  • Quotes

    • Federal Marshal Louis Coleman: I told you McDeere was onto something. I asked for your help, you looked the other way.
      F.B.I. Special Agent Wayne Tarrance: Hey, I don't help civilians with cases. I'm an F.B.I. agent, I run investigations my way, not at the direction of Mitch McDeere or anyone else.
      Coleman: You screwed up and now he can't you anything because they took his wife.
      Tarrance: I told you I will handle it.
      Coleman: See you handle it. You handling it is what got me shot.
      Tarrance: Let me tell you something. McDeere got you shot. He should have come in, he should have told us everything but instead he stayed out there trying to get the evidence himself because he doesn't trust Feds. Well I am done playing his games.
      Coleman: What, what are you going to do? You don't even know where to find him.
      Tarrance: We found Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. Mitch McDeere in D.C., I like our chances.

    • Kevin Stack: McDeere's wife doesn't know where the drive is.
      Alex Clark: How do you know?
      Kevin Stack: Let's just say we asked her in a way that encouraged the truth, a way that's proven reliable. McDeere's working with a guy named Dimitry, a hacker who's trying to break the encryption but Abby doesn't know where.
      Alex Clark: You tortured her.
      Kevin Stack: I thought you lawyers were taught not to ask questions you don't want answers to.

    • Kevin Stack: Here's what I've learned: if you think something, the opposite must be true.
