Bryan: Wake up! I need you to be focused!
[stabs Marko in the legs with metal rods]
Bryan: Are you focused yet?

[after electrocuting Marko] You either give me what I need or this switch will stay on until they turn the power off for lack of payment on the bill.

[after shooting Jean Claude's wife in the arm] It's a flesh wound. But if you don't get me what I need, the last thing you'll see before I make your children orphans is the bullet I put between her eyes.

[to Marko] You don't remember me? We spoke on the phone two days ago. I told you I would find you.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

Kim: You don't have to worry.
Bryan: That's like telling water not to be wet, sweetie.

Lenore: I don't get you.
Bryan: What?
Lenore: You sacrificed our marriage to the service of the country, you've made a mess of your life in the service of your country; can't you sacrifice a little one time for your own daughter?
Bryan: I would sacrifice anything for her.

Bryan: I don't think a seventeen-year-old should be traveling alone.
Kim: I'm not gonna be alone.
Bryan: Two seventeen-year-olds.
Kim: Amanda's nineteen!
Bryan: How about this? How about if I go along? You won't even know I'm there. I'm very good at being invisible.
Lenore: As you so amply demonstrated for the rest of her life.

Bryan: I have a daughter who wants to be a singer. I was wondering if you have any tips for her.
Diva: Yeah, I do. Tell her pick another career.
