Quotes

Nico Toscani: You know something Fox. Right now in Europe they're trying some 80 year-old camp guard for Nazi war crimes. And all around our country they got guys on death row for murdering 1, 2, 3 guys. And they probably deserve what they're going to get. But you & I... we know a couple of people that are personally responsible for the death of what, 50,000 non-military personnel? Librarians, teachers, doctors, women, children. All dead! We've wiped-out entire cultures! And for what? Not one C.I.A. agent has ever been tried, much less accused of any crimes. You guys think you're above the law. Well, you ain't above mine.

Nico Toscani: Is that what Zagon is; one of your basement boys?

Nelson Fox: Zagon's a rancher. 4000 acres in Costa Rica. Beautiful place.

Nico Toscani: Beautiful place, huh? And tell me, was that bought with opium money from the triangle?

Nelson Fox: And a ton of coke a week from other places.

Nico Toscani: Which he funnels here through Salvano, The Company getting it's cut, of course.

Nelson Fox: Legal tender.

Nico Toscani: Yeah. So war is still the greatest business, huh Nelson? I mean, these guys have financed & started every war we've ever fought. But you know something, nobody would believe me if I told them the bankers run the C.I.A.

Nelson Fox: Oh, come on Toscani. Don't preach to me.

Nico Toscani: So, the Senator couldn't be bought, could he? He was going to expose your plans to invade Nicaragua, with your fuckin coke money. So The Agency clears Zagon to cap his ass, right?

Nelson Fox: Just keep walking, asshole.

Nico Toscani: So some poor innocent priest finds out; he comes here, but you can't kill the Senator until you find out if the padre has talked. So Zagon comes in with his little doctor bag. Only by then, I'm in on it. And you fuckin know that I'm going to recognize his handiwork.

Nelson Fox: Yeah. And if your name had been Joe Smith, I never would have caught it. But how many Nicolo Toscanis are there?

Nico Toscani: Tell me something old buddy, do we kill our own senators now?

Nelson Fox: Why not? The Romans did.

Nico Toscani: Are we the fucking Romans?

Nelson Fox: We're an empire too.

Nico Toscani: You don't believe that shit for a minute, Nelson.
