Lara: Why can't you give Taylor what they want?
Bobby: Because it's too much. And what they want can't be given. It needs to be taken.
Lara: And what would you do if they tried to take it?
Bobby: Cut 'em down like I was Connor MacLeod.
Lara: What does it say that you always have to quote the damn Highlander?
Bobby: That I spent some time watching cable TV alone in high school. And that I have pristine taste in movies, even back then.
Lara: Or, that you see every single challenge as a life or death contest to see who's gonna lose their head.
Bobby: Well, kind of is from where I stand.
