[Payne is holding Harry hostage in the parking garage at gunpoint with explosives strapped to his chest.]
Payne: End of the line. This day has been real dissappointing, I don't mind saying.
Jack: Why, 'cause you didn't get to kill everyone?
Payne: There will come a time, boy, when you'll wish you'd never met me.
Jack: Mister, I'm already there.

Jack: [disgusted at seeing a cheap gold watch strapped to the bomb on the bus or, seeing enough C-4 to, "blow a hole in the world"]: FUCK ME!!
Stephens, a tourist: [politely] Oh darn.

[Jack stops a Jaguar.]
Jack: Stop! L.A.P.D, Get out of the car!
Jaguar owner: Jesus, not again! Hey, Man. This is my car. I own this car. It's not stolen.
Jack: [draws his pistol] It is now! Move over.

Jack: [to the Jaguar owner] Are you insured?
Jaguar owner: Yeah! Why?
[Jack opens his door and slows down, so the bus breaks the door.]
Jaguar owner: [unbeliving] Ah! You broke my door!
Jack: Sir, I need to take your phone.
Jaguar owner: Take the phone!

Norwood: [to Mac] Sir, we have a serious problem.
Mac: What?
Norwood: This freeway isn't finished.
Mac: What are you talking about?
Norwood: The aerial unit caught it. About three miles away there's a section missing.
Mac: But it's on the map. It's finished on the goddamn map!
Norwood: I guess they fell behind.
Mac: Fuck! You're fired! Everybody's fucking fired!

[Jack is at the airport.]
Norwood: [shows Mac a map] He's headed the end of the field. That must be Bravo Tango, an emergency runway.
Mac: Yeah, let's hope it's built! Let's move.

Stephens: We're at the airport.
Ortiz: Yeah, so?
Stephens: I already seen the airport.

Helen: Oh my God! We might've died. I can't think!
Stephens: It's OK. If you need to, you go right ahead and vomit.

[Jack says he is going to get off the bus for a minute.]
Stephens: Are you just gonna leave us here?
Ortiz: I would.

[Jack calls Harry in whose office while he is trying to get on the bus and tells him the bomber's back. Mac enters Harry's office.]
Mac: We got a random demand from your dead terrorist. He's rigged the city bus. Where's Jack?
Harry: [puts down the phone] Where do you think?
