Preston: I wonder if we'll ever know, who the hell he really was?
Declan Mulqueen: We know all we need to, he was evil. He's dead, and he's gone. Nothing more matters.

Preston: Did you read the paper today? I'm quite the hero because of you. The agent who saved the first lady. Ha ha. I could screw everything else up for the rest of my life and still be... untouchable.
Declan Mulqueen: That a fact, then?

Declan Mulqueen: What's her story then?
Preston: Major Koslova... ends the debate about women in combat. As far as I'm concerned.
Declan Mulqueen: How's that?
Preston: When she saved my life and took out Terek's brother. She did it knowing she'd be drawing a death sentence down on her own neck. When we offered to set her up someplace else when this is over... know what she said? 'The good guys don't hide.'
Declan Mulqueen: Fierce woman.
Preston: Huh, in that country? Under that system? Staggering.

Terek Murad: The M.V.D. killed my brother. For that, I will see they drowned in blood. But their allies in America I wish to send a message... A very public message. I was to strike fear into the marrow of their bones. [Holds out a picture of a target.] Can you kill this person?
The Jackal: Yes.

Preston: He said... "Jackal"?
Russian Officer: Does this mean something to you, Mr. Preston
Preston: There's supposedly a killer for hire who uses that name. Several assassinations are credited to him, but we've never been able to prove if he even exists.

Russian Officer: Terek's men are notoriously hard to turn out. Should we get the opportunity, we must be prepared to conduct the interrogation with the with the utmost efficiency. Good day to you, Mr. Preston.
Preston: Sir. [The officer leaves.] I don't think I wanna know... what that means.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, the Jackal tries to kill the first lady in Washington. This is where the hospital opening takes place. When he flees into the subway station, the name it has is indeed of a station in Washington (Capitol Heights), the subway-cars however are from the Montreal subway system (which ride around on rubber tyres).

Preston: Are you crazy? If the right people knew I was letting you walk around without cuffs, I'd have forced retirement.
