The Killer Elite (1975)
Gig Young: Lawrence Weyburn
Lawrence Weyburn : Chung, I thought somebody had taken care of him.
O'Leary : It's just a question of time. But it's not in the national interest that it should happen either today, or for that matter tomorrow. It's especially central that it doesn't happen under any circumstances within the confines of the United States. What happens to him Friday, after he's gone, is no longer our concern.
O'Leary : [examining an ailing plant in Weyburn's office] Talking to them isn't enough. Their longevity lies within the context of your communication.
Lawrence Weyburn : Oh, I know, I know, I know. I even recite the love sonnets of Elizabeth Barrett Browning to the poor thing.
O'Leary : Hmmm. It's probably dying of boredom.
Cap Collins : Danny, how are you?
O'Leary : Did you ever consider my dear Cap how much energy you've wasted over your 47 years mustering up that good fellow smile and that insincere handshake?
Lawrence Weyburn : I checked with the staff doctor, Mike. I also called a friend who is considered to be one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the world. He says, given a year, you may be able to walk up a flight of stairs. That leg of yours will never be anything but a wet noodle.
