Movie Quote Quiz

Richard Jemmons: I'm blacker than you are. I got some slave in me, I can feel it.

Gov. Jack Stanton: I'm going to tell you something really outrageous. I'm going to tell you the truth.

Gov. Jack Stanton: You know as well as I do, that plenty of people playing this game, they don't think that way. They're willing to sell their souls, crawl through sewers, lie to people, divide them, play on their worst fears for nothing! Just for the prize.

Howard Ferguson: He's lost them.
Henry Burton: Fuck 'em. He's got me.

Other mistake: In the scene at the kitchen table where the New York analyst is suggesting ways for Jack Stanton to deny the allegations he has impregnated a teenage black woman, to the staff he says, "We can go on Montel or Geraldo or some show like that." Only his mouth doesn't say "Montel." He is saying "Oprah," but has been dubbed in post-production to say Montel.
