Thomas Beckett: [to Cole] We're here to put a bullet in a man's head and let God sort it out. You better just pray we get our asses out of this country alive. All your dream shit, stops here.

Thomas Beckett: Let's move out into town.
Cole: That town's gotta be hot!
[Beckett turns around, looks at Cole, briefly looks at his watch, and looks back up at Cole]

Thomas Beckett: Classified my ass! Get rid of him!
Cole: Calm down, Beckett.
Thomas Beckett: NO! We're on a mission, we're not here to make new friends.
Cole: Your mission is over. It ended when you killed Valstoria. This man is mine.
Thomas Beckett: What do you mean yours?
Cole: My mission: Get captured, find this man and bring him out of the country. Your mission was just a setup for mine. Come on now, don't act like this is the first time the government has ever fucked you over. You made it out. Why did you come back?
Thomas Beckett: I had my reasons.
Cole: Yeah? Well, I wouldn't have done the same for you.

Thomas Beckett: Don't take a piss. Bugs will swarm right up through your dick. Good night.

Richard Miller: When the "rush" is over, it hurts. Doesn't it?
Thomas Beckett: What you're feeling now ain't the worst pain. The worst thing is not feeling the hurt anymore.

Thomas Beckett: What's that?
Richard Miller: Got it out of the catalogue when I was with D.C. SWAT. We called it "Gucciflage".

Richard Miller: [smirks] Yeah.

Richard Miller: What the hell are those for?
Thomas Beckett: Respect.

Thomas Beckett: One Shot. One Kill. No Exceptions.

Thomas Beckett: Let me tell ya somethin' - sittin' in an office giving men orders to kill is the same thing as puttin' a bullet in someone's heart yourself. The same. Goddamn. THING.

Richard Miller: [seeing El Cirujano for the first time] He's a fuckin' American!

Sniper 3 (2004) (V)
Beckett: Different kinds. Whenever I kill a man it's because he needs killing. I look at his life and if it adds up to nothing I take him out. But you, Finn, you got to liking it. I never did. What's this all about, Finn? How does it all end here?

Beckett: Best damn sniper rifle ever made, if you ask me.
