Quotes

[the phone rings]

Undersecretary of Defense Daniel Harper: It's for you.

[takes the phone]

Robert: Yeah?

John: [over phone] You've just been erased.

John: [to dead alligator] You're luggage!

Tony Two Toes: There they are. Commie bastards!

Mikey: They're not communists any more, Tony. They're a federation of independent liberated states.

Tony Two Toes: Don't make me hurt you, Mikey.

Calderon: Don't you ever get tired of babysitting scumbags?

John: Yeah, but in your case I'll make an exception.

Lee: [On the computer on Donahue's office] Are we near?

John: You were right about Donahue, he left himself a back door. But we've still got to break his code. I say that we have about five or six minutes before they trace us.

[scrolling through the records]

John: Do you recognize any of this?

Lee: No. But, we're getting warm, it's an accounting format.

John: Okay, stop me if I get lucky.

Lee: UBS, United Bank of Syria.

John: $52 million? If it's an arms sale, it's a major one. Let's see who their buyer is.

Lee: Sergei Ivanovich Petrofski? Who's that?

John: [sighs] Bad news. He runs a cartel in the Russian mafia, selling drugs, guns, and influence to some very unpleasant people.

[Scrolls lower]

John: There it is, delivery date. Tonight, midnight? A thousand units at Baltimore Harbor.

Lee: But a thousand units of what?

[Screen reveals the item]

Lee: An EM gun.

John: A *thousand* EM guns.

Lee: Are they insane? If these things get offshore...

John: There'll be a whole new era of world terrorism.

Donahue: We're way beyond bullshit here.

John: Some of his Colombian associates wanted to introduce him to God personally.

Father Rodriguez: I've been given a second chance at life. I'm using it to do God's work.

Mikey: Oh, that's Louis. He didn't pay.

Tony Two Toes: He didn't pay? Why?

Mikey: He needed a few extra days to come up with the money, so I told him it was okay.

Tony Two Toes: You going soft on me, Mikey? What exactly did he say?

Johnny C: He said, "Tell that fat fuck, Tony Two Toes, I ain't payin' another dime!"

Tony Two Toes: I know that voice... but it can't be him, unless he's a ghost.

Undersecretary of Defense Daniel Harper: Shut up! You mind telling me what the hell's going on?

Robert: I'll have the situation contained in 24 hours.

Undersecretary of Defense Daniel Harper: Not good enough! The shipment goes down tonight.

Robert: Everything is going as planned. But the first thing we've got to do is cancel that shipment.

Undersecretary of Defense Daniel Harper: And what do you propose we do with 10 tons of assault weaponry that's not supposed to exist?

Robert: I am the eyes and ears of your world, gentlemen, and I'm telling you, there's too much heat.

Undersecretary of Defense Daniel Harper: You don't get it. The money has already changed hands. These are not the type of people you cancel on!

Robert: Listen...

Undersecretary of Defense Daniel Harper: No, you listen! The disk, the girl, the guns. By dawn they don't exist. Are we clear?

Robert: Yes, sir. Crystal.

John: That weapon, it came from your company, right?

Lee: Yes. It's an EMP prototype, it's not even supposed to exist.

John: EMP?

Lee: Electro-Magnetic Pulse. No gunpowder, no conventional bullets. They fire caseless aluminum shells at nearly the speed of light.

John: You're talking about the rail gun?

Lee: [surprised] That's right.

John: The Navy has been working on those for years. But the smallest one I've ever seen is mounted on a battleship.

Lee: Cyrez was contracted to scale them down, design a man-portable version. The most powerful assault rifle on earth. They took millions, then said the physics were impossible.

John: It looked real enough to me.

Johnny C: We're fine, thanks.

John: Just an idea.

Johnny C: Evan here just... worries about me. He and I...
