Bob Roberts Quotes

Giancarlo Esposito as Bugs Raplin

  • (Giancarlo Esposito) "The reason that Iran-Contra happened is because nobody did anything substantial about Watergate. And the reason that Watergate happened is that there were no consequences from the Bay of Pigs. They are all the same operatives, didn't you notice? The foot soldiers in the Bay of Pigs, the plumbers that got busted at Watergate, the gunrunners in Iran contra: they are all the same people. The same faces. Now it doesn't take a genius to make the connection here. A secret government beyond the control of the people and accountable to no-one. And the closer we are to discovering the connection, the more the Congress turns a blind eye to it. "We can't talk about that in open session." they say. "National security reasons". The truth lies dormant in their laps and they stay blind out of choice. A conspiracy of silence."

James Spader as Chuck Marlin

  • (James Spader) "I could use a strong finisher myself sometimes"

Tim Robbins as Bob Roberts

  • (Tim Robbins) "Don't smoke crack. It's a ghetto drug."
