The Day After Tomorrow (2004)
Jack Hall: Our climate is fragile. At the rate we're polluting the environment and burning fossil fuels, the ice caps will soon disappear.
Vice President Becker: Professor Hall, our economy is every bit as fragile as the environment. Perhaps you should keep that in mind before making sensationalist claims.
Jack Hall: Well, the last chunk of ice that broke off was the size of the state of Rhode Island. Some people might call that pretty sensational.

Vice President Becker: I don't accept that abandoning half of the country is necessary.
Gomez: Maybe if you would've listened to him sooner, it wouldn't be.
Vice President Becker: Bullshit! It's easy for him to suggest this plan. He's safely here in Washington.
Gomez: His son is in Manhattan. I just thought you should know that before you start questioning his motives.

Jack Hall: I'm sure you're aware of what's happening all around the world.
Vice President Becker: We're making all the necessary preparations for this storm. What more do you expect?
Jack Hall: You have to start thinking about large scale evacuations right now. Especially in the Northern states.
Vice President Becker: Evacuations?
Jack Hall: Yes.
Vice President Becker: Have you lost your mind, Hall? I have to go.
Jack Hall: Mr. Vice President, if we don't act now it's going to be too late.

Vice President Becker: For days, we've despaired about the fate of the people who are trapped in the North. Today, there is cause for hope. Only a few hours ago, I received word that a small group of people survived in New York City against all odds and in the face of tremendous adversity. I've ordered an immediate search-and-rescue mission to bring them home and to look for more survivors.
