In the Line of Fire (1993)
Sam Campagna: Frank, The President sent his limo for you.
Lilly Raines: Well, that's the least he could do.
Frank Horrigan: Good, I love public transportation.

Lilly Raines: What makes you think he'll call again?
Frank Horrigan: Oh, he'll call again. He's got, uh, "panache."
Lilly Raines: Panache?
Frank Horrigan: Yeah, it means flamboyance.
Lilly Raines: Mm, I know what it means.
Frank Horrigan: Really? I had to look it up.

[Lilly's wearing an evening dress]
Lilly Raines: What are you looking at?
Frank Horrigan: I was just wondering where you hide your firearm. Don't tell me, let me guess.

Frank Horrigan: I've never worked with a female agent before. How many are there?
Lilly Raines: About 125.
Frank Horrigan: Mm. Pure window dressing.
Lilly Raines: Excuse me?
Frank Horrigan: Window dressing. About 125 out of a little over 2,000. They have you all around so that the President can look good to his feminist voters.
Lilly Raines: Do you make an effort to be obnoxious, or is it a gift?
Frank Horrigan: It's a gift. Let's face it, half the things we do are window dressing. Take running alongside that limousine: it'd take an anti-tank missile to put a dent in that damn thing. There we are, out for show, trying to make the President look more presidential.

Frank Horrigan: How's the First Lady? She ask about me?
Lilly Raines: Have you gotten to know them yet?
Frank Horrigan: Well, I normally prefer not to get to know the people I'm protecting.
Lilly Raines: Oh, yeah? Why's that?
Frank Horrigan: Well, you never know. You might decide they're not worth taking a bullet for.

Frank Horrigan: So you had an affair with an agent, and it came out badly.
Lilly Raines: He wasn't an agent.
Frank Horrigan: But he left you because you wouldn't quit your job. You were broken-hearted.
Lilly Raines: I left him, Frank, because I wouldn't quit my job for him. And it did break my heart.
Frank Horrigan: You vowed never again to ever let a man come between you and your career.
Lilly Raines: No...
Frank Horrigan: Except... now you're in love with me, and it screws your little head up.
Lilly Raines: Frank, blow your nose. Here.
Frank Horrigan: Sorry. What were to happen if I, uh, gave up my job for you?
Lilly Raines: Why would you do that?
Frank Horrigan: Well, maybe I vowed to never again let my career come between me and a woman.

Frank Horrigan: Well, the secretaries get prettier and prettier.
Lilly Raines: And the field agents get older and older.
Sam Campagna: Lilly's an agent, Frank.
Frank Horrigan: I knew that. I just wanted to see if she had a sense of humor.

Lilly Raines: I heard you and Nixon didn't get along.
Frank Horrigan: Now, that's not true. His chief of staff, though, that was a different story. I remember one time, he wanted me to go out and get rid of some anti-war protestors. I said no, talking about the Bill of Rights and so on. And he says, "look, when I'm talking to you, I am the President." I said, "The President? That's funny, you look more like a sack of shit in a cheap suit to me, sir!"
Lilly Raines: [laughs] Well, I like the "sir." It's a classy touch.
Frank Horrigan: I thought so.

Frank Horrigan: I'll bet you that brown pigeon down there flies off before the white one.
Lilly Raines: How do you know?
Frank Horrigan: I know things about pigeons, Lilly.

Horrigan: [after someone called the paramedics] Okay, who's the joker?
Lilly Raines: It may not have been a joke, you were looking kind of peaked out there.
Horrigan: Well, when I find out who it was, I'm gonna pay him back in spades.
Lilly Raines: What makes you think it was a *him*?
[walks away]

Lilly Raines: Well, time flies when you're being annoyed.

Lilly Raines: The President was humiliated.
Frank Horrigan: He's alive, isn't he?
Lilly Raines: Yeah, well, we're here to safeguard his dignity as well.
Frank Horrigan: I'm not paid for that.
Lilly Raines: What about the time Kennedy's girlfriend was caught in the White House and you said she was with you?
Frank Horrigan: Don't you go believing every rumor someone tells you.
Lilly Raines: Frank, Wilder told me the whole story. About how you were suspended a month without pay. I'd say that was safeguarding his dignity.
Frank Horrigan: That was different. *He* was different.
Lilly Raines: Maybe you were different.
Frank Horrigan: I was different. The whole damn country was different. Everything would be different right now too if I'd been half as a paranoid as I am today. Fuck.

[Horrigan and Leary are in a glass elevator. Sharpshooters are in place to take out Leary but can't see the target because the lights in the elevator are out. Horrigan is on the floor while Leary is standing over him and pointing a gun at him. Unbeknownst to Leary, Horrigan has a microphone concealed in his hand and is transmitting]
Horrigan: Go ahead and shoot, dammit.
Lilly Raines: They can't see inside. If they fire, you'll be hit.
Mitch Leary: I want you to thank me first, Frank.
Horrigan: Shut up and shoot.
Lilly Raines: All right, Frank.
Mitch Leary: All right, Frank.
Lilly Raines: Shooters, stand by to fire. Wait for my command.
Mitch Leary: [Cocks the gun] Sleep well, my friend.
Horrigan: Just one thing: aim high.
Mitch Leary: What?
Lilly Raines: Aim high.
Horrigan: Now!
Mitch Leary: [Sees the microphone and realizes Horrigan has been talking to Raines] You bastard!
Lilly Raines: Fire.
[Glass is shattered by gunfire. Leary is forced to duck, giving Horrigan an opportunity to grapple with him]
