The Last King of Scotland
Movie Quote Quiz

Masanga: Hallo Nicholas! Welcome to the president's car.

Nicholas Garrigan: This is Africa. You meet violence with violence. Anything else, and you're dead.

Idi Amin: I am ashamed that you saw me like that. I was frightened.
Nicholas Garrigan: I'm a doctor. Everything that passes between us is confidential. Ok? I've taken an oath.
Idi Amin: But a man that shows fear... he is weak, and he is a slave.
Nicholas Garrigan: Well... if you're afraid of dying, shows you have a life worth keeping.

Idi Amin: You are British?
Nicholas Garrigan: Scottish. I am Scottish.
Idi Amin: Scottish? Ha! Ha! Why didn't you say so?.. Great soldiers. Very brave. And good people. Completely. Let me tell you, if I could be anything instead of a Ugandan, I would be a Scot.
Nicholas Garrigan: Right... Really?
Idi Amin: He. Except for the red hair, which I'm sure is attractive to your women, but which we Africans, we find is quite disgusting.

Idi Amin: Look at you. Is there one thing you have done that is good? Did you think this was all a game? 'I will go to Africa and I will play the white man with the natives.' Is that what you thought? We are not a game, Nicholas. We are real. This room here, it is real. I think your death will be the first real thing that has happened to you.

Nicholas Garrigan: I didn't want him to die though.
Idi Amin: But you did it. Why? You want to know why?
Nicholas Garrigan: Yes.
Idi Amin: You did it because you love me.

Sarah Merrit: Do you know the feeling when you're married to a really nice guy?
Dr. Garrigan: You feel like a shit.
Sarah Merrit: Yeah.

Nicholas Garrigan: If you're afraid of dying it shows you have a life worth living.

Idi Amin: They take you to a tree and hang you by your skin. Each time you scream the evil comes out of you. Sometimes, it can take three days for your evil to be spent. Pull him up.

Nigel Stone: Should you find the need to clarify your status regarding the details of that relationship, we would have course welcome any clarification you might feel the need to share with us.
Nicholas Garrigan: Is there some special school where you people learn to talk that bollocks?

Idi Amin: Before I forget, I need to ask you a favor.
Nicholas Garrigan: Anything.
Idi Amin: I will be in Libya next week, and I need you to attend a meeting in my place.
Nicholas Garrigan: What kind of meeting?
Idi Amin: A simple matter of taste and common sense. I cannot think of anyone better than you.

Idi Amin: You dare try to poison me? After everything I gave you? I am Idi Amin! President-for-life and ruler of Uganda. I am the father of Africa.
Nicholas Garrigan: You're a child. You have the mind and ego of an angry, spoiled, uneducated child. And that's what makes you so fucking scary.

Nigel Stone: You know what they're calling you? Amin's white monkey.

Idi Amin: I am the father of this nation, Nicholas. And you have most... grossly... offended your father.

Continuity mistake: In the airport when Nicholas goes, Dr. Junju gives him his jacket, but later Dr. Junju is wearing the jacket again.
