Danny Hunter: [decides to sacrifice himself] You will never win. Acts of Hate often bring forth Acts of Love and so you will never win. In another World, you might be tied to this chair and I might be holding the gun. So I suppose you've been unlucky. But you will never win.

Al Qaeda Man: [infuriated, embarrassed] I'm... unlucky?

Fiona Carter: Danny, don't!

Danny Hunter: If I weren't tied to this chair, I would be up in your face, you Death-Worshipping Fascist!

Al Qaeda Man: And you know what my answer would be.

[Shoots Danny in the back of the head]
