    FBI Director Womack: The gas, Dr. Goodspeed.

  • Chief Justice: [Talking privately, referring too releasing Mason to aid in the rescue of the hostages ] This is for the sake of national security

    FBI Director Womack: No its the sake of national security that got us here in the first place thirty three years ago. I knew some day this would come back to bite us, he does not exist

    Chief Justice: [referring to Mason] he does exist we just choose to forget him for thirty years we locked him up and threw away the key.

    FBI Director Womack: A lot of god damn good it did, he broke out of two maximum security prisons and if he hits the streets...

    Chief Justice: He's not going to hit the streets, thirty years ago he was a highly trained SAS operative, he was my agent for Christ sake. I have to get up three times a night to take a piss.

  • FBI Director Womack: What did Hummel mean by your "countermeasure," General?

    General Al Kramer: Standard poison is countered by napalm. It burns it up, consumes it upon impact. Now the problem with VX poison gas is that it's designed specifically to withstand napalm, which is where thermite plasma comes in. General Peterson?

    General Peterson: Thermite plasma incendiary systems can burn hot enough to consume VX, but they're still in the test phase, it's not operational. Hummel knows this. We are dealing with one smart son of a bitch.

    General Al Kramer: What's it going to take to equip a flight of F-18s with thermite plasma within the next thirty-six hours?

    General Peterson: An act of God.

    General Al Kramer: Excuse me?

    General Peterson: ...All right, we can try. But I strongly urge you to consider this as a secondary initiative.

  • FBI Director Womack: [showing Mason his arm in a sling] Cocksucker! If I had my way, you would be shipped back to Wolfburg and held in leg irons for the rest of your natural fucking life! You wrecked half the city!
