Quotes

Irwin Gunner: [on radio] White Rat, this message is for you. Now I know what I'm up against. I'd forgotten how quickly rats breed. How many of you now? A whole department?
Cromwell: [to operator] Try and get a fix.
Irwin Gunner: Rats can hide. But not from me, we both know that, don't we? I've put my mark on you. I'm going to cut off your tail. Destroy you.
