Movie Quote Quiz

Ellen Mitchell: Why couldn't you die from a stroke like everyone else?

Dave Kovic: She's great. She's really exotic! She's a princess! She's Polynesian - well, half Polynesian, and half American. She's... Amnesian.

Alan Reed: Bob, at some point we're gonna have to call the Vice President.

Bob Alexander: What do you think you're doing?
Dave: What? Oh, you mean the press conference. I had a couple of ideas that I wanted to share with the country.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film, Dave Kovic addresses Congress, just before he has his "second stroke." The camera often shows the congressman in their seats, as well as shots which show the balcony, where spectators and the press sit. If you watch closely you'll note that in some shots the balcony is jammed packed with people and in others it is completely empty. (01:31:20)
