As long as the press sees sex and drugs behind the left hand, you can park a battle carrier behind the right hand and no one's gonna fucking notice.

[after smashing his boss's office window] My loyalty! For twenty four years people have been trying to kill me! People who know how. Now do you think that's because my dad was a Greek soda pop maker? Or do you think that's because I'm an American spy? Go fuck yourself, you fucking child!

JOANNE HERRING
May I ask what it is that I've done to make you dislike me, Mr. Avrakotos?
GUST AVRAKOTOS
I like you just fine, Mrs. Herring, it's just been my experience that when people with money and too much free time get involved in politics, pretty soon, I forget who it is I'm supposed to be shooting at.

Were you standing at the goddamn door listening to me? How could you even - That is a thick door! You stood there and you listened to me?
GUST AVRAKOTOS
I didn't stand at the door. Don't be an idiot. I bugged the Scotch bottle.
CHARLIE WILSON
What!
GUST AVRAKOTOS
It's got a little transmitter on it, I've got a little thing in my ear, get past it.

Promises were made!
CRAVELY
Not by me.
GUST AVRAKOTOS
I've been with the company for twenty-four years. I was posted in Greece for fifteen. I've advised and armed the Hellenic Army. I've neutralized champions of communism. I've spent the past three years... learning *Finnish!* Which would come in handy here in Virginia, and I'm never ever sick at sea. So I wanna know why... I'm not gonna be your Helsinki station chief.

CRAVELY
And I don't know why the hell I didn't fire you when you broke my fucking window.
GUST AVRAKOTOS
Oh yes sure you do Cravely.
CRAVELY
Look Gust!
GUST AVRAKOTOS
Yeah you're fucking Roger's fiance, and you know I know.
CRAVELY
I'm not... I'm not... I'm not even gonna dignify that with a response.
GUST AVRAKOTOS
Yeah yeah, you're dignifying her in the ass, at the Jefferson Hotel, Room 1210, but let me ask you, the 3000 agents Turner fired, was that because they lacked diplomatic skills as well?

You're no Thomas Jefferson, either. Let's call it even.

Then, a war breaks out and all the young men have to go off and fight... except the boy can't cause his legs all messed up. and everybody in the village says, "How wonderful."
CHARLIE WILSON
Now the Zen master says, "We'll see."
