Yuri Orlov: [narrating] There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.
Tons of quotes in IMDb:
There are over 550 million firearms in world-wide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is... how do we arm the other eleven? You don't have to worry. I'm not gonna tell you a pack of lies to make me look good. I'm just gonna tell you what happened. My name is Yuri Orlov. When I was a boy, my family came to America. But not all the way. Like most Ukrainians, we gathered in Brighton Beach. It reminded us of the Black Sea. I soon realized we'd just swapped one hell for another. Even in hell, an angel sometimes makes an appearance. I'd worshipped Ava Fontaine since I was 10 years old. Of course, she didn't know I existed. I was starting to think she had a point. For the first twenty-odd years of my life... Little Odessa was to me what it is to the Q train... the end of the line.
Huh, you have not seen the news. You know they accuse me of rigging elections. But after this, with your Florida and you Supreme Court of Kangaroos,
Here I'd been running away from violence my whole life, and I should've run towards it. It's in our nature.
The earliest human skeletons had spearheads in their rib cages.
RUF - the Freedom Fighters. Every faction in Africa calls themselves by the noble names. Liberation-this Patriotic-that, Democratic Republic of-something-or-other. I guess they can't own up to what they usually are Federation of Worse Oppressors than the Last Bunch of Oppressors. Often, the most barbaric atrocities occur when both combatants proclaim themselves "freedom fighters."
Hey. You trust me, right? She looked me directly in the eye... the way I've looked in the eyes of a thousand customs officials... government bureaucrats and law enforcement agents. Yes, I trust you. And she lied without flinching.
Tell me I'm everything you despise. That I'm the personification of evil. What? Responsible for the breakdown of the fabric of society and world order. I'm a one-man genocide.
They blame me for everything, those hypocrites. Their hunt for a witch. Witch hunt.
Are you paying attention? Or are you delusional? You have broken every arms embargo written. There is enough here to put you away for consecutive life sentences. You are going to spend the next ten years of your life going from a cell to a courtroom before you even start serving your time.
One thing I do understand for certain... is that Vitaly broke the cardinal rule of gunrunning. Never pick up a gun and join the customers.
At four and a half months old... a human fetus has a reptile's tail... a remnant of our evolution. Maybe that's what I couldn't escape. You can fight a lot of enemies and survive, but if you fight your biology,
you always lose.
I do rub shoulders with some of the most vile, sadistic men calling themselves leaders today. But some of those men are the enemies of your enemies. And while the biggest arms dealer in the world is your boss... the President of the United States, who ships more merchandise in a day I do in a year... sometimes it's embarrassing to have his fingerprints on the guns. Sometimes he needs a freelancer like me to supply forces he can't be seen supplying. So... you call me evil, but unfortunately for you, I'm a necessary evil. I would tell you to go to hell. But I think you're already there. Pleasure doing business with you. Most people are happy just to get out of jail. I expect to be paid to leave.
