Forrestal, a former member of John Matrix's unit who works as a car salesman, is marked for death by Arius (q.v.). Cooke (q.v.) is the one who does the deed, pretending to buy an all-leather interior Cadillac from Forrestal's dealership. At Forrestal's insistence, he climbs behind the wheel and starts the motor up to see how it feels. Fixing Forrestal with a cold stare, Cooke asks him, "You know what I like best about this car? The price."

Putting the Cadillac in reverse, Cooke drives backwards as Forrestal protests, and points out the bleeding obvious "Wait a minute, you can't do that in here!" But Cooke shows that he can indeed do “that in here” as he floors it, driving right into Forrestal, knocking him over the hood of the car before driving out of the dealership right through the display window. Forrestal, crushed from the blow dealt him, rolls off the hood, and lies dead amongst the broken glass.

Shouldn't he be more of An Innocent Bystander?
Comment 2 by 'Matt' (reply to this comment)
No, because he has a direct relation to the plot. Innocent Bystanders tend to be more like shop clerks who end up getting shot but don't have a real role.
Comment 3 by 'Bill' (reply to this comment)
Good point. What made me thought about that was he only had like two lines.. never mind then!
