This is a Get-Out-of-Hell card. At some point in your life, God forbid, you have no where else to turn, call that number. That is why you are going to postpone your job.

Colonel Tom Ryan - "Each solider in the unit carries their own body bag, and until you carry one you don't deserve to talk to my men about their code.

You think you need to remind them about their codes of silence. They answer to a higher code."
FBI Agent: "Sergeant Major Where are you going?" Jonas: I'm gonna take down that plane. And I've got my best man in the woods, so if you give me up he will come down here and shoot you dead. You, You and You, Panic. The rest of you come with me."
