Quotes:
From The Day of the Jackal (1973)
Col. Rodin: We are not terrorists, you understand. We are patriots. Our duty is to the soldiers who died fighting in Algeria, and to the three million French citizens who have always lived there.

The Jackal: It's possible. The point is getting away with it. And speaking as a professional, that's a very important consideration.
