Quotes

[as he comes home]

Hershel Vilnofsky: Edra? Edra? Where are you? Edra... you heard it on the radio?

Edra Vilnofsky: I... I left the groceries on the table.

Hershel Vilnofsky: You heard? About the plane?

Edra Vilnofsky: There's... frozen orange juice. It should go in the... refrigerator.

Hershel Vilnofsky: For God's sake, what are you talking about, frozen orange juice? Chana... is in the plane. With terrorists!

Edra Vilnofsky: I... I've been thinking. I should... never have let her wear that red ribbon.

Hershel Vilnofsky: [as he browses through the radio channels] What red ribbon?

Edra Vilnofsky: Around her neck.

Hershel Vilnofsky: [turns the radio off] Nothing on the radio.

Edra Vilnofsky: She wanted to grow up to go to Paris.

Hershel Vilnofsky: She could be killed! What are you talking about, her ribbon?

Edra Vilnofsky: Suppose... suppose they let the children go. They'll never see that she's... just a little girl! They'll think she's a woman!

[at Entebbe Airport, as he sees a blue car and some men approaching the plane]

Aaron Olav: [excited] They're Israelis! They're going to get us out of here!

Benjamin Wise: I don't think they're Israelis.

Aaron Olav: No, they're Jews! You can tell! I'm telling you! It's alright!

[the female terrorists runs to the men and hugs them]

Benjamin Wise: I don't think they're Jews.

Aaron Olav: [surprised] Oh. Where do they come from?

Benjamin Wise: Probably Kampala. It's about 30 kilometers from here.

Nathan Haroun: Well, they're...

Aaron Olav: Arabs. Arabs... You can tell... Arabs.

Benjamin Wise: What are you reading?

Etta Grossman-Wise: Agatha Christie.

Benjamin Wise: You read that one in Tel Aviv!

Etta Grossman-Wise: Um-hum, I know. But fortunately, I have just gotten older and absent-minded enough to have forgotten who the murderer is!

[before the Israelis are separated from the other hostages]

Benjamin Wise: Mother, you have a British passport. You stay with the others!

Etta Grossman-Wise: Don't be foolish. They have my Israeli identification card. Besides, it says: Etta Grossman-Wise. Even a German might suspect something.

[Mrs. Wise is staring at one of the terrorists]

Benjamin Wise: Mother, you have to sit around for the take-off.

Etta Grossman-Wise: He has a box.

Benjamin Wise: Who has?

Etta Grossman-Wise: It's tinned. It's between his feet. It says dates. Why would anyone travel with a box of dates? You could carry anything in that box: a gun, a bomb...

Benjamin Wise: Mother!

Etta Grossman-Wise: We should have travelled El Al.

Benjamin Wise: They were all booked.

Etta Grossman-Wise: I don't like Athens.

Benjamin Wise: I know. Very bad security in Athens.

Etta Grossman-Wise: You could come in to Athens from anywhere, and nobody will check between the transit lounge and another plane.

[after hearing the female terrorist yelling orders in German]

Etta Grossman-Wise: The woman is a Nazi.

Benjamin Wise: Mother, now don't get excited!

Etta Grossman-Wise: Where do you think, Mr. Olav? You've had an extensive military background. Where do you think we're going?

Aaron Olav: What?

Etta Grossman-Wise: My son says Khartoum. On the other hand, this gentleman...

Nathan Haroun: Haroun.

Etta Grossman-Wise: ...says Somalia. And as for me... I think India!

Aaron Olav: India?

Etta Grossman-Wise: Why not? I've never been to India! They have erotic temples there, I'm told. I've never seen an erotic temple.

Aaron Olav: That's ridiculous! India? Who ever heard of being hijacked to India?

Etta Grossman-Wise: Well, everybody has an opinion. Now, it's your turn.

Aaron Olav: I don't know!

Etta Grossman-Wise: Well, think it over. When you decide it, let us know, hum?

Aaron Olav: India, hum? India... Humph! Pfah! India!

[Olav and Haroun leave]

Benjamin Wise: Are you serious? India?

Etta Grossman-Wise: Certainly!

[pause]

Etta Grossman-Wise: Or China.
