Quotes

[last lines]

Darcy: Did you choose not to kill me 'cause I've got a wife and a kid?

Victor: No. I didn't kill you because they've got you.

[first lines]

Darcy: [holding infant son] It wasn't meant to be this way, you know? We make our plans, sure. But life... life is what happens to you along the way. You know, first I didn't want this. I didn't want to connect. I didn't want to get involved. But she kept on with me, you know. This is what life is. This is why we're here. To connect. To... to build. We're here to build something. And then we had Theo. And then I understood that... you know, she was right. We're not meant to be alone. You know what she said to me? She said that even the most damaged heart can be mended. Even the most damaged heart.

Alphonse: What happened to your face?

Beatrice: Car accident. What happened to yours?

Beatrice: [to Victor] I never thought about it before. Revenge. But... when I saw you kill that man in your apartment... I knew I had my answer.

Alphonse: I set a trap, Victor. I said whoever walks through that door at nine o'clock was going to have a real bad night. The person doing this to me - he's hurt. Someone who lost someone. Like the people in the picture. And he's in a great deal of pain because of that. And it's a pain I've caused. Then he kills Paul, and found he was in both feet. Victor, I want him to know something. I want him to know that if there's anything left in this world that he still cares about, I'm going to find it and I'm going to burn it down. He's probably wondering right now what I'm thinking. What my plan is. And how much I know. Wouldn't you be wondering what I'm thinking?

Victor: I would.

Alphonse: You know, you're the only one I can trust Victor. You know why?

Victor: No.

Alphonse: Because you saved my life at Harry's. It would be something, though, if you saved my life only to be the one who kills me.

Gregor: [to Victor] I know why you've been waiting so long. Why you haven't killed him. I think you're afraid that when it's over, it won't mend your heart.

Victor: Alphonse. Don't go anywhere.

Alphonse: You coming for me?

Victor: No, I'm coming for her.

Beatrice: You speak French?

Victor: I'd like to.

Beatrice: Yeah?

Victor: Sure.

Beatrice: Another language?

Victor: Hungarian.

Beatrice: You're Hungarian?

[Victor silently nods]

Beatrice: You don't have an accent.

Victor: I work very hard to get rid of it.

Beatrice: I was involved in a car accident last year. I was a beautician before. They rebuilt part of my face, but it's... it's kind of hard to give advice on beauty now. And, uh, I have to smile a lot in my job, and most of the time it hurts to smile.

Victor: I don't get to smile so much. My work.

Beatrice: No?

Victor: No. Maybe you and I should switch jobs.

Beatrice: I swear sometimes. Especially when I drink.

Victor: Me too.

Beatrice: Fuck.

Victor: Shit.

Victor: I thought you talk a lot.

Beatrice: I thought you don't.

Victor: It must be the company. Usually I don't.

Beatrice: Have you made any progress?

Victor: I will.

Beatrice: I know. Because I realize now that if I call the police and tell them what I saw, it's not prison you're afraid of. It's that you won't get to finish your revenge.

Albanian Hostage: We killed you. We killed you all. We killed you all!

Victor: I swear on their graves you didn't.

Albanian Hostage: We killed you all!

Victor: I swear! I swear on their graves you didn't!

Gregor: What happened to that girl? That girl you told me about, across the way from you. You ever meet her?

Victor: Yeah. I met her.

Gregor: And?

[Victor doesn't respond]

Gregor: You didn't die two years ago.

Beatrice: He didn't pay!

Victor: Stop saying that! I understand.

Beatrice: You're going to do it.

Victor: What I did has nothing to do with you!

Beatrice: You have to do this. He ruined my life. I have nothing. I am nothing. I want it done as soon as possible. Then I will forget. I will begin my life. And I will forget that I ever met you.

Victor: [yelling] Do you know what it is to kill a man?

Beatrice: I will forget that I ever met you.

Victor: Well it's not a bug! It's not a rat!

Beatrice: I will never kill a bug or a rat. He's much worse than these things!

Victor: You don't know what you're getting into with me. You've no fucking idea!

Gregor: For fourteen months, you've infiltrated Alphonse. They wanted to know why you've been so long to do what needs to be done. He said if he was lucky enough to be standing like you are, he'd want revenge too. But we're all worried you wait too long. Always kill the devil quickly when you find him. That was his advice. I said you wanted to be close enough to watch him suffer. But I really don't know the reason you're waiting.

Victor: My real name is Laszlo Kerick, and I was born in Hungary. A few years ago my wife and I came to America. I was an engineer before. We came here looking for work. Took an apartment in a building. It was a building they wanted to control.

Beatrice: The men I saw?

[Victor silently nods]

Victor: They got most people out of the building. One night they came and they fired some shots. To scare us, so we would leave. A bullet went through a wall and my daughter was killed while she slept.

[pause]

Victor: We were going to testify. My wife and I. But the man responsible for it all, Alphonse - he gave his orders to make sure he never went to trial. And they were followed. He was afraid to use his own guys, so they sent a crew of Albanians after us. They killed my wife, and they thought they killed me too. And they should've made sure of it.

Beatrice: When I manage to forget what happened to me, when there are no mirrors and no people that reminds me, when my mom makes me laugh... in these moments, I have hope.

[pause]

Beatrice: My ma... my ma says that I, um... it is these moments that makes the pain bearable. These moments, where I should try to find them where I can and hang onto them. But they're fleeting. And then I remember and... and I'm filled with so much hate. It's like I want to set the whole world on fire.

Gregor: [to Victor] You lost a wife and a daughter. But don't forget I lost a niece and her little one. I don't want to lose you too.

Victor: I don't want you to do that. Bring me food.

Beatrice: My ma likes to cook. It'll just go to waste otherwise. I'll wedge it in between the mustard and those plastic explosives.

Valentine Louzon: Thank you for returning my Tupperware.

Victor: Of course.

Valentine Louzon: People usually don't, like it comes with the food. Free Tupperware! Do you like the food?

Victor: Yeah, the food was... it was very good. Beatrice didn't tell you?

Valentine Louzon: She was nervous you wouldn't like her cooking. I always told her the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. One of the ways. She'll keep you well fed, that's for sure.
