Lucas: Hello Job. Job: You're out? Lucas: I'm out. Job: Listen, I know why you're here, but I cannot help you.
Job: You've got the whole world in front of you, and you're going to the one place you should not go.
Dan: Jesus Christ, Gordon! Gordon: Oh, pace yourself Dan. Our day will come. Guys like Kai Proctor don't go down easy.
Carrie: How did you find me? It was Job? Lucas: It's a nice house...yeah. Seems, uh, solid. So what, do you have two kids? Carrie: Yes. Lucas: Yeah? How old? Carrie: My son is eight. My daughter is thirteen. Lucas: Hmm, she looks older. I can smell your perfume from here. Carrie: Please, you're going to have to leave. Please...please.. Lucas: Anna... Carrie: I'm not Anna any more. My name is Carrie.
Sugar: Tell me you've got some sort of master plan here. Lucas: Nope, I usually just get by on my charm.
When Lucas' car is hit by his pursuer, he recovers from the accident and has a small cut next to his eyebrow. The camera angle changes, and Lucas climbs out of the car, and the cut on the side of his head is suddenly gone.
When the tour bus gets overturned seats begin to fall on the ground behind Lucas as he runs away. When the camera angle changes a second later, Lucas is still running away, but the chair that was just on the ground behind him has disappeared.
