Sam: There’s a group of men called The Firm. They’ve been running things for a long, long time. And when they need someone to clean up their mess, they send me.
Young Sam: You’re bleeding.
Scarlet: Just another day at the office.
Young Sam: What’s going on?
Scarlet: It’s complicated.
Young Sam: Tell me. I’m not a kid any more.
Scarlet: No, you’re not.
Lead Russian Thug: Hello, little girl.
Young Sam: Mommy says I’m not allowed to talk to strangers.
Lead Russian Thug: This “Mommy” looks a lot like you. Only bigger and more stabby. Got my father’s blood all over her.
Young Sam: I don’t like you.
Scarlet: Close your eyes, baby girl.
[kills the Russian thug]
Nathan: You hurt?
Sam: Just another day at the office.
Nathan: Wow, you sound just like your mother.
Sam: I don’t have a mother.
Nathan: Well, you sure have her temper.
Nathan: Oh, for Christ’s sake, child. This was supposed to be low profile gig, not a bloody massacre.
Sam: Well, next time, I’ll just let them shoot me.
Nathan: Next time, just do what you’re told. Remember who you’re working for.
Nathan: Your talents are needed, pronto. Somebody stole from us.
Sam: Who’s crazy enough to steal from The Firm?
Nathan: Somebody who doesn’t know who we really are.
Madeleine: Hello, dear. What can I do for you?
Sam: [places her bag of weapons on the counter] I need to exchange some books.
Madeleine: Well, that’s nice. Not a lot of people your age read nowadays.
Madeleine: What kind of books are you interested in?
Sam: Mostly smaller ones. A few heavies.
Madeleine: Well, you won’t find them there. Those are our children’s sections. The Enchanted Forest, and The Never-Ending Ocean.
Sam: They sound like fun.
Madeleine: Have we met before? You seem so familiar.
Sam: I’m embarrassed to say it’s been a while since I visited a library.
Madeleine: Well, that’s no way to live, dear. Let’s get you into a good book.
Madeleine: Anna May, this lovely young lady wants to open an account with us.
Anna May: Well, Madeleine should have told you that we don’t accept new readers without a reference.
Madeleine: Madeleine had a hunch.
Anna May: Fudge your hunches, if you pardon my French.
Madeleine: Technically not French.
Anna May: Always literal.
Madeleine: Of course I’m literary. I’m a librarian.
Anna May: Madeleine thinks this girl needs to do some reading.
Madeleine: Well, I told you I had a hunch. There’s something very familiar about her.
Anna May: Hunch, smunch. I, on the other hand, think we should dispose of the body, and then have a long talk about our onboarding protocols.
Sam: You know I can hear you, right?
Anna May: Hush, girl. Don’t be rude.
Florence: [referring to Scarlet] How is your mother?
Sam: Haven’t seen her in fifteen years.
Anna May: Well, that’s something we both have in common.
Florence: [as they inspect Sam’s weapons] Nice collection. And you take good care of them. Let me guess. You’re the sentimental type. Ro-man-tique.
Sam: Sentimental types don’t last long doing this. So, no. I don’t think I’m the sentimental type.
Anna May: So, you’re an idealist.
Sam: Nope. Maybe I don’t have a type.
Anna May: Everybody has a type.
Sam: Maybe I’m the professional type?
Anna May: Ah. Old school. “No women, no children” type.
Sam: Women are fair game.
Florence: Gender equality. Very progressive.
Madeleine: She’s a feminist.
Anna May: You’ll need a Jane Austen.
Madeleine: A Charlotte Brontë.
Florence: And a Virginia Woolf.
Madeleine: Oh, and an Agatha Christie. For reading.
Dr. Ricky: Hey. Haven’t seen you in a while. And you brought a new friend. What the hell happened?
Sam: I happened.
Dr. Ricky: Ooh. He’s not going anywhere. Not in ten minutes. Maybe not ever.
Sam: So what can we do?
Dr. Ricky: “We”? Well, you can start by not shooting people.
Nathan: Is it done?
Sam: There’s a change of plan.
Nathan: What are you talking about? What does that mean?
Sam: They kidnapped his little girl. That’s why he stole the money.
Nathan: Okay. Listen to me, Sam. If you screw this one up, they will give the kill order. And I won’t be able to stop them.
Sam: She’s just a little girl. I can’t leave her to die. I’m sorry.
Nathan: Don’t you dare hang up on me, young lady.
Sam: I’m sorry.
Nathan: Don’t you… F***.
Nathan: Try to reason with her. Bring back the money. Wait. Now, when I say “reason with her”, I mean no guns, no knives. She comes back alive. Understood?
Crow, Shocker, Yankee: Yeah.
Nathan: And for God’s sake, be careful. Remember who you’re dealing with.
Yankee: Nathan’s worried about you. Doesn’t want you to do anything stupid. So why don’t you hand over the suitcase, and nobody gets hurt.
Sam: Counter-offer. Go back to Nathan, tell him you tried, but I roughed you up. Ooh. You can beat each other up for added realism.
Sam: No guns today?
Nathan: Nathan doesn’t want you hurt. Not too badly, anyway.
Sam: Oh, that is so sweet. I’ll try not to kill you too.
Sam: Are you bleeding?
Sam: Bleeding on the inside?
Emily: How can you tell?
Sam: It’s inside. You’re probably fine. Let’s go.
Dr. Ricky: So, who f***ed you up like this?
Shocker: A girl.
Dr. Ricky: So a girl made you look like you’re from The Walking Dead?
Crow: I’ve never felt pain like this before, doc.
Yankee: She got us good, doc. I don’t think I’ll ever walk again.
Dr. Ricky: Well, there must be an epidemic, because I got a guy in the next room who’s got similar symptoms.
Yankee: What do you mean?
Dr. Ricky: I mean, a girl f***ed him up too.
Emily: You’re bleeding.
Sam: It’s just a scratch.
Emily: It can get infected. Worms will get in there and lay eggs. And then they’ll have to cut your arm off.
Sam: That’s what they teach you in school these days?
Emily: Discovery Channel.
