Silvia Broome: I walked away from Africa with nothing. No brother, no family, no lover, nothing... Just a belief that words and compassion are the better way. Even if it's slower than a gun.
FBI Agent King: It's hard to remember that Edmond Zuwanie was once a good man. That's not unusual for these guys. They all begin as liberators and 20 minutes later they're as corrupt as the tyrants they've overthrown. He liberated the country from one of the most corrupt governments on earth. Gave the people hope, and he was a hero. They need another name for what he is now.
Nils Lud: Nils Lud. Dr Zuwanie's head of security. I thought since you were in a question-answering mood, I might ask one or two. Might I ask where you stand now politically, Miss Broome?
Silvia Broome: I'm for peace and quiet, Mr. Lud. It's why I came to the U.N. Quiet diplomacy.
Nils Lud: With respect, you only interpret.
Silvia Broome: Countries have gone to war because they've misinterpreted one another.
Trivia: "The Interpreter" was almost banned from Zimbabwe because of the similarities between the Matoban regime of Dr. Zuwanie and that of Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe.
