Shooter (2007/I)
Bob Lee Swagger: Where are we meeting?
Colonel Isaac Johnson: Somewhere where I can see you coming from a god damned long way off.

Colonel Isaac Johnson: Bob Lee Swagger, you're a hard man to find.
Bob Lee Swagger: Not hard enough.

Colonel Isaac Johnson: I won. You lost. Get used to the idea, son.
Bob Lee Swagger: I'm not your son.

Bob Lee Swagger: I don't really like the President much. Didn't like the one before that, much, either.
Colonel Isaac Johnson: You like the idea of the President, living in a free country. Do we allow America to be ruled by thugs?
Bob Lee Swagger: Sure, some years we do.

Colonel Isaac Johnson: Sometimes to catch a wolf you need to tie the bait to a tree.
Michael Sandor: Then what happens to the bait.
Colonel Isaac Johnson: Hard to say, but thats the nature of being the bait.

Michael Sandor: Gunnery Sergeant Bob Lee Swagger, USMC, Retired. He is the best there is.
Louis Dobbler: His last assignment went wrong. Put in unfriendly territory on a loan-out and left as expendable. Opposing force sent an attack helicopter and a hundred-man company. His best friend and spotter was killed. No official report.
Jack Payne: Ghost report says he inflicted 70 percent casualties; the rest fled.
Louis Dobbler: The Agency asset that left him there to die? Suddenly removed from the face of the earth two weeks after. They never laid it at Bob Lee's feet. He retired a week later.
Colonel Isaac Johnson: I guess Bob Lee didn't think he was expendable.

Colonel Isaac Johnson: What the hell am I doing here? You've got nothing on me. I'm covered. Call the Joint Chief.
Attorney General Russert: That won't be necessary, Colonel, as I have already received no less than a dozen calls from highly-ranked and powerfully-placed individuals telling me to let you go. But the joy of checks and balances in our government is that I can, and am, indeed, required by law, to tell them to fuck off.

Bob Lee Swagger: You know what it takes to make a shot at that range? Everything comes into play that far, humidity, elevation, temperature, wind, spindrift. There's a 6 to 10-second flight time so you have to shoot at where the target's going to be. Even the Coriolis effect, the spin of the Earth, comes into play. President'll be wearing body armour, that means a headshot at over a mile. You believe there's a shooter involved capable of making this shot?
Colonel Isaac Johnson: Yes.
Bob Lee Swagger: Well, then you got a real problem. You need to find the shooter.
