    meaning of bold...

    Hi, these're my three questions below, thanks for your help!

    (Script's from Prison Break 01x03)
    John Abruzzi - What happened in there was my way of saying
    - I know I been going about this whole thing the wrong way.
    - I'm trying to make amends here.
    - Bygones be bygones?
    Michael - You're a mercurial man, John.
    J - I prefer bold. (What does " bold " mean in this sentence?)
    - Tell me what you need from me.
    M - A trade.
    - You get me a plane, I'll get you Fibonacci.
    J - What do you need a plane for?
    M - I think you know.
    J - I help you, I'm in. (What does this sentence mean? Does he mean he wanna become involved in this thing?) You know that, don't you?
    M - I do.
    J - Just got to know the exact date and time.
    M - I'll tell you soon enough.
    J - Soon enough ain't gonna cut it. ( What does sentence mean?)
    - I need to be outside these walls before Fibonacci testifies.
    M - You will be.
    J - He testifies in one month.
    M - Then you'll be out in plenty of time.
    J - If not... you're a corpse.
    - You'd better cut the crap. Tell me the exact date and time,
    - so I can start making the arrangements.
    M - I don't know if I can trust you with that information yet.
    J - Why not?
    M - Like I said, John, you're a mercurial man.

    Thanks and have a nice day!

    prefer bold=I prefer to be unusual, outstanding

    I am in= I am interested/involved/I am doing it

    soon enough ain't gonna cut it=soon enough I am not gonna deal with it

    Re: meaning of bold...

    Michael - You're a mercurial man, John.
    J - I prefer "bold." (instead of mercurial)


    J - What do you need a plane for?
    M - I think you know.
    J - I help you, I'm in. (Yes, he's wants to become involved in this thing)
    You know that, don't you?
    M - I do.

    J - Just got to know the exact date and time.
    M - I'll tell you soon enough. (in time for you to do what you need to)
    J - Telling me "Soon enough" is not adequate. I need to be outside these walls before Fibonacci testifies.
