Jack Morrison: Tell Linda I love her... That I've loved her from the second I saw her.
Jack Morrison: (Latched onto a frantic man while hanging from a rope) Calm down! Sir - you need to calm down! I swear to God I'll drop you!
Jack Morrison: You know, Mike asked me tonight if I loved the job like I did before, and for the first time in my life, I didn't know what to say.
