A tanú (1969)
Virág Árpád: Life is not a whipped-cream cake, Pelikán.
Virág Árpád: All I can say, Comrade Pelikán, is that the international situation is intensifying.
Virág Árpád: But just remember this, Comrade Pelikán. The class struggle is intensifying.
Virág Árpád: That's a new skirt, isnt't it?
Gogolák elvtársnõ: It is, Comrade Virág.
Virág Árpád: It's too short. Leave the sexuality to be the opium of the declining Western.
Pelikán József, gátõr: As of today, the ghost train shall be know as The Socialist Ghost Train. We'll get rid of the skeletons and other old junk. We'll replace them with portraits of our great leaders, especially Comrade Bástya.
Bástya elvtárs: What's this?
Pelikán József, gátõr: An orange.
Bástya elvtárs: An orange?
Pelikán József, gátõr: The new Hungarian orange. It's slightly yellower, it's slightly sharper, but our own.
Virág Árpád: The international situation is intensifying. We've caught up with the latest group of inner parasites.
Pelikán József, gátõr: I feel a bit bad about it, though. Why do we have to make such a fuss over it? We deceived the people after all.
Virág Árpád: Who did we deceieve? Ourselves? We know what it's all about. The researchers? They're happy to have their medals. The masses? They don't eat lemons or oranges, but they're happy to celebrate. The imperialists? We've given them a thorough beating. I wouldn't like to be in their shoes. We proclaimed a slogan: let there be a Hungarian orange! And there it was! We made no empty promises, Pelikán!
Pelikán József, gátõr: I met Zoltán Dániel in 1942. I didn't yet suspect at that time...
judge: What didn't you suspect?
Pelikán József, gátõr: That I would meet frogmen.
Gulyás Elemér: Back again?
Pelikán József, gátõr: Shut up. The regime can thrive without me, too.
Gulyás Elemér: Not for long.
Pelikán József, gátõr: Why?
Gulyás Elemér: The Americans are coming.
Pelikán József, gátõr: Truman on a white horse? Don't you know anything new?
Virág Árpád: The suspicious thing about them is that they're not suspicious.
Virág Árpád: But remember: those who don't trust us, don't trust themselves and those who don't trust us don't trust our bright future, either. And those who don't trust our happy, bright future... are traitors.
Csetneki: Confidential upper orders. Vigilance comes first.
Pelikán József, gátõr: [upon seeing his newly built house] Comrade Virág! No doors? No windows?
Bástya elvtárs: [after reading the testimony of Pelikán] What's this? People don't even want to murder Comrade Bástya anymore? I'm worth shit nowadays?
Tuschinger: The previous trial... I didn't want to repeat myself. But I'll correct it. After our wise leader, Comrade Bástya was to be murdered.
