Dave speaks to Robert:

Dave: Three months after you, mmm, disappeared......government shut us down. I went private right after. Doing the same things you and I did for God and country......killing names on a piece of paper. Only now...Now there's a price next to them.

What's the meaning of "killing names on a piece of paper"?

    He's saying he is a paid assassin. He used to killl 'enemies' for the state/country, but now he does it 'freelance' (on his own account).

    He gets a list of names of people that he must kill on a piece of paper.
