This is the police. We know you're in there, so come out with your hands up!

You'll never take me alive, copper!
Oh, alright then - sergeant!
~ The failed arrest

The Robber is an antagonist in Monty Python's And Now For Something Completely Different. He is a criminal escaped from jail who appears at various points in the film. He is played by Terry Jones and John Cleese.

When explaining how toothpaste is an allegory of political views, the narrator is shot dead. The criminal then runs into an alleyway and the cops corner him. He says they won't take him alive, but they drop a tonne on his hiding place. They think him dead and leave.

But later in the film the robber comes in to a laundry shop, mistaking it for a bank. He wants piles of money but in the end makes do with panties.
