Karl Urban: William Cooper
Henry, The Records Keeper : Frank Moses was one of the most effective black op agents we've ever had. He retired drug-lords, terrorists. Hell, he toppled governments. Yeah. He was truly gifted.
William Cooper : Why was he retired?
Henry, The Records Keeper : He got old. Then some thumb-sucker came along and tagged him "RED."
William Cooper : Red?
Henry, The Records Keeper : Yeah. RED. R-E-D, "Retired: Extremely Dangerous."
William Cooper : Bad move, Grandpa.
[Frank calls Cooper on the phone; Cooper is told to stall him while the call is traced]
Frank Moses : Here's the thing, Cooper. With age... comes a certain perspective. I'd be a liar if I said there wasn't a time when I was exactly like you. Blind ambition. Misplaced trust.
William Cooper : Why are you telling me this?
Frank Moses : It may help me to decide what to do next.
Interrogation Surveillance Tech : [technician tracing the call whispering to Cooper] Just keep it going.
William Cooper : Why? What are you thinking about?
Frank Moses : Our business is a very hard one. But it was never the, uh... the killing or the stress, the bad pay that bothered me.
William Cooper : Well, what was it, Frank?
Frank Moses : It's how anything that you love... can be taken away from you. It taught me never to care. Never to invest. Then I met this woman. Sarah. And now you have her. Now I can't think of anything more horrible than to know that your enemies can hurt someone you love. The feeling is almost indescribable.
[the trace completes, and the technician hands Cooper a printout]
Frank Moses : You still there, Cooper?
William Cooper : [horrified] You're at my house
[Frank looks out the window into the yard where Cooper's wife and two children, unaware, are playing]
Frank Moses : Almost indescribable, isn't it?
William Cooper : [whispering] Please... Please don't hurt my family.
Frank Moses : If anything happens to Sarah, I will rip everything you love out of your life. And then I'll kill you.
