Miller: When you peddled that shit in DC, did they know it was a lie? Or did they just never bother to ask?
Clark Poundstone: Okay, okay. Come on, none of this matters anymore. WMD? This doesn't matter.
Miller: What the fuck you talking about? Of course it fucking matters! The reasons we go to war always matter! It's all that matters! It fucking matters!
Mark Whitacre: Polar bears cover their noses before they pounce on a seal. How do polar bears know their noses are black? Did they look in the water one day, see their reflection and say, "Man, I'd be invisible if it wasn't for that thing."
Francois Pienaar: Come boys. What the heck are we doing? Lomu is killing us. Forwards, we must start scrumming. We must disrupt them at the first phase. Can't allow Lomu to get the ball in space. He's freaking killing us. But listen, if Lomu gets the ball, whoever's there... James, Joost... hit the fucking guy, hold onto him, hold him. Help will come, help will be there.
Nelson Mandela: How do you inspire your team to do their best?
Francois Pienaar: By example. I've always thought to lead by example, sir.
Nelson Mandela: Well, that is right. That is exactly right. But how do we get them to be better then they think they CAN be? That is very difficult, I find. Inspiration, perhaps. How do we inspire ourselves to greatness when nothing less will do? How do we inspire everyone around us? I sometimes think it is by using the work of others.
Francois Pienaar: Can I ask you a question, Lieutenant?
Hendrick Booyens: Ja, of course.
Francois Pienaar: What's he like?
Hendrick Booyens: When I worked for the previous President, it was my job to be invisible. This President... Well, he found out I like English toffee, and he brought me some back from his visit to England.
Nerine: Thinking about tomorrow?
Francois Pienaar: No. Tomorrow's taken care of, one way or another. I was thinking about how you spend 30 years in a tiny cell, and come out ready to forgive the people who put you there.
Jason Bourne: I know who I am. I remember everything.
Nicky Parsons: Remembering everything doesn't mean you know everything.
Jason Bourne: I volunteered because of a lie. They said my father was killed by terrorists! He wasn't killed by terrorists, was he?
Rannulph Junuh: I'm not asking for your crown, Walter. If I wanted it badly enough, I'd just take it.
Rannulph Junuh: Is there something you want to tell me?
Adel Invergordon: Well, I'm trying to think of how to say it, Junuh. There is a purpose to this visit... and that's to apologize. But I'm not a naturally apologetic woman, so it takes me a little longer to get my thoughts in order.
Rannulph Junuh: Alright I'll play in your stupid golf tournament (to Adel) I shoulda' let you finish what you started, now I got nothin' at all to show for it.
