James Bonomo: Are we fucking Vikings?
James Bonomo: Are we gonna fight or are you planning on boring me to death?
James Bonomo: [Keegan has challenged him to an axe fight] What are we, fuckin' Vikings?
[first lines]
James Bonomo: The guy I just saved is a cop. That's not the usual way I do things, but sometimes you gotta abandon your principles and do what's right.
James Bonomo: Are you a cop or shrink?
James Bonomo: Guns don't kill people. Bullets do.
Marcus Baptiste: [Being interrogated] Hey, look, there's nothing you can do to me I haven't already done to myself for fun.
James Bonomo: You had me at 'fuck you'.
Taylor Kwon: I was born in Florida.
James Bonomo: You're probably wondering why I happen to have my safehouse all wired up.
Taylor Kwon: Not really. Like most criminals, you have a paranoid personality.
James Bonomo: I'm a people person.
Robert Nkomo Morel: When I want your opinion, I will buy you a brain.
James Bonomo: I take out the trash!
Taylor Kwon: [to James after he shot Marcus] You don't just kill a guy like that!
Lisa Bonomo: [to her father about being a gun-for-hire] You're getting out of that business.
James Bonomo: I know. I've heard this speech before. We should've taken him in!
Taylor Kwon: [to James] I want the guys who took your daughter.
Marcus Baptiste: [to Taylor and James about Keegan] You're dealing with an ex-mercenary! He's gonna punch your ticket and I'm gonna watch!
James Bonomo: I got some rules... no women... no children.
Keegan: [to Morel about James] Four of our operatives got killed by this guy last night.
Keegan: [to James] You and me... we got a little unfinished business to take care of.
James Bonomo: [upon meeting Taylor] I thought I smelled a cop.
Taylor Kwon: [after they killed two men] They're cops.
James Bonomo: Dead cops.
James Bonomo: Bang. Down. Owned.
Lisa Bonomo: You gave me your word.
Robert Nkomo Morel: In classical literature... the hero dies.
