View Quote I am offering you a chance to do the right thing. Take it.
View Quote I've done some bad things in my life, Nicolai... Things I'm not proud of. I promised someone I love very much that I would never go back to being that person. But for you, I'm going to make an exception. You asked me what I saw when I looked at you. What do you see when you look at me?

View Quote Sometimes we make the wrong choices to get to the right place. I know a part of you died when Vivian did. But not the part she loved the most. Go be him.
View Quote The men I killed, your men, I gave them a chance, they made their decision. I'm giving you the opportunity to make yours.
View Quote You had a nice funeral, in case you were wondering.
You know, when they told Susan you were dead, she couldn't comprehend it. She said, "Oh, no. Not Robert." "And not from something as trivial as a car bomb." That you're alive … is a big relief. But it didn't come as a complete surprise to her. We used to talk about you over the years, and she said if anyone could have figured a way out, a way to walk away from it all for good, you know, like a real fresh start … it would have been … You.
View Quote Alina: I love being up at this hour.
Robert: Yeah?
Alina: Yeah. You know, everything's so dark. It makes everything seem possible again.
Robert: Yeah, me, I can't sleep at night.
Alina: Yeah, well, I get to hear your stories. What's your new one about?
Robert: It's about a guy who thinks he's a knight in shining armor. The only thing is he lives in a world where knights don't exist anymore.
Alina: Kind of sounds like my world.
View Quote Alina: You know, I see a lot of widowed guys. Something in your eyes. You know, it's not sad. It's just kind of... lost, you know? You always read books?
Robert: My wife did. She... She was working through the 100 Books Everybody Should Read. She made it to 97, so I figured I'd give it a shot. And one day we'd have something to talk about. We'd get together.
View Quote Ralphie: [asking about Robert's injured hand] What happened?

View Quote Robert McCall: [explaining the ending of The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway, which he was just finishing] Old man tied the fish to the side of the boat, had to row back to shore, fish bled in the water, sharks came and ate the whole fish till there was nothing left.
Teri/Alina: That's just kind of a waste, isn't it?
Robert McCall: Depends upon how you look at it. The old man met his adversary when he thought that part of his life was over. He saw himself in the fish. Came to... Came to respect it the more it fought.
Teri/Alina: Why didn't he just let the fish go?
Robert McCall: The old man's gotta be the old man. Fish gotta be the fish. Got to be who you are in this world, no matter what.

Teri/Alina: You look like a Robert. Robert reads books like this and Bob watches TV... My real name's Alina.
Robert: What happened to your face?
Alina: Someone stupid. [after an uncomfortable pause, she get's out a CD of her singing] Okay, it's not professional. Just tell me what you think, okay?
Robert: Wow. Alina the singer.
Alina: You and I know what I really am.
Robert: I think you can be anything you wanna be.
Alina: Maybe in your world, Robert. Doesn't happen that way in mine.
Robert: Change your world.
