How'd you do it, Frank? How'd you pass the bar in Louisiana?
Frank Abagnale, Jr.: What are you doing here?
Carl Hanratty: Listen...
Frank Abagnale, Jr.: I'm sorry I put you through all this.
Carl Hanratty: You go back to Europe, you're gonna die in Perpignan Prison. You try to run here in the States, we'll send you back...
When Hanratty is in the laundromat he pulls a red sweater out of the dryer that changes his clothes pink. But, the lady who grabs the sweater from him is also doing a white load. It has been pointed out that she is also doing a white load, but that sweater is clearly from a previous load of her laundry, likely a load of colored clothes, It likely clung to the inside of the machine, was missed when she emptied it, and turned Carl's white shirts pink.
