Vanessa Marianna: I know you're a dangerous man. That's why I brought a gun... to a dinner date.
Wilson Fisk: Would you like to leave?
Vanessa Marianna: No... I'd like a reason to stay.
Wilson Fisk: [Long pause] I've done things that I'm not proud of, Vanessa... I've hurt people, and I'm going to hurt more. It's impossible to avoid for what I'm trying to do. But I take no pleasure in it... in cruelty. But this city isn't a caterpillar. It doesn't spin a cocoon and wake up a butterfly. A city crumbles... and fades. It needs to die before it can be reborn.
Vanessa Marianna: So I don't need the gun?
Wilson Fisk: No, by my side... is the safest place you could ever be. (00:42:14 - 00:43:33)
Father Lantom: There is a wide gulf between inaction and murder, Mathew. Another man's evil does not make you good. Men have used the atrocities of their enemies to justify their own throughout history... So the question you have to ask yourself is... are you struggling with the fact that you don't want to kill this man but have to? Or... that you don't have to kill him... but want to?
