Movie Quote Quiz

John McCain: You don't think she's too outside the box?

Steve Schmidt: Still think she's fit for office?
Rick Davis: Aw, who cares. In forty-eight hours no-one will even remember who she is.

Steve Schmidt: I need you to step in and talk to her.
John McCain: I don't know, Stevie-boy. I don't know.
Steve Schmidt: Sir, I can't control her anymore. I don't know if she's getting on a campaign plane in the morning or what she's gonna say at night. We need to finish this campaign with as much dignity as possible and the only way that can happen is if you get her in line.
John McCain: That's not gonna do it, Steve. She might start turning on me.

Steve Schmidt: What the fuck is the Alaska Independence Party and was she ever a member of it?
Tucker Eskew: The AIP is a political party whose sole platform is the secession of Alaska from the Union.
Steve Schmidt: Well ain't that a hoot.

John McCain: And they said we were dead. Next stop, the White House.

Rick Davis: Listen, I too wish that the American people would choose the future Abraham Lincoln or Thomas Jefferson, but unfortunately, that's not the way it works anymore. Now it takes movie-star charisma to get elected President, and Obama and Palin, that's what they are - they're stars.
Steve Schmidt: Primary difference being Sarah Palin can't name a Supreme Court decision, whereas Barack Obama was a constitutional law professor.
Rick Davis: Fuck you.

John McCain: You're one of the leaders of the party now, Sarah. Don't get co-opted by Limbaugh and the other extremists. They'll destroy the party if you let them.

John McCain: I hate it when there's leaking and backstabbing after a campaign, let alone before it's fucking over.

Mark Salter: John is getting slammed for making an irresponsible choice.
Steve Schmidt: We picked her.
Mark Salter: No, you two picked her and then slapped her on the butt and shoved her out there under a banner saying "Country First".

Anderson Cooper: If you had to do it over again, would you have her on the ticket?
Steve Schmidt: You don't get to go back in time, Anderson, and have do-overs in life.

Sarah Palin: Did you get the numbers?
Nicolle Wallace: The what?
Sarah Palin: My approval rating in Alaska.
Nicolle Wallace: They're not in yet.
Sarah Palin: I'm trying to trust you people, but you're making it really hard for me.

Character mistake: It's said in the movie a vice presidential candidate never gave a concession speech. Geraldine Ferraro did this in 1984.
