Minister: For god sake, you bloody yanks are all the same
[snaps document binder]
Minister: . You all run like a John Wayne and leave us to clean up your mess. I've got three embassies baying for blood. I got two dead diplomats on a partridge on a bloody pear tree. Whitehall running around like a bunch of headless chickens. What exactly am I supposed to tell Prime Minister?
Samuel L. Jackson: [pausing to exhale cigar smoke] Tell him that Uncle Sam's in town.
Andy Millman: He doesn't think you're a racist.
Maggie Jacobs: He does! He's just seen me say to a black woman, "You're not allowed to sit on this bus." It's like that whole racism-on-a-bus incident all over again.
Andy Millman: What, the Rosa Parks incident?
Maggie Jacobs: It wasn't in a park, it was on a bus.
Andy Millman: Sure.
Maggie Jacobs: Why don't you just tell him you don't want to be his friend?
Andy Millman: It's too damning. You can't say that to someone. That is saying that you fundamentally have a problem with their personality.
Maggie Jacobs: What are you gonna do?
Andy Millman: The only honourable thing I can do.
Maggie Jacobs: What?
Andy Millman: Add him to the long list of people that I have to avoid for the rest of my life. You can never have that time back.
