Yuri Orlov: Beware of the Dog? You don't have a dog. Are you trying to scare people?
Vitaly Orlov: No, it's to scare me. Remind me to be aware of the dog in me. The dog that wants to **** everything that moves, wants to fight and kill weaker dogs. I guess it's to remind me to be more human.
Yuri Orlov: Isn't being a dog part of being human? What if that's the best part of you, the dog part? What if you're really just a two-legged dog?
Vitaly Orlov: You need to see somebody.



Baptiste Jr.: Can you bring me the gun of Rambo?

Baptiste Jr.: I've only seen Part One.
Yuri: The M-60. Would you like the armor piercing bullets?
Baptiste Jr.: Please.

Of all the weapons in the vast soviet arsenal nothing was more profitable than Avtomat Kalashnikova model of 1947, more commonly known as the AK-47, or Kalashnikov. It's the worlds most popular assault rifle, a weapon all fighters love. An elegantly simple nine pound amalgamation of forged steel and plywood, it doesn't break, jam, or overheat. It will fire whether it's covered in mud or filled with sand. It's so easy even a child could use it, and they do. The Soviets put the gun on a coin. Mozambique put it on their flag. Since the end of the Cold War, the Kalashnikov has become the Russian people's greatest export. After that comes vodka, caviar, and suicidal novelists. One thing is for sure, no one was lining up to buy their cars.

The second rule of gun-running is always ensure you have a foolproof way of getting paid, preferably in advance, preferably to an offshore account.

I sell guns to every army but the Salvation Army.

I even shipped cargo to Afghanistan when they were fighting my fellow Soviets. I never sold to Osama Bin Laden. Not on any moral grounds, but because back then he was always bouncing cheques.

There are two tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want. The other is getting it.

Where there's a will, there's a weapon.

I sell to leftists, and rightists. I sell to pacifists, but they're not the most regular customers.

The problem with dating dream girls is that they have a tendency to become real.

Funny how you always resort to your native tongue in times of anger. And in times of ecstasy.
