This is My Life Nowv

Old Joe: "It's hard staring into your eyes. It's too strange."
Young Joe: "Your face looks backwards... So do you know what's going to happen? You done all this already? As me?"
Old Joe: "I don't want to talk about time travel because if we start talking about it then we're going to be here all day talking about it, making diagrams with straws."
Young Joe: "We both know how this has to go down. I can't let you walk away from this diner alive. This is my life now. I earned it. You had yours already. So why don't you do what old men do and die?"
Old Joe: "Why don't you just take your little gun out from between your legs and do it, boy?"

Never Let Your Target Escapev
Young Joe: "Time travel has not yet been invented but 30 years from now, it will have been. I am one of many specialized assassins in our present called loopers. So when criminal organizations in the future need gone, they zap them back to me and I eliminate the target from the future. Loopers are well paid. We live the good life and the only rule is never let your target escape, even if your target is you."
In another explanation of what his character does and the basis for the movie itself, young Joe states that his job is to kill those sent from the future in his present. Things however get interesting when his next target is himself.

Like an Egg
