Bryan: I was told I have 96 hours. That was sixteen hours ago.
Jean Claude: Okay, first we should find the spotter.
Bryan: I found him. He's dead.
Jean Claude: You found him that way? Bryan, you cannot just run around, tearing down Paris.
Bryan: Jean Claude, I will tear down the Eiffel Tower if I have to.
Bryan: I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have is a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
Jean Claude: I told you, I sit behind a desk now. I take my orders from someone who sits behind a bigger desk.
Bryan: Now's not the time for dick measuring, Stuart!
Bryan Mills: That's what happens when you sit behind a desk: you forget things, like the weight in the hand of a gun that's loaded and one that's not.
Bryan: [after electrocuting Marko.] You either give me what I need, or this switch will stay on until they turn the power off for lack of payment on the bill.
Bryan Mills: But if you don't get me what I need, the last thing you see before I make your children orphans is the bullet I put between her eyes.
Bryan: I have a daughter who wants to be a singer. I was wondering if you have any tips for her.
Diva: Yeah, I do. Tell her pick another career.
