Sean Miller: I saw his wife and daughter die, but she and Neddy blew it. Ryan's still alive.

Kevin O'Donnell: They're not dead, Sean.

Sean Miller: What?

Kevin O'Donnell: They survived it. I can't say it any plainer than that. It doesn't matter. Your trip served its purpose.

Sean Miller: It *does* matter!

Lt. Cmdr. Robby Jackson: Attention to orders. I have a presentation to make. For service above and beyond the call of duty of a tourist, or even a Marine, we recognize Professor John Patrick Ryan, with the Order of the Purple Target.

[he hangs a medal around Jack's neck in the shape of a bulls-eye, with the words "SHOOT ME" on it]

Lt. Cmdr. Robby Jackson: And hope that he will duck next time, lest he become part of history, rather than a teacher of it.

Dr. Caroline "Cathy" Ryan: It was him wasn't it? He's never gonna leave us alone.

Jack Ryan: He'll never get that close to us again, honey. That's why he calls in the middle of the night. It's all he can do.

Dr. Caroline "Cathy" Ryan: You get him, Jack. I don't care what you have to do. Just get him.

Admiral Greer: SAS could take out any one of these camps in under two minutes. Kill everybody there and be gone before the echo fades. Are you sure this is the same woman?

Sean Miller: How's the family, Ryan? Nearly lost 'em, didn't you? It's easy to get at them. You should look after your family better, you know? Are you there?

Jack Ryan: Yeah.

Sean Miller: I understand your little girl's feeling better, eh? Lost her spleen though, eh? Pity, that. Make it a mighty tough on her to fight off infection, eh Jacky?

Jack Ryan: You sick son of a bitch!

[showing Marty some pictures of the woman they're after, provided by Paddy O'Neil]

Jack Ryan: Paddy O'Neil can sleep at night. In fact he probably enjoys the irony. She's not Irish; she's English.

[about Paddy O'Neil and the pictures he provided to Jack]

Marty Cantor: You tell O'Neil that you're looking for a girl, he gives you the pictures of a girl. He obliges you to get you off his back. And you believe him?

Jack Ryan: I didn't tell him I was looking for a girl, Marty.

Marty Cantor: They were moving him to Albany Prison in the Isle of Wight while it happened. We think he's left the country.

Admiral Greer: Marty, excuse me. Let's deal in what we know and not what we don't. We know he's escaped. We know it happened in Kent near the Channel. If he's left the country... Jack, listening? The chances he'd come here, that he'd try, that he could come here are so remote, I have trouble even saying it.

Jack Ryan: And yet your first instinct was to come all the way here and tell me.

Lt. Cmdr. Robby Jackson: So, you just waded on in like John Wayne. Why'd you do it? What were you thinking, man?

Jack Ryan: I don't know. I wasn't thinking.

Lt. Cmdr. Robby Jackson: That's it? You sound like some of my students.

Jack Ryan: It just pissed me off. I couldn't just stand there and watch him shoot those people right in front of me. It was... rage. Pure rage... Just made me mad.

Lt. Cmdr. Robby Jackson: Here's hoping you never get mad at me, man.

Jack Ryan: Listen! Who are we looking for here, huh? IRA terrorists or some ultra-violent faction of the IRA, fighting the cause their way? Jimmy O'Reardon checked into a hotel with a woman with long red hair. Long red hair! This is who we should be looking for! We find her... we'll find him.

Jack Ryan: I want to know where Sean Miller and Kevin O'Donnell are.

Paddy O'Neil: [scoffs] Let me try and understand this. You want me to sell out my fellow lrishmen to you? I don't think you understand me at all.

Jack Ryan: Oh, l think l do.

Paddy O'Neil: Listen! l don't give a damn what they've done. But the day l sell out my own people is the day l'll put a bullet through my head.

Jack Ryan: So, that's it then?

Paddy O'Neil: That's it. You know on second thought maybe I won't have a drink with you

Jack Ryan: Fine. I'll go home.

Paddy O'Neil: Have a nice trip.

Jack Ryan: I'll go home and call all the news stations! Invite them into my daughter's hospital ward. Give them what they want!

Jack Ryan: [Gets in O'Neil's face] I don't give a shit whether you did it or not. But if you don't help me, I will put such a stranglehold on your gun money that your boys will be out in the streets throwing rocks! I will *fucking* destroy you! I will make it my mission in life!

Insp. Robert Highland: [to Sean Miller] Although l disapprove of the things you've done, l can't quite bring myself to condemn you. l can't, because l understand where the hatred comes from. l more than understand it. But the fact is, we're very near the darkest hole in all of Great Britain.
