Emilio Restrepo: Never forget where you came from.

Emilio Restrepo: That’s what you want? You want me to teach you how to be a killer? Sure. No problem. I teach you. But you’ll be dead in five years. If you want to be a killer and survive, you got to be a smart one. You have to know things besides how to pull a trigger. You have to know how the world works, how people think. You got to learn and understand how to be psychological. And I cannot teach you that unless you learn the basics at a school.
