Ransom (1996)
Tom Mullen: Why would they ever let my son go, no matter what I do? I mean, no matter what I do... pay, don't pay, comply, tell him to go fuck himself - why would they give him back? I mean, he's a witness any way you cut it. It's all bullshit, it's all just... seven out of ten.
Kate Mullen: What are you saying?
Tom Mullen: All right: Morlock Man gets his money, I don't think we'll ever see Sean again. That's if he's still alive to begin with.
Agent Lonnie Hawkins: Whoa, now. Are you talking about not paying?
Kate Mullen: No! No, we pay him!
Tom Mullen: Now wait a minute. Listen to me... Morlock man says the pickup guy will give me an address for Sean. I get there, the guy sticks a gun in my face. I said, "You want the money, now give me the address? Where's the address?" You should've seen his face. He had no, absolutely NO idea what I was talking about. None!
Agent Lonnie Hawkins: Okay...
Tom Mullen: This is not business to him. This is very personal.
Agent Lonnie Hawkins: I tell you that everybody pays, and we get back 7 out of 10.
Tom Mullen: If we give him what he wants, he will kill Sean!
Agent Lonnie Hawkins: Tom, you've got to play the odds, man. I've been doing this for eighteen years, and if I were a betting man, I would bet on the people who pay every time, out of the gate.
Tom Mullen: Did you bet on the ones where you got back a corpse?
