Sicario (2015) Poster


Josh Brolin: Matt Graver



  • Matt : Medellin refers to a time when one group controlled every aspect of the drug trade, providing a measure of order that we could control. And until somebody finds a way to convince 20% of the population to stop snorting and smoking that shit, order's the best we can hope for. And what you saw up there, was Alejandro working toward returning that order.

    Kate Macer : Alejandro works for the fucking Colombian Cartel.

    Matt : He works for the competition. Alejandro works for anyone who will point him toward the people who made him. Us. Them. Anyone who will turn him loose. So, he can get the person that cut off his wife's head, and threw his daughter into a vat of acid. Yeah. That's what we're dealing with.

  • Kate Macer : You used me as bait.

    Matt : Nah, you used yourself as bait.

  • Kate Macer : [after an illegal gun battle]  What am I doing here?

    Matt : What you're doing here is you're giving us the opportunity to shake the tree and create chaos. That's what this is! In the meantime, just sponge everything up you see. Learn! That's why you're here.

  • Kate Macer : Are we going to Tucson?

    Matt : Yeah, you gotta learn how to sleep on a plane. They let me on the base when you need a ride, don't they?

    Reggie Wayne : [to Kate as they approach]  You okay?

    Matt : She's fine.

    Reggie Wayne : I didn't ask you.

    Matt : And yet I answered...

  • Kate Macer : What's our objective?

    Matt : [smiles]  To dramatically overreact.

  • Matt : [after interrogating Ted]  You know what the beauty is of you being so beat to a pulp? 'Cause no one's gonna notice a few more scratches.

  • Matt : You saw things you shouldn't have seen.

  • Matt : Hey, Kate, you got any friends at Phoenix SWAT?

    Kate Macer : Uh, yeah, we use 'em in breaches all the time.

    Matt : Good, 'cause we're gonna need their help.

    Kate Macer : What for?

    Matt : We are gonna fuck with Manuel Diaz's wallet.

  • Reggie Wayne : There's "in the dark" and there's the way you're treating us. I want to know the objective or I walk, period.

    Matt : Then go. I didn't ask you to be here.

    [pointing to Kate] 

    Matt : She did.

    Kate Macer : I walk, too.

    Matt : What do you wanna know?

    Reggie Wayne : Everything.

    Matt : Fuckin' lawyers. All right. Guillermo told us about a tunnel east of Nogales, near Sasabe. Now we're tryin' to find out what areas near there migrants avoid so we can find the tunnel. That better?

    Reggie Wayne : And Guillermo is...

    Kate Macer : And Guillermo, he just told you where the drug tunnel is? He just told you?

    Matt : Guillermo didn't have any other options. We send him back across the border, he's a dead man. Now he gets to spend the next 30 years in an American prison in relative safety.

    Reggie Wayne : Just tell us the truth, man.

    Matt : We are gonna make enough noise that Manuel Diaz is called back to Mexico to see his boss. That's the truth.

    Reggie Wayne : And then?

    Matt : And then we know where his boss is.

  • Kate Macer : Is he CIA? Are you?

    Matt : He's a DOD advisor, just like me.

    Kate Macer : No, he's not.

    Matt : Just pay attention to Alejandro, and if he says to do something, just do it.

    Kate Macer : I'm not authorized to follow orders from Alejandro! Especially in Mexico!

    Matt : Fine. Then stay here. But you don't want to, do you?

    Kate Macer : I just wanna know what I'm getting into.

    Matt : Kate, you volunteered to get on this train because you... you know you're doing nothing in Phoenix. Yeah, you're just sweeping up a fucking mess. In six months, every single house you raid will be rigged with explosives. Do you want to find the guys responsible? Yes or no?

    Kate Macer : [quietly]  Yes.

    Matt : Yes?

    Kate Macer : [louder]  Yes!

    Matt : This is where we start.

  • Reggie Wayne : Those are Special Ops. Are we going in on this?

    Matt : Nah. You guys aren't really dressed for it.

    Reggie Wayne : That why you didn't fuckin' tell us?

    Matt : Yeah, well, you two went cryin' to Daddy yesterday, and we don't want Daddy to know everything.

    Kate Macer : Oh, give me a fucking break.

    Matt : All right, we'll get you some extra gear.

    Kate Macer : We have tac gear in the car.

    Matt : All right. Good. You guys will hang back when we get there, okay?

    Kate Macer : Then why are we going?

    Matt : 'Cause CIA can't operate within U.S. borders without a domestic agency attached. I told you you'd be useful.

    Kate Macer : So, that's it. That's why I'm here.

    Matt : Yeah, that's it. That's why you're here. Hey, we find any drugs, you guys get to confiscate them. It's gonna be a big day.

    Kate Macer : Un-fuckin' real!

  • Dave Jennings : Kate, you must volunteer for an inter-agency task force. Think very hard before you respond. You wanna be a part of this?

    Kate Macer : Do we get an opportunity at the men responsible for today?

    Matt : The men who were really responsible for today, yeah.

    Kate Macer : I'll volunteer.

  • Matt : You didn't think we'd get you here, did you?

    Guillermo : No hablo Ingles.

    Matt : No hablo Ingles? I love it when they "no hablo Ingles." You know, I brought an old buddy of yours. I bet you hablo to him.

  • Matt : [after a gunfight with Mexican cartel soldiers]  Got a little nutty, huh?

    Kate Macer : Nutty? Yeah, yeah, that was fucking illegal. You wanna start a war? You're a fucking spook! And-and him! I mean, who the fuck is that?

    Matt : Told you, you could stay here.

    Kate Macer : Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, you just spray bullets at... and, yeah, sure, there's just fucking civilians everywhere. I'm not a soldier! This is not what I do!

    Matt : Whoa, whoa, whoa. Look, don't sell yourself short, all right? The reason Reggie's home is I know he wasn't ready for this. But he better get ready real quick because this is the future, Kate! Juarez is what happens when they dig in.

  • Burnett : How familiar are you with Manuel Diaz's operation?

    Kate Macer : His company, Sun Oasis, has 80 or so foreclosure properties. He has other legitimate businesses. Um... but he's rumored to be linked with one of the Mexican cartels.

    Burnett : Manuel Diaz works for the Sonora Cartel. He's most likely their senior member in the United States.

    Matt : What do you know about his brother?

    Kate Macer : I wasn't aware he had one.

    Matt : Guillermo. His brother's name is Guillermo. Do you know anything about his cousin?

    Kate Macer : I didn't know he had one of those, either. None of that is in his file.

    Burnett : His cousin is Fausto Alarcon.

    Kate Macer : I don't know who that is.

    Matt : No one does. He's off the grid.

    Burnett : He's number three in the Sonora Cartel.

    Kate Macer : This is not my department, sir. This is...

    Burnett : Like I said, Agent Macer doesn't work narcotics. She runs a kidnap response team.

    Matt : Are you married?

    Kate Macer : Am I married?

    Matt : Do you have a husband?

    Kate Macer : Divorced.

    Matt : Kids?

    Kate Macer : No. Anything else?

    Phil Coopers : No. Thanks, Kate. If you could wait outside, please.

  • Dave Jennings : She's been leading our kidnap response team for three years. We put her through the grinder since she got here, and she hasn't blinked. She's in the front line. Nobody's gonna be happier than Kate to see these guys go down.

    Burnett : So, she's a thumper.

    Dave Jennings : Today was her fifth O.I.S.

    Matt : Five and 0, not bad for a rookie. She never worked cases?

    Dave Jennings : Been kicking doors since day one.

    Matt : I like her already. What about the partner? He seen any action?

    Phil Coopers : He's only been with us 18 months.

    Matt : What's his background?

    Dave Jennings : He's a sharp kid. ROTC scholarship to Maryland, did a tour in Iraq, got his law degree from UNC. He's green, but he's good.

    Matt : No lawyers on this train. Just give me the girl.

  • Dave Jennings : DOJ wants advisors that focus on cartels involved in pursuing Mr. Diaz. This is Matt Graver. He'll be leading the team.

    Kate Macer : Isn't this Phoenix Homicide now?

    Matt : No, we're expanding the scope of the investigation a bit.

    Phil Coopers : You'll act as a liaison.

    Kate Macer : What does that mean?

    Dave Jennings : They need an agent with tactical experience, like you.

    Burnett : State Department is pulling an agent from the field that specializes in responding to escalated cartel activity. You'll be part of the team. You'll meet up with them at Luke, uh, tomorrow?

    Matt : Day after. Early.

    Kate Macer : Air Force Base?

    Matt : Yeah, we're gonna go see Guillermo.

    Kate Macer : Diaz's brother?

    Matt : That's the one.
