Natalie: Everything's going to be fine, guys. Just - just do what he says.
Flash: How can you be so calm?
Natalie: I don't know if I am calm, okay? I just - I've been through worse.

Natalie: Oh, like being strapped to a table and your grandfather ready to cut your heart out.
Flash: Oh. Yeah, you got me beat, then. Never mind.
Antonio: What would you call that, Jessica?
Jessica: Doing what I have to do. Mitch has hurt my family in every way possible and I want to make sure that not only does he pay, that he never hurts my family again.
Antonio: Oh yeah? Well, not tonight you're not.
Natalie: I don't know, something twisted. I mean, this whole place is twisted. It's like some twisted shrine of him and mother. What'd you do down here, gramps? Count your money and stare at yourself while groping at your daughter? Bastard!
Jessica: Do you know what an evil, lying tramp Shawna is?
Rex: Yeah. That's why I like her.
Marcie: All my life, Al, nobody has even been attracted to me.
Al: Well, listen, those days are over, Marcie.

David Vickers: Bo, don't neglect to turn on your lights and your siren. I will be right behind.

Doctor Michael McBain: So... my brother, the police detective, wants his brother, the doctor, to perform an autopsy. An illegal autopsy. Off the record, with *no* permission at all, and, *and* against every possible legal and ethical rule in *both* our professions. This is it, huh? This is how it happens, right? This is how the McBain boys go right down the tube.
Detective John McBain: We could always enroll in that truck-driving school.
Rex Balsom: [talking about Tommy] We didn't do anything... except find out and not tell anyone about him being a kidnapped baby. That would make us accessories.

Rex Balsom: I thought you loved it. With your furry vest and fuzzy hat.
David Vickers: Do you happen to have a room available?
Roxy Balsom: Mmm... no.

David Vickers: Okay well he's not going to show up, so I'll take his room.
Roxy Balsom: No you won't.
David Vickers: Look, Roxy, c'mon I'm desperate. Don't you even have a broom closet? Only much larger with a king size bed and a view of something that's not a crime scene.
