You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Then why you doing this?
Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Ah. That's what makes you that guy.
[twisting Matt's right hand up his back] Undo everything you just did!
[panicking] Ok. Ok. [after a moment's beat]
You know I could do it a lot faster if I have my right hand... I'm a righty! I need my right hand!
Dad! Stop it! I mean it!
Dad? You said your dad was dead!
What? You told this jerk-off I was dead? You actually said that?
I may have exaggerated a little bit.
[referring to Lucy] This bitch is a handful. [Lucy punches Russo, and he slaps her back]
[sarcastically to Russo] Are you gonna be all right? [to Lucy]
Hey, behave, or I will hurt you.
Oh, yeah? Let's step outside, just you and me. We'll see who hurts who.
[smiling] You really are his daughter.
Jesus Christ. It's a fire sale.
It's a fire sale.
Deputy Director Miguel Bowman:
Hey! We don't know that yet.
Yeah, it's a myth anyway. It can't be done.
Oh, it's a myth? Really? Please tell me she's only here for show and she's actually not in charge of anything.
Hey, what's a fire sale?
It's a three-step... it's a three-step systematic attack on the entire national infrastructure. Okay, step one: take out all the transportation. Step two: the financial base and telecoms. Step three: You get rid of all the utilities. Gas, water, electric, nuclear. Pretty much anything that's run by computers which... which today is almost everything. So that's why they call it a fire sale, because everything must go.
