    • Hooker: (parting words of wisdom to Lynn Paterno) You know it's a battle to live in peace. Don't you ever surrender.

    • Mitoski: (on Hooker) I've spent 30 years in the military judging every kind of man. That's a dangerous one. He may be a cop. But either way after tonight this place won't be safe. Get your gear together. We're moving out of here and we won't be back.

    • Corrigan: What did you find out about Lynn Paterno? Hooker: That sometimes, water is thicker than blood.
