Doctor Flamond: You see, a year ago, I was close to perfecting the first magnetic desalinization process so revolutionary, it was capable of removing the salt from over 500 million gallons of seawater a day. Do you realize what that could mean to the starving nations of the earth?
Nick Rivers: Wow. They'd have enough salt to last forever.
Doctor Flamond: If they find out you've seen this, your life will be worth less than a truckload of dead rats in a tampon factory.
Du Quois: Go with Nick. Don't worry about us. We will hear his music on the Voice of America. We will hear it in the hearts of the people, and in elevators everywhere.
Blind man: Souvenirs, novelties, party tricks. Souvenirs, novelties, party tricks.
Martin: Nick, I've tried everything: the embassy, the German government, the consulate. I even talked to the U.N. Ambassador. It's no use, I just can't bring my wife to orgasm.
All: Hail, hail East Germany / Land of fruit and grape / Land where you'll regret / If you try to escape / No matter if you tunnel under or take a running jump at the wall / Forget it, the guards will kill you, if the electrified fence doesn't first.
Du Quois: Well, monsieur Rivers, it seems that you have become... how do you say, indispensable?
Nick Rivers: Indispensable.
Du Quois: That's what I thought.
