Robert Ritter: [to Kelly] You a comedian? Is that it?
Keith Webb: No, no, no. He’s just a bit of a smart-a**. No, that’s not right. I’m the smart-a**.
Rowdy King: Yeah, he’s more of a bada**.
Karen Greer: Ritter, explain the Russians! They weren’t just contractors.
John Kelly: They were Russian military. But you knew that, didn’t you?
John Kelly: I should’ve been fully briefed. The Russians killed one of my men.
Robert Ritter: Well, that’s the job, sweetheart.
John Kelly: How’s my girl?
Pam Kelly: Pregnant. You should try it.
John Kelly: Oh, actually, I was talking about my other girl.
Robert Ritter: What we know is three perps are dead, and Senior Chief Kelly is in critical condition, isn’t likely to pull through. Also killed was his wife. Kelly is the third member of the Special Operations unit to be attacked in the last twenty-four hours.
Robert Ritter: We have to be alert to the fact that these SEALs get themselves into all worlds of trouble. Drugs, arms, information. And keeping that in mind, we are taking every possible scenario into consideration.
Karen Greer: What the hell was that “every possible scenario” bulls**t in there? My men were not dirty, and you know it. What is the whole story? And don’t bulls**t me, Ritter. Today is not the day for it.
Robert Ritter: We’re looking into it.
Karen Greer: How come both times my world has gone to s**t, you’re standing in the middle of it?
Robert Ritter: Just good luck, I guess.
John Kelly: Know who’s behind it?
Karen Greer: I don’t know.
John Kelly: Pros. They were pros.
John Kelly: The guy they found in my bedroom, I didn’t kill him. He was already dead when I got there. One got away. All I need is a name. Give me a name.
Karen Greer: Even if I knew, you know I can’t do that.
Secretary Clay: So you are actually telling me the massacres of our men, and their families, were foreign attacks on US soil.
Robert Ritter: Russians. By proxy. None of them were connected to Russia in an official capacity.
Karen Greer: They’re calling it national security. They know it was Russian nationals, and it’s just a file on a classified server somewhere now. I’m probably going to go to jail for this. But hey. These are your toe tags. I got them from Secretary Clay.
John Kelly: Where’s the fourth?
Karen Greer: Your survivor’s a ghost.
John Kelly: Yeah, you remember me? Huh? Who killed my wife? Huh? Who was the fourth guy at my house? Give me a name. You give me a name.
Andre Vaseliev: Okay. I’ll give you a name. John Kelly. You are the problem, John. You’re supposed to be dead, so wherever you go, death will follow.
John Kelly: Yeah, I punctured your lung. My wife Pam, she drowned in her own blood. Now, you give me a name. Give me a name, and I’ll make it quick.
Andre Vaseliev: Viktor Rykov.
[Kelly shoots and kills him]
Robert Ritter: We didn’t leak the Russian thing. I mean, why would we? We were the ones trying to cover it up.
Robert Ritter: There is the obvious concern that this new development sends the wrong message to Moscow.
Secretary Clay: The wrong message? They hit us at home. Now they’re paying attention.
Robert Ritter: And Kelly has a big target on his back. Even in prison, he won’t be safe.
Secretary Clay: Some situations warrant thinking outside the box. Has it occurred to you that John Kelly perhaps has done something we can’t? He shook a tree that needed shaking. So let’s see who else falls out.
Karen Greer: You’re pretty messy right now. In more ways than one.
John Kelly: No, I’m not.
John Kelly: I spent half my life playing that game. I’m the one that went to hell and did their dirty work. We served a country that didn’t love us back. Because we believed in what it could be. We fought for what America could be. But they crossed a line. They brought their war into my house. They took my wife. And they took my baby girl before she got a chance to take a breath. That contract is broken. They’re going to play by my rules now. I’ll show them what a pawn can do to a king.
John Kelly: [referring to Clay] If he wants to know what I know, then you got to get me out of here, and fast. Why do you think I ended up in a prison full of Russian mob? Think about it. They can get to me in here.
Karen Greer: [over phone] John, it’s me. We’re getting you out of there. Follow the US Marshal. You can trust him. Unless you’re not done.
John Kelly: I’m done.
John Kelly: You know you messed up when they send a motorcade.
US Marshal Kevin Townsend: Buddy, they’re going to write songs about all the s**t you messed up.
John Kelly: [to Clay] I think I’ve shown that I’m willing to go further than anyone to get the job done. Consider what I did in Dulles as an audition. Sir, if this guy’s as bad as he says he is, then you need somebody like me. And there’s nobody like me.
Karen Greer: It is my opinion that Senior Chief Kelly is not in the right state of mind to be in the field right now.
Secretary Clay: With all due respect, I think he’s perfectly suited. He goes too. But after the mission, you will return to the penitentiary as a felon.
John Kelly: “I don’t think Senior Chief Kelly’s fit for the field.” Hmm? What was that? You don’t trust me no more?
Karen Greer: Like I said, you’re pretty messy right now.
John Kelly: Before I put a bullet in Vaseliev’s head, you know what he told me? That death follows me around. He was right.
Karen Greer: You’re not responsible for any of that.
John Kelly: But I am. It’s my family. I’m going to make it right. After that, my life doesn’t matter.
Karen Greer: This isn’t a revenge mission. This is an extraction. We are going to bring him to justice. Tell me that’s going to be enough for you.
John Kelly: I’m done making promises that I can’t keep.
Dallas: Bet everyone thinks we’re dead.
John Kelly: Well, that’s the one thing we got going for us.
Hatchet: Ricardo. That’s my real name. If we’re going to die together, may as well drop the code names, right?
