You see. You are a doctor and a philosopher. Yes, I do have a good life now. Please, please. Sit here. I come from a very poor family, I think you should know this. My father left me when I was a child. The British Army; became my home. They took me as a cleaner, in the kitchens, cleaning pots. They used to beat me.

Idi Amin

[in British accent] "Beat this wall, Amin." "Dig the latreen, Amin." And now, here I am. The President of Uganda. And who put me here, huh? It was the British.

Idi Amin

Idi Amin: Before I forget, I need to ask you a favor.
Nicholas Garrigan: Anything.
Idi Amin: I will be in Libya next week, and I need you to attend a meeting in my place.
Nicholas Garrigan: What kind of meeting?
Idi Amin: A simple matter of taste and common sense. I cannot think of anyone better than you.

They take you to a tree and hang you by your skin. Each time you scream the evil comes out of you. Sometimes, it can take three days for your evil to be spent. Pull him up.

Idi Amin

Nicholas Garrigan: I can't. It fucking stinks. I can't help coming back to that moment when I asked you to talk to him. This isn't me. I have to go home now.
Idi Amin: You cannot.
Nicholas Garrigan: What?
Idi Amin: Your work is not finished here yet.

Idi Amin: You promised to me you would help me build a new Uganda. You swore an oath.
Nicholas Garrigan: The oath is... erm... it's, it's a doctor’s oath of confidentiallity; we all take it. It's got nothing to do with Uganda.
Idi Amin: Huh? Nothing? Nothing comes from nothing. You have a conscience, I know you do. That is why you came here in the first place. Or are you like all the other British. Just here to fuck and to take away? No? Why else would I trust you with my family? You are like my own son.

Don't worry, Penny. There's still plenty of time to get pregnant and go on welfare.

Anne Marie

Idi Amin: I am ashamed that you saw me like that. I was frightened.
Nicholas Garrigan: I'm a doctor. Everything that passes between us is confidential. Okay? I've taken an oath.
Idi Amin: But a man that shows fear... he is weak, and he is a slave.
Nicholas Garrigan: Well... if you're afraid of dying... shows you have a life worth keeping.

[about her husband] He cannot trust anybody anymore.

Kay Amin

Girl on Bus: Do you have monkeys in Scotland?
Nicholas Garrigan: No, but if we did we'd probably deep fry them!

Apology accepted. But only because you stammered.

Ana Pascal

Eowyn: I will kill you if you touch him!
Witch King: Do not come between the Nazgul and his prey.
