  • Quotes

    • Ilsa: Mr. Guerrero, I'm rather stunned that you're here.
      Guerrero: I'm not reading anything, I'm not signing anything. If this meeting takes more than five minutes, you and I got an issue. I got someone waiting in the car. In the trunk.

    • Chance: Did you come here to see me or because you're in trouble?
      Maria: Because I'm in trouble. I always want to see you.

    • Maria: How come your name is Guerrero and you don't speak Spanish?
      Guerrero: None of your business. I don't talk about my private life. Ever.
      Maria: I didn't realize your name was so private.

    • Chance: Listen, I know you warned me.
      Guerrero: We all have our blind spots, bro. There's this girl in Osaka. Enough said.

    • Guerrero: All right, I'll stay here and reach out to the Lopez brothers. Propose the trade.
      Chance: You sure?
      Guerrero: Yeah, I got a history with them. And I'm comfortable in the world of violently insane.

    • Winston: Promise me one thing. If this is it, if this is really the end... I get to use the rocket launcher.

    • Guerrero: Chance will think of something.
      Diego Garcia: Well, I hope he's very clever.
      Guerrero: More importantly, he's very crazy.

    • Maria: I need you to know this just in case things don't go according to plan.
      Chance: Don't worry. Things never go according to plan.

    • Winston: What did you do?
      Chance: We don't have enough oxygen to go back to San Francisco.
      Winston: Are you crazy or something?!
      Chance: I've been hearing that.
      Winston: You know, just between us, you ought to admit one thing. Things have gotten a little out of hand.
      Chance: Yeah.

    • Maria: I'm going to miss you, Chance.
      Chance: Could've told you that.

  • Allusions

    • Title:
      Referencing the song "Maria" from the 1959 Rogers & Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music. Also known as "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?", the song concerns Sister Maria, who the other nuns dislike because she doesn't act like a "real" nun.
