"The Drop" movie quotes follow the action when a drop bar, packed with gangster money, is robbed leaving those working at the bar left to deal with the consequences. The crime drama was directed by Michaël R. Roskam using a screenplay from Dennis Lehane. Including the last feature film appearance by the late James Gandolfini, "The Drop" opened in theaters on September 12, 2014.

In "The Drop," Bob (Tom Hardy) and Cousin Marv (James Gandolfini) operate Cousin Marv's Bar, a local watering hole that Marv formerly owned, but has now been taken over by gangsters and used as a drop point for dirty money. So one night when the bar is robbed by masked men, Bob and Marv are on the hook for the lost money.

Not only do Bob and Marv have detectives (John Ortiz and Elizabeth Rodriguez) knocking on their door looking to find out what happened--and what was happening in the bar to begin with--but they also have the gangsters who own the bar after them looking for their missing cash. This forces Bob and Marv into a corner, the only exit from which might mean they will do something they cannot ever take back.

"The Drop" joins the winding down summer 2014 movie season that also included "Dolphin Tale 2," "No Good Deed," "The Identical," "Frontera," "The Longest Week," "The November Man," "The Congress," "Life of Crime," "Starred Up," "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," "If I Stay," "When the Game Stands Tall," "Are You Here," "The Expendables 3," "Let's Be Cops," "Life After Beth," "Frank," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "The Hundred-Foot Journey "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Get On Up," "Hercules," "Lucy," "Magic in the Moonlight."

Bob: "In Brooklyn, money, it changes hands all night long and it's not the kind of money you can deposit in the bank. But all that money needs to end up somewhere. They call it a drop bar. We just hide the entire city's dirty money right in plain sight."

Bob gives a quick breakdown of the setting and plot of the film. In Brooklyn, mob money is exchanged in plain sight all the time, including at the bar he tends. Few realize that it's happening all around them, but it's definitely happening often.

Nadia: "I heard that Cousin Marv does own the bar, some hard guys do. You're not a hard guy."
Bob: "Yeah, we had a crew when we was back in the day, when we was younger. Marv, he thought he was a tough guy. Then the neighborhood changed. It wasn't enough to be tough. You had to be mean."
Nadia: "You still in the life?"
Bob: "Nope, I just tend the bar."

Nadia asks Bob about the situation with the bar to get a sense of who Bob is. As Bob explains, Cousin Marv once owned the bar but times have changed and the bar, along with the neighborhood, have changed hands.
