QUOTES FROM Michael Nyqvist CHARACTERS

Viggo Tarasov
What happened John?... we were professionals... civilised!
Viggo Tarasov
What happened John? We were professionals... civilized!
John Wick
Do I look civilised to you?
Viggo Tarasov
John was once an associate of ours. They call him Baba Yaga.
Iosef Tarasov
The boogeyman?
Viggo Tarasov
Well, John wasn't exactly the boogeyman. He was the one you sent to kill the fucking boogeyman!
Iosef Tarasov
Oh.
Avi
Should I go?
Viggo Tarasov
(Speaking in Russian)
Avi
Viggo, English, please! Come on.
Viggo Tarasov
Stay, goddamn it!
Viggo Tarasov
Why did you hit my son?
Aurelio
Because he stole John Wick's car and killed his dog.
Viggo Tarasov
Oh.
Kurt Hendricks
How will the world finally end? It is my job to predict the unthinkable. To treat the deaths of billions as a game. After 20 years of this, I was numb. Until a new question crossed my mind. What happens after the end of the world? Every two or three million years, some natural catastrophe devastates all life on Earth. But life goes on. And what little remains is made stronger. Put simply, world destruction is an unpleasant but necessary part of evolution. What happens then, I wondered, when mankind faces the next end of the world. I looked to Hiroshima, Nagasaki... thriving cities rebuilt from the ashes, monuments to the unimaginable, dedicated to the concept of peace. It occured to me here that nuclear war might have a place in the natural order. But only if it could be controlled. Only if it touched every living soul equally.
Kozlow
I can guarantee this: if you don't surrender that list, I will killing every friend you have, Zake, Keelie, neighbors, even your boring teachers, and when i'm finished you will be responsible for the death of every friend you have on facebook.
Kozlow
"There's a bomb in the oven"
Kozlow
There's a bomb in the oven.
Mikael Blomkvist
I would have never done it, Lisbeth. But I understand why you did. I don't know what you have experienced. But I was about to die in that cellar, and you saved my life. Whatever you have seen, you don't need to tell me. I'm just happy that you're here.
