Quotes Achmed Abdullah: My gift cannot share your couch, my dear friend, but I know how much you love animals.
[he gestures towards a tiger]
Achmed Abdullah: . Does she please you?
The Old Man of the Mountain: Ohhh... a well-matched exchange, worthy of two old friends who trust each other.
Achmed Abdullah: It is difficult to fully trust a friend whose face one never sees. I would consider it a friendly act if you removed your golden mask.
The Old Man of the Mountain: It is a friendly act that I do not remove it. All who see my face - die!
Achmed Abdullah: But your assassins
[gesturing towards them]
Achmed Abdullah: all see your face.
The Old Man of the Mountain: And all die. And go to paradise the moment I tell them their time has come.
Achmed Abdullah: But the women... the women you love, surely you remove your mask for them?
The Old Man of the Mountain: Oh, if you only knew how much it hurts me to lose so many loved ones...!
[he sighs heavily]
The Old Man of the Mountain: Do you still wish me to remove my mask?
Achmed Abdullah: Who me? Did I ask for that? No!
