From Escape from New York (1981)
President: Oh... listen, I want to thank you back there for saving my life. If there's anything you want... anything at all...
Snake Plissken: Just a moment of your time.
President: Of course... Yes?
Snake Plissken: We did get you out. But a lot of people died in the process. I just wondered how you felt about it.
President: [cocky, distant tone] Well, I... I wanna thank them. This nation appreciates their sacrifice.
President: Look, I'm on in... two minutes?
[shaking his head with disgust, Snake walks away]
