Sandra Bullock: Annie
Jack : [answering phone] Harry! Tell me good news man.
Howard Payne : Oh, I'm sorry Jack. He didn't make it.
Jack : [realizes; slight pause] Fuck!
Howard Payne : It was the watch that lead him to me, wasn't it? It seemed a little hammy to me, to build a bomb out of my precious retirement gift. But you know, I figured a sign that said "Howard Payne" would be pushing it.
Jack : I'm gonna rip your fucking spine out, I swear to God.
Howard Payne : You're gonna do exactly as you're told! Jack, we both know he was the brains of your particular operation. You can't beat me, you're gonna pay me every dollar. Otherwise, you, the wildcat, and every innocent person on that bus, are gonna end up just like your friend. You paying attention? Jack, you listening to me? Jack? Jack!
Jack : Yeah...
Howard Payne : Good! Now you tell them that the drop point is Pershing Square. You drop the bags and leave. I don't show until all your people are gone. It's getting on to 11 AM, Jack, and I think it's gonna be a very pretty day.
Howard Payne : [hangs up; Jack flips out]
Annie : Jack stop it! We're really scared and we need you right now. I can't do this by myself! Jack, please?
Jack : [chuckles] We're gonna die.
Annie : No we're not. We got this far alright?
[Jack looks at Annie's jacket]
Jack : I'll be damned. You go to the University of Arizona?
Annie : Yeah, so?
Jack : Good football team.
Annie : Yeah? I guess so, I wouldn't know.
Jack : Arizona Wildcats.
Annie : Right...
Jack : He can see you.
Annie : What?
Jack : He can see you. Just keep looking straight ahead.
Jack : [Jack looks around; finds the camera] He called you a Wildcat before. I didn't even pick up on it. Bastard's got a camera right in your face. He can see the whole bus. He's been playing me from minute one.
Annie : Well, he can see me but can he hear me?
Jack : Doesn't look like it he's just watching you.
Stephens : First time in LA.
Annie : Oh no, I live here.
Stephens : No, mine. Oh that's just funny, you heard me wrong. Nah, I'm sight-seeing.
Annie : Oh, really?
Stephens : Yeah. I hate to use the word 'tourist,' but it's not like I can hide it...
Annie : Not really.
Stephens : [sigh] Did you know it took me three hours to get here from the airport? I got so lost. LA's one big place, but I guess you don't notice, seeing as you live here. I'm such a yokel. There, I said it!
Annie : Oh jeez. You know what? I got gum on my seat, GUM!
[sits on a different bus seat nearer the front]
Annie : There's gum on my seat... GUM!
Annie : Hey! Get your ass behind the yellow line.
Annie : We gotta stop this thing!
Jack : No! Don't! Stay above 50!
Annie : But Sam's been shot! We gotta get him off!
Jack : You slow down, and this bus'll explode!
[the passengers all look up, alarmed]
Jack : There is a bomb on this bus. If we slow down, it'll blow. If anyone tries to get off, it'll explode.
Terry : Bullshit! Yeah, there's a bomb. Some funny joke, man.
Jack : Are we gonna have a problem now?
Annie : So, why is all this happening? I mean, what did we do, bomb the guy's country or something?
Jack : No, it's just a guy who wants money.
Annie : I don't buy that. It's not a very good way to make money. So, um, what is this guy's deal?
Jack : A while back, he held some people for ransom. It went sour, and now he's a little pissed at me.
Annie : Well, what does that have to do with us?
Jack : Nothing.
Jack : Everybody, I'm Jack Traven, LAPD. We have a slight situation on the bus here. Ma'am, if you'll please sit down...
Annie : No, I won't sit down. You're scaring the shit out of these people.
Jack : Ma'am, please!
[she sits down]
Jack : If everybody will stay in your seats and remain calm, we should be able to diffuse the situation. So sit tight and...
Ray : [standing and drawing a gun] Get away from me!
Jack : [drawing his own] I don't know you, man. I'm not here for you. Let's not do this.
Jack : [a secondary bomb detonated when a passenger tried to get off] How are you doing? You all right?
Annie : Mm-mm.
Jack : What can I do?
Annie : When that bomb went off...
Jack : I know.
Annie : I thought that was it. I thought that was the bomb and I was dead. And then when I saw her body fall under the bus, it was like...
Jack : You were glad you were still alive.
Annie : Mm-hmm. I'm so sorry.
Jack : Don't be. You should be glad. We all are. It doesn't mean you don't care.
Annie : I know, but she was so scared.
Jack : She was scared. She was a nice lady who didn't deserve to get killed. But, Annie, if she'd gotten off, it would've killed us all.
Jack : Three triggers. One on the axle I can't really see, a cellular remote...
Annie : [nervously] Officer.
Jack : ...and a timer running off a wristwatch.
Harry : A watch? What kind of watch?
Jack : Gold. Gold band, fairly cheesy.
Annie : Officer.
[he gives her the "hold on" gesture]
Annie : Officer!
Jack : What's on your mind, Harry?
Annie : Shit, what do I do?
[grabbing the bus's internal PA microphone]
Annie : OFFICER!
