Victory at Entebbe (1976 TV Movie)
[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.
Shimon Peres: The government of Israel does not negotiate with terrorists!
[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: I'm not excited. I took a Valium. The woman is still a Nazi.
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!
Etta Grossman-Wise: Or China.
