->''"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 are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired [[RetiredBadass 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'''."''

* IronicEcho: The phrase "Good luck." Not in the usual way, but perhaps even more {{Badass}}. Bryan tricks the {{mook|s}} who said it to him over the phone into repeating it to him in person right before he reveals who he is.
