“- Qohen Leth: What kind of work do you do exactly?
- Bainsley: I shoot trouble.”
“- Qohen Leth: What I'm living for?
- Management: That's a good question Mr Leth, posed entirely to the wrong person. You see, it seems you've mistaken me for a considerably higher power. I'm not the source of your call. I'm not God or the Devil, I'm just a man ... seeking the truth.”
“In a way, from the moment of birth, we all begin to die. Call it divinely planned obsolence. Soon or late, beggar or king, death is the end of all things.”

“- Bainsley: I knew you just seemed just - well, you were lonely.
- Qohen Leth: You're wrong. We were always alone, never lonely.”
“- Qohen Leth: Nothing adds up.
- Joby: No. You've got it backwards, Qohen. Everything adds up to nothing, that's the point.”
“We'll go somewhere faraway, to a special place, on a tropical island. A real one. Just come with me. I know we connected somehow, you know? I know we did. And you need me. And I need to be needed so bad. Just come with me. You know we can be together for real. Just run away with me.”
“- Joby: Hi Bob. Working hard, or hardly working?
- Bob: Pays the same either way.”
“I'm sorry to interrupt, but I notice this young lady's pathological attempt to project upon you her daddy issues of abandonment!”
“Life might be seen as a virus infecting the perfect organism of death.”
“- Management: I never said all is for nothing. I'm a businessman, Mr. Leth, nothing is for nothing. Ex inordinateo veni pecunia.

- Management: There's money in ordering disorder. Chaos pays, Mr. Leth.”
