Why don't you just go do it?" So I tell my boss I have a dentist appointment, and go down to the registrar of voters on my lunch break -- next thing I know I'm a councilman."

  • (Kevin Kline) "What?"
  • (Ben Kingsley) "How did you get started?"

  • (Kevin Kline) "I'm the President, and as they say, the buck stops here. So I take full responsibility for each one of my illegal actions. But that's not the whole story. I think the American people are entitled to the real truth."
  • (Kevin Kline) "I have here evidence in the form of notes, letters, and written memoranda, proving that Bob Alexander was involved in each of these illegal acts, and in most cases planned them as well."
  • (Frank Langella) "Alan."
  • (Kevin Kline) "Now, allegations of wrongdoing have also been made against Vice President Nance. Now, as this evidence will prove, at no time and in no way was the Vice President involved in any of this affair. Bob just made all that up. Vice President Nance is a good and decent public servant, and I want to apologize for any pain that this has caused him or his family."

  • (Kevin Kline) "If you've ever seen the look on somebody's face the day they finally get a job, I've had some experience with this, they look like they could fly. And its not about the paycheck, it's about respect, it's about looking in the mirror and knowing that you've done something valuable with your day. And if one person could start to feel this way, and then another person, and then another person, soon all these other problems may not seem so impossible. You don't really know how much you can do until you, stand up and decide to try."
  • (Kevin Kline) "I mean she's the first lady. I mean couldn't I have started with a cousin?"
  • (Kevin Kline) "Let's get back to work."
