    • Phillip: You've been following me since I stepped outside. Now I've circled around, you don't have a support team, so whoever you are, you're on your own, right. You have 60 seconds to tell me who you are and what your want or I will snap your neck and I will move on with my day.

    • Amador: He walked into a hospital with no ID, no wallet and no keys in his pocket. Fit, Healthy...
      Stan: Except for the gaping stab wound in his kidney.
      Agent Gadd: Except for that.

    • Nina: Nobody bothers with zavarka here.
      Vasili: That's why their tea tastes like a warm glass of dirt.

    • Vasili: Ninotchka, shortcuts are the root of all evil.

    • Elizabeth: (To Claudia) I'm sorry I didn't kill you. That's my apology.

    • Nina: Just think how you would feel looking at me dead one day.

    • Stan: Nothing beats American fast food. It's probably filled with all sort of nasty shit that'll kill you, but man, it sure tastes good.

    • Amador: I'm as unencumbered as beds bugs in a flop house.
