Viggo Tarasov Quotes in John Wick (2014)


Viggo Tarasov Quotes:

  • Viggo Tarasov: I heard you struck my son.

    Aurelio: Yes, sir, I did.

    Viggo Tarasov: And may I ask why?

    Aurelio: Yeah, well, because he stole John Wick's car, sir, and, uh, killed his dog.

    Viggo Tarasov: [pause] Oh.

  • Viggo Tarasov: It's not what you did, son, that angers me so. It's who you did it to.

    Iosef Tarasov: Who? That fucking nobody?

    Viggo Tarasov: That "fuckin' nobody"... is John Wick. He once was an associate of ours. They call him "Baba Yaga."

    Iosef Tarasov: The Boogeyman?

    Viggo Tarasov: Well John wasn't exactly the Boogeyman. He was the one you sent to kill the fucking Boogeyman.

    Iosef Tarasov: [stunned] Oh.

    Viggo Tarasov: John is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will... something you know very little about. I once saw him kill three men in a bar... with a pencil, with a fucking pencil. Then suddenly one day he asked to leave. It's over a woman, of course. So I made a deal with him. I gave him an impossible task. A job no one could have pulled off. The bodies he buried that day laid the foundation of what we are now. And then my son, a few days after his wife died, you steal his car and kill his fucking dog.

    Iosef Tarasov: Father, I can make this right.

    Viggo Tarasov: Oh? How do you plan that?

    Iosef Tarasov: By finishing what I started.

    Viggo Tarasov: [irritated, turning to Avi] What the... did he hear a fuckin' word I said?

    Iosef Tarasov: [in Russian] Dad, I can do this! Please!

    Viggo Tarasov: [pulls Iosef close, talks into his ear] Iosef, Iosef! Listen! Huh? John will come for you, and you will do nothing because you can do nothing, so get the fuck out of my sight!

  • John Wick: Viggo.

    Viggo Tarasov: Yeah?

    John Wick: When Helen died, I lost everything. Until that dog arrived on my doorstep... A final gift from my wife... In that moment, I received some semblance of hope... an opportunity to grieve unalone... And your son... took that from me.

    Viggo Tarasov: Oh, God.

    John Wick: Stole that from me... *Killed that from me*! People keep asking if I'm back and I haven't really had an answer. But now, yeah, I'm thinkin' I'm back. So you can either hand over your son or you can die screaming alongside him!

  • Viggo Tarasov: What happened, John?... We were professionals... Civilized.

    John Wick: Do I look civilized to you?

  • Viggo Tarasov: They know you're coming.

    John Wick: Of course... But it won't matter.

  • Viggo Tarasov: [calling John Wick on the telephone] Hello, John.

    [John says nothing]

    Viggo Tarasov: I heard about your wife, and I'm sorry. My condolences. It's, uh, seems to be fate, or happenstance, or just bad fuckin' luck caused our paths to cross once again.

    [John says nothing]

    Viggo Tarasov: John?

    [John says nothing]

    Viggo Tarasov: Let us not resort to our baser instincts and handle this like civilized men to move on...

    [John hangs up mid-sentence; Viggo puts down his phone in a resigned manner]

    Avi: What'd he say?

    Viggo Tarasov: [pause] Enough.

    Avi: [quietly] Oh, God.

    Viggo Tarasov: Task your crew.

    Avi: H-how, how many?

    Viggo Tarasov: How many do you have?

  • Viggo Tarasov: John is a man of focus, commitment, sheer will, something you know very little about.

  • Viggo Tarasov: People don't change. You know that. Times, they do.

  • Viggo Tarasov: [Viggo is dying] Be seeing you, John

    John Wick: Yeah... Be seeing you.

  • Viggo Tarasov: I'll say this, John. They sure as fuck broke the mold with you.
