“Let’s face it, half the things we do are window dressing. Take running alongside that limousine: it’d take an anti-tank missile to put a dent in that damn thing. There we are, out for show, trying to make the President look more presidential.” – Frank Horrigan

“Do you have what it takes to take a bullet, or is life too precious?” – Mitch Leary
“Well, I’ll be thinkin’ about that when I’m pissin’ on your grave.” – Frank Horrigan

“What are you looking at?” – Lilly Raines
“I was just wondering where you hide your firearm. Don’t tell me, let me guess.” – Frank Horrigan
