Sitater:
Leary: do you have what it takes to take a bullet or is life too precious? Frank: well I'll be thinkin' about that when I'm pissin' on your grave.

Al D'Andrea: You okay? Frank Horrigan: No, I'm not okay. I'm sick, I'm tired, and I'm armed too, so be careful. Al D'Andrea: You're also maybe a genius. Frank Horrigan: Huh - not to be recognized in this lifetime.

Mitch Leary: There's no cause left worth fighting for, Frank. All we have is the game. I'm on offense, you're on defense. Frank Horrigan: Well, when do we start playing the game? Mitch Leary: The clock's ticking, Frank.

Leary: The irony is so thick you could choke on it. Horrigan: There's no fuckin' irony. Leary: Think about it Frank. The same government that trained me to kill trained you to protect. And now you're trying to kill me while up on that rooftop I protected you.

Mitch Leary: Do you want to save me, Frank? Frank Horrigan: No, but it's my job.

Mitch Leary: I have a rendezvous with death, and so does the President, and so do you if you get too close. Frank Horrigan: You have a rendezvous with my ass, motherfucker!

Sam Campagna: Frank, The President sent his limo for you. Lilly Raines: Well, that's the least he could do. Frank Horrigan: Good, I love public transportation.
