Frank Moses[edit]

  • Open the pig!
  • Keep your dress on!
  • [to Cooper] If anything happens to Sarah, I will rip everything you love out of your life and then I'll kill you.

Marvin Boggs[edit]

  • I never thought I'd say this again...I am getting the pig!!
  • [After blowing up an assassin who insulted him] "Old man" my ass!
  • Moldova sucks!
  • [as he and Frank run from Moldovan Ground Forces] I told you something bad was going to happen!

Joe Matheson[edit]

  • [about identifying the envelope of fingers] This used to be a gentleman's game.

Sarah Ross[edit]

  • The General has dropped his contact lens. Perhaps you'd like to help us?
  • [waking up in New York, to Frank] Wow, I really hate you right now.


  • I love it here. I love the baking, I love the flower arranging. I like the routine. …Well, I do get a bit restless sometimes. I take the odd contract on the side.
  • Tell Marvin to stand down before he hurts himself.

William Cooper[edit]

  • How's retirement, Frank?
  • Bad move, Grandpa!

Ivan Simonov[edit]

  • I miss the old days. I haven't killed anyone in years.
  • [to Frank] I think you are not here for the vodka.
  • [showing Frank the scars from being shot] This was done to me by the love of my life. Now she sits outside my house drinking vodka. When I woke alive, I knew she still loved me. Otherwise it would have been the head. It was big risk for her, but one does crazy things for love.


Cynthia Wilkes: This is gonna happen either way.
Alexander Dunning: You don't have people killed. I have people killed. I'm the bad guy, remember?


Frank: [holding Cooper to the desk] Kordeski trained you?
Cooper: Yeah?
Frank: I trained Kordeski! [dislocates his shoulder]

Marvin: [after the shootout in the kitchen] I remember the Secret Service being tougher.
Victoria: Me too.

Joe: Sarah, this is Victoria. Best wet work asset in the business and a true artist with an RPN.
Sarah: Oh wow. Um…what's that?
Victoria: [smiling sweetly] I kill people, dear.

Victoria: Oh, Francis. You're such a romantic.
Frank: What?
Victoria: You're all hard on the outside, but inside you're gooey…gooey.

Business Woman Assassin: [after firing on the group] That's right, old man!
Marvin: "Old man"?
Frank: No respect.
Marvin: Can I kill her now?!?

Marvin: Do you know what's wrong with this country?
Sarah: They're all trying to kill us?
Marvin: Exactly!

Sarah: Is that my bag?
Frank: Yeah.
Sarah: [looking around a bit] D-d-did you vacuum?
Frank: A little, yeah. It was messy.

Frank: I was just hoping you'd be a little more understanding of the situation.
Sarah: [sarcastically] I was hoping not to get kidnapped. Or drugged. I was hoping you'd have hair. So it looks like none of our dreams are coming true at the moment.

Joe: I'm 80 years old. I got stage 4 liver cancer. What the hell can they do to me?
Frank: They can still shoot you.
Joe: Well…I never thought this would happen to me.
Frank: What?
Joe: Getting old. Well I mean, Vietnam, Afghanistan. The Green Springs Rest Home? Go figure!

[after Frank introduces his girlfriend to his…eccentric CIA buddy]
Sarah: Wow, this guy's insane.
Frank: He believes he was the subject of a government mind-control experiment. As it turns out, he really was given daily doses of LSD for eleven years.
Sarah: Well, in that case, he looks great.
Frank: Fantastic.
Sarah: Yeah.

Sarah: [about them sneaking into the CIA] What do you suppose the punishment is for what we're doing here?
Frank: Death. [pause] Maybe life in prison.
Sarah: [happily] Awesome!

[Cooper visits a secret CIA archive to learn about Frank]
Henry, The Records Keeper: Frank Moses was one of the most effective black-ops agents we've ever had. He retired drug lords, terrorists…hell, he toppled governments. Yeah. He was truly gifted.
Cooper: Why was he retired?
Henry: He got old. Then some government thumb-sucker came along and tagged him RED.
Cooper: "Red"?
Henry: Yeah. RED, R-E-D. "Retired, Extremely Dangerous."

Frank: It's not that bad. People get shot all the time.
Sarah: No, they don't! They get paper cuts!
Marvin: I mostly get shot.

Victoria: In all the years I've known Francis, I've never seen him like this. So if you break his heart, I will kill you. And bury your body in the woods.
Sarah: Wow. Okay.

Ivan: I owe you for killing Igor.
Frank: Igor the Butcher.
Ivan: He was a good asset.
Frank: He was a pig.
Ivan: He was my cousin.
Frank: Sorry.
Ivan: [pours him and Frank shots of vodka] To Igor the Butcher. [They clink their glasses]
Frank: [Just as Ivan drinks his shot] He's not dead. [Ivan nearly chokes as Frank finishes his shot] I flipped him.
Ivan: No!
Frank: He owns a string of 7-Elevens in Orange County.
Ivan: What!
Frank: He weighs 500 lb.
Ivan: Ah! [He covers his mouth as both he and Frank start laughing]

Victoria: I was in love with an agent once.
Sarah: What happened?
Victoria: Well, I was with MI6, and the relationship wasn't…sanctioned. So when it came to light, my loyalty was questioned, and I was ordered to kill him. It was a test.
Sarah: What did you do?
Victoria: I put three bullets in his chest.

Ivan: [as they dance] Your radiance tonight renders me almost speechless.
Victoria: Almost.

Cooper: [about the records room] I didn't even know this place existed.
Henry, The Records Keeper: [indignant] It doesn't!

Marvin: [as Sarah make a phone call] Frank, we gotta get rid of this broad. I know a great place just up the road, lots of alligators.
Frank: We're not getting rid of the broad. I like her.
Marvin: What's the angle?
Frank: No angle. I like her.
