Linda: I was always the butterfly, and you were always the moth. And now it's time to embrace the flame.
The Kidnapper: Words... are cheap. Words... come and go. All I wanted from her was a gesture. Now, five million dollars withdrawed from Ms. CEO's account, that's a gesture. See, now that's a GRAND gesture. I like that.
The Kidnapper: Show me the money. Oh, If I had known it'd be this easy, I'd have lost my mind a long time ago. Confirm the exact amount.
The Driver: Five million, 88- ...

The Kidnapper: So how does it feel to hold a person's life in your hand?
The Kidnapper: Now, what's in that number? Two years missed salary, profit participation, bonuses. Mm, I've even had to pay for these power lunches. So, what's in a number? What's in a number? Ypu know what? Maybe nothing's in a number. Maybe a number is just a number.
The Driver: I don't get it. Why are you burning it all?
The Kidnapper: You know, whoever says you can't take it with you...
