Hank Deerfield (Tommy Lee Jones) conta a história de David e Golias ao filho da Detective Emily Sanders (Charlize Theron):
HANK - And you want to know how he beat him?
DAVID - How?
HANK - The first thing David had to fight was his own fear. He beat that, he beat Goliath. Because when Goliath came running, David planted his feet, took aim and waited. You know how uch courage that took? Just a few more steps and Goliath would've crushed him. Then he let fly with that rock. That's how you fight monsters. You lure them in close to you, you look them in the eye... you smack them down.
DAVID - You fight a lot of monsters?
HANK - Yeah.
DAVID - You win?
HANK - If I didn't, I'd have been crushed, right?
DAVID - Yeah.
HANK - Okay, then. Good night.
