Quotes

[a police detective confronts McCall about a vigilante killing criminals in McCall's name]
Sgt. Oliver Gant: I don't like what you do.
Robert McCall: What is it you think I do?
Sgt. Oliver Gant: You are a hired gun!
Robert McCall: If by that remark you mean that I sometimes help people in trouble, yes I do. But if you mean that I'm anything like this madman out there, then you're wrong again! Let me tell you something, Sergeant: That man is harming my reputation, so if you think you want him, I want him a damn sight more!
