This is the best bad plan we have, sir.

Tony Mendez

Jack O'Donnell: Carter said you were a great American.
Tony Mendez: A great American what?
Jack O'Donnell: He didn't say.

Brace yourself; it's like talking to those two old fucks from The Muppets.

Jack O'Donnell

Tony Mendez: We are responsible for these people.
Jack O'Donnell: What we are is required to follow orders.

Bad news, bad news. Even when it's good news, it's bad news. John Wayne in the ground 6 months and this is what is left of America.

Lester Siegel

John Chambers: [after hearing of the plan to get the hostages out] So you want to come to Hollywood, act like a big shot...
Tony Mendez: Yeah.
John Chambers: ...without actually doing anything?
Tony Mendez: Yeah.
John Chambers: [smiles] You'll fit right in!

[after quizzing the hostages on their fake bios and the one hostage paused] Shoot him, he's an American Spy!

Tony Mendez

If I'm going to make a fake movies, it's going to be a fake hit.

Lester Siegel

[to Tony Mendez] The whole country is watching you, they just don't know it

Jack O'Donnell

[to Tony Mendez] You need somebody who's a somebody to put their name on it. Somebody respectable. With credits. Who you can trust with classified information. Who will produce a fake movie. For free.

John Chambers

Look, if you're going to do this, you're going to do this... You can't build cover stories around a movie that doesn't exist. You need a script, you need a producer.

John Chambers

Argo fuck yourself.
