[referring to the dog]
Duncan Vizla: What’s his name?
Ginny: He doesn’t have one.
Duncan Vizla: I like dogs with human names.
Ginny: Like what?
Duncan Vizla: Like Rusty.
Ginny: I don’t know anyone human named Rusty. Isn’t that a dog’s name?
Duncan Vizla: No, it’s human.


 

Vivian: You should just forget about him and move on.
Blut: Who can forget about the Black Kaiser? So very special.
Vivian: This is a bad idea.


 

Regina: We have some questions regarding the purchase of Damocles. Accounts show this year, your liabilities are at twenty-nine million, yet next year your liabilities are predicted to be paid off.
Blut: Correct.
Regina: In fact, we were surprised to see that they have become revenue.
Blut: Correct.
Regina: This seems to be done in order to inflate the value of your company.
Blut: We control the pensions of our former employees. They pay into our fund, we match their contributions, and manage the investments.
Regina: Please do explain, Mr Blut.
Blut: It’s our company policy that all our agents must retire at the age of fifty. We have a plethora of agents who have now reached this milestone. Their combined fund adds up to twenty-nine million dollars.
Regina: How do you consider this income?
Blut: If our agents were to die in the field of duty, or in an unspecified accident, the clause in their contract states that Damocles would be the beneficiary.
Regina: And you are assuming they will die?
Blut: I don’t assume they will die, I guarantee it.
Regina: If you can uphold that guarantee, we will move forward with this deal.


 

[on the phone]
Duncan Vizla: Vivian, somebody set me up over here, and you better pray you have nothing to do with it.


 

Vivian: You tried to kill the Black Kaiser with some low-rent Mexican clowns?
[sarcastically]
Vivian: Yeah, that plan worked well. I told you we should leave him the fuck alone!
Blut: You worry too much.


 

Vivian: You’re going to have to pay him everything now.
Blut: I don’t have to do shit until his birthday.
Vivian: Right. Pay him the second half of his fee, so we don’t have to look over our fucking shoulder for the rest of our lives.
Blut: Okay, do it.
Vivian: Smart move.


 

Store Owner: Did you happen to see anything peculiar out by your place over the past couple days? Perhaps some sort of supernatural event of someone dumping a truckload of logs?
Duncan Vizla: No.
[referring to Camille]
Store Owner: Oh. This young lady rents up where you are. You can probably see her cabin from your place across the lake. Maybe not, I don’t know. Seems her woodpile got filled up as if by magic!


 

Camille: I like it here.
Duncan Vizla: Me too.
Camille: It’s peaceful.
Duncan Vizla: Yeah.
Camille: It makes me peaceful.
Duncan Vizla: Me too.


 

Camille: You’re not from around here, are you?
Duncan Vizla: No.
Camille: Like Europe or something? You don’t have the same look as people around here either.
Duncan Vizla: What’s that?
Camille: Resigned to a slow death. No future. No money. No work.
Duncan Vizla: Well, I’m not working anymore. I’m retired.


 

Camille: What was your job?
Duncan Vizla: I was in the funeral business.
Camille: Where?
Duncan Vizla: Different places. Mostly overseas.
Camille: A traveling funeral business?
Duncan Vizla: Yeah, well, people die traveling in foreign countries. Americans. I go over and I take care of it.
Camille: Oh.


 

Camille: How many countries have you been to?
Duncan Vizla: Ninety-nine.
Camille: Most people don’t even know ninety-nine countries.
Duncan Vizla: Andorra. Albania. Austria. Australia. Antigua. Angola. Algeria. Afghanistan. Argentina. Azerbaijan. That was ten. And I’m only at the As, so, yeah.


 

[to the school kids]
Duncan Vizla: Right, last one.
School Kid: Do they speak American in England?
[we see flashback of Vizla choking a man to death in London]
Duncan Vizla: They don’t speak a lot.


 

[referring to Vizla, as he’s trying to kill him]
Facundo: Where the hell is he?
Sindy: Under the bed!


 

Duncan Vizla: Try not to be scared.
Hilde: Scared of what?
Duncan Vizla: You make mistakes when you’re afraid.
Hilde: No mistakes. Not today.


 

Vivian: What you should do is pay Duncan his fucking pension and enjoy the rest of your life.
Blut: No! This is personal.
Vivian: Stealing his pension, trying to kill him, twice, and kidnapping his cute little neighbor, that is personal.
Blut: I want him.


 

[Vizla groans in pain as Blut tortures him]
Blut: Sorry, did that hurt? The fun continues tomorrow, Mr. Vizla.


 

Jazmin: [to Vizla] I always knew you’d come back. I was just hoping it’d be for me, not the guns.


 

Vivian: Why the fuck are you doing this?
[referring to Camille]
Duncan Vizla: I don’t know. I like her.
Vivian: You like her?
Duncan Vizla: Why are you doing this?
Vivian: Please. This is our fucking job, remember?


 

Vivian: I thought you stopped smoking.
Duncan Vizla: Yeah. I figured it wouldn’t kill me.


 

[after Camille has revealed that she’s the child Vizla had spared on his botched assassination years ago]
Camille: Why didn’t you just shoot me?
Duncan Vizla: It was not supposed to happen. It was a mistake. I was given the wrong information…
Camille: Don’t talk. Just don’t talk. Every day, I pray that I’d died that night. Do you understand?
[Vizla nods]
Camille: No, do you understand?
Duncan Vizla: I’m sorry.


 

[referring to the money Vizla he had been putting in a trust fund for her]
Camille: Yeah, I didn’t learn about it until I turned twenty-one. Someone paid for my school. Someone was asking for salvation. I thought, “Follow the money,” as they say. It wasn’t as hard as I thought. It just took me a while to go there. Too afraid, I guess. I thought that if I saw you, I might get my family back when I closed my eyes. But that didn’t happen. I didn’t move on. I can’t! Do you understand?
Duncan Vizla: Yeah.


 

[pointing her gun at Vizla]
Camille: I don’t want to see you anymore. I want you to go away, and I want them to come back. Understand?
[Vizla nods]
Duncan Vizla: Close your mind, and pull the trigger.
[Camille sobs]
Duncan Vizla: It’s okay.
[Camille continues to sob as she puts her finger on the trigger and we hear a gunshot]


 

[last lines; after not going through with killing Vizla’s]
Camille: Do you know who wanted my father dead?
Duncan Vizla: No.
Camille: Well, can we find out?
Duncan Vizla: We can try.
