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

(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

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.
