Tim Blake Nelson: Richard Schell
William Seward : Gentleman, you have a visitor.
W.N. Bilbo : [checking his friend cards] Oh my God, goddamn...
W.N. Bilbo : [President Lincoln walks in] I'll be fucked.
Abraham Lincoln : I wouldn't bet against it, Mr...?
W.N. Bilbo : W.N.Bilbo.
Abraham Lincoln : Yeah, Mr. Bilbo. Gentlemen...
Robert Latham : Sir.
W.N. Bilbo : Why are you here? No offense, but Mr. Seward's banished the very mention of your name, he won't even let us use fifty-cent pieces 'cause they got your face on 'em.
Abraham Lincoln : The Secretary of State here tells me that, uh... you got eleven Democrats in the bag. That's encouraging.
Richard Schell : Oh, you've got no cause to be encouraged. Sir. Uh...
Robert Latham : Are we being... fired?
Abraham Lincoln : [quoting Shakespeare] 'We have heard the chimes of midnight, Master Shallow.' I'm here to alert you boys that the great day of reckoning is nigh upon us.
