Dr. Jonas: Have you ever been a place where hope was gone? Where all that's left is patience?

Alice Sutton: If you could remember who stabbed you with the wheelchair, and where it happened it would really help.

Jerry Fletcher: A good conspiracy is unprovable. I mean, if you can prove it, it means they screwed up somewhere along the line.

Jerry: That's what they, they start when you're young, y'know. When you're little they, at school they, they Baden-Powell all the boys and they Betty Crocker all the girls and they, then they air condition ya' and put ya' in the Heat N' Bake Oven and ya' can't breathe any more.

Jerry: David Berkowitz, Ted Bundy, Richard Speck.
Alice: What about them?
Jerry: Serial killers. Serial killers only have two names. You ever notice that? But lone gunmen assassins, they always have three names. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, Mark David Chapman.
Alice: John Hinckley. He shot Reagan. He only has two names.
Jerry: Yeah, but he only just shot Reagan. Reagan didn't die. If Reagan had died, I'm pretty sure we probably would all know what John Hinckley's middle name was.

Jerry: What do we know? If I know what we know then I could tell you what we know and if anyone else knows.

Jerry Fletcher: Love gives you wings. It makes you fly. I don't even call it love. I call it Geronimo. When you're in love, you'll jump right from the top of the Empire State and you won't care, screaming "Geronimo" the whole way down. I love her so bad, I just... whoa, she wrecks me. I'd die for her.

Agent Lowry: If the intelligence community is a family, think of us as the uncle no one talks about.

Alice Sutton: How did you know this was my car?
Jerry: I didn't. It was just a lucky guess. Look, I feel kinda naked. Could we get outta here?
Alice Sutton: Please don't tell me you're naked back there.
Jerry: No, it's just a figure of speech, could we go? Please?
Alice Sutton: Yeah, OK, OK.

Dr. Jonas: Years ago I worked for the CIA on the MK ultra program. Are you familiar with it?
Alice Sutton: It was mind control. "Manchurian Candidate" kind of stuff.
Dr. Jonas: That's a vulgar generalization. But yes, you take an ordinary man an turn him into an assassin. That was our goal.

Jerry: GET back you damn, dumb, complicit sons of bitches! You're looking for a man with no nose! Not me, not me.

Jerry Fletcher: The Vietnam War was fought over a bet that Howard Hughes lost to Aristotle Onassis.

Continuity mistake: In one scene when Jerry is entering the Federal Building, he starts through the metal detector, and he is stopped by a guard, and is asked for his keys, so he does not set off the alarm. Problem is, the guard, immediately hands the keys back to him, through the arch of the metal detector, yet it does not set off the alarm.

Question: In the end of the movie when Jerry is shot, why is he airlifted to another hospital, doesn't the mental hospital have a trauma center?

Answer: Yes, that hospital may have had a trauma unit, but the NSA team, if they were NSA, led by Lowery / Hatcher (the guy who Alice 'knocked out') wanted to get Jerry away from Alice ASAP so that she would no longer be in any danger. The chopper then flew him, offscreen, to get patched up. Also we don't know that Jerry was airlifted to another hospital. But we can assume. An NSA controlled hospital. Or private government facility. A place where no questions would be asked.
