I'm sorry.. we were trying to be like Robin Hood- you know, steal from the rich to give to the poor. But... really, all we were doing was stealing from the rich... and the poor... and keeping it for ourselves. That's what we did, really.
Kit's dad is seen leaving for Chicago in a Flxible Clipper bus, which was not produced until 1937, three years after the movie's 1934 setting.
