Movie Quote Quiz

Adam Leavitt: Sir, not to beat a dead horse, but if there was ever a time for us to put boots on Saudi sand, I mean, don't you think this is it?
Janet Mayes: There's no way, Adam. They will never allow it.
Adam Leavitt: Then let's just ask.
Janet Mayes: The Saudi Royal Family cannot appear as if they're losing control. If they lose control of their country, lose control of the people, they risk losing control of the oil. And that's not going to happen.

Ronald Fleury: You ever been to the U.S., Colonel?
Colonel Faris Al Ghazi: Yeah, I have been there once. I spent four days in Quantico. I also saw Michael Jordan play for the Washington Wizards.

Colonel Faris Al Ghazi: I'm forty-two years old. I have two daughters and a son. Beautiful son. And I find myself in a place where I no longer care about why we are attacked. I only care that one hundred people woke up a few mornings ago, and had no idea it was their last. When we catch the man who murdered these people, I don't care to ask even one question. I want to kill him. Do you understand?
Ronald Fleury: Yes, I do.

Adam Leavitt: How many princes are there?
Colonel Faris Al Ghazi: Over five thousand.
Ronald Fleury: Does every prince get a palace this big?
Colonel Faris Al Ghazi: Some get bigger.
Adam Leavitt: And who pays for all this?
Grant Sykes: Exxon. Chevron. Shell.

Adam Leavitt: What are four people supposed to do over there in five days, anyways?
Grant Sykes: Weren't you the one that practically demanded we go this morning?
Adam Leavitt: Yeah, I didn't say I. I said FBI.

Colonel Faris Al Ghazi: You cannot touch evidence. Please leave it. You cannot question anyone without me present, touch a dead Muslim, or leave my sight at any time. Your safety is my primary concern.
Ronald Fleury: I thought your primary concern would be the investigation.
Colonel Faris Al Ghazi: And you would be mistaken.
Grant Sykes: I think this is one of those something happens to us, his head comes off kind of deals. You're our babysitter, right?
Adam Leavitt: We call that a babysitter.

Ronald Fleury: Does he know where Bin Laden is? That would be a huge promotion for me.

Colonel Faris Al Ghazi: We need more security here before we go on.
Ronald Fleury: Are you fucking kidding me? You got a fucking army.
Colonel Faris Al Ghazi: I'm not kidding you, okay? And don't talk to me with this language.

Colonel Faris Al Ghazi: Look at me, Haytham. You saved lives today. I have no doubt about that.
Sergeant Haytham: I love my country.
Colonel Faris Al Ghazi: I know.
Sergeant Haytham: Never in my life, never have I thought to betray my country.
Colonel Faris Al Ghazi: Believe me, I know. That's why I want you to use all your energy, anger, and frustration as a tool to drive us to capture those criminals and bring them to justice.

Adam Leavitt: It's LEH-vitt, not Le' Vesque. I'm not a goddamn French-Canadian.

Grant Sykes: This whole trip is gonna be like deep sea fishing in Florida. You pay seven-hundred bucks for a boat, sit on your can out in the ocean. Crew jumps around, screams, points, throws out fish bait, you catch nothing.

Continuity mistake: When Jeremy Pivens interacts with the FBI investigators, after the 'wrong' suspected terrorists are killed, he starts to pick up an AK-47 leaning against the wall and its barrel is pointed 'up'. He is told not to and in the next shot is putting it back, but the barrel is now pointing 'down'. Not to mention the continuity flaw in the distance he appears to have moved in a millisecond.

Trivia: Throughout the movie, they refer to the terrorist bomb-maker by the name of Abu Hamza. Although this movie is a work of fiction, there is a convicted Muslim Imam preacher in the UK called Abu Hamza, who is being sought by the USA for extradition on terrorist charges, for bombing people in Jordan.
