Fun Stuff

From Iron Man 3 (2013)
[the Mandarin broadcasts his latest message to President Ellis on all networks]
The Mandarin: Mr. President. Only two lessons remain. And I intend to finish this before Christmas morning. Meet Thomas Richards. Good strong name, god strong job. Thomas here is an accountant for the Roxxon Oil Corporation. But I'm sure he's a really good guy.
[Richards sobs in fear as Mandarin points a gun down on him]
The Mandarin: I'm going to shoot him in the head, live on your television in 30 seconds. The number for this telephone is in your cell phone. Exciting, isn't it, imagining how it got there? America, if your President calls me in the next half-minute, Tom lives. Go!
[President Ellis checks his phone and discovers a phone number]
President Ellis: How did he hack my phone?
Secret Service Agent: We can't allow terrorists to dictate...
President Ellis: I have to make this call.
Secret Service Agent: I'd strongly advise against that.
President Ellis: This is the right thing to do.
