Quotes Edit

  • Amanda Rosewater: What the hell are you doing in my sister's room? I mean, I know what you're doing in here.
  • Joshua Nolan: I'm pretty sure that if you didn't know what we were doing in here, you would have knocked first. Hey, my eyes are up here.


  • Datak Tarr: When I choose to make a statement, I rarely leave it unsigned. It's hubris, pure and simple. A personal flaw, but my wife seems to like it.


  • Datak Tarr: When you people look at me, you see a wild dog. A fierce, unpredictable beast. Occasionally useful when you need to smuggle illegal weapons or find a missing person. But best kept on a short chain. He's not to bite. If you truly saw me as a citizen, you wouldn't have brought this blunt instrument to yank me from my sleep and lay hands on me in front of my family. You think you're better than me. You lack respect. And that... is why I will not help you.


  • Joshua Nolan: You know, I've had my eye on the wrong snake. You're the dangerous one.
  • Stahma Tarr: You're very sweet.


  • Joshua Nolan: What have we here? Oh! Welcome to the gun show. You tell Datak Tarr I'm taking him apart a piece at a time. I'm gonna use this money, his money, and I'm gonna pay off every snitch in town. Anyone who's willing to give me information about his operations.
  • Castithan: Whatever.
  • Joshua Nolan: I'm gonna call it the Datak Tarr Retirement Plan.
