Quotes / Leverage

"People like that... corporations like that, they have all the money, they have all the power, and they use it to make people like you go away. Right now, you're suffering under an enormous weight. We provide... Leverage."
Nate, The Nigerian Job

Nate: There’s nothing glamorous about what I do. Powerful people have tried very hard to kill me, and almost succeeded. I’ve served time in jail. Hell, I’ve been shot several times— I can’t even lift my arms over my head anymore. This isn’t exactly what you’d call a great lifestyle choice.
Elizabeth: Allow me to refute your points, Nathan. I’ll give you jail— though I will add that it was medium security and your sentence was commuted. But you were shot on the job while you were working at IYS, too— by an art thief, if I recall the story correctly— and powerful people tried to kill you then, too. The difference is, now you’re doing what you do to assist people in need rather than serving a corporation whose purpose is to try to avoid paying the very services that people specifically pay us to provide. I’d definitely say you’ve moved up in the world.
