Selina: It's like six degrees of Al-Qaeda in here. I hope we don't drone this place while we're in it.

Gary: That's Colonel Omar Al-Saleh. He's a Sudanese warlord. You cannot have a photo with him.
Selina: He's dressed like a doorman.

Selina: You don't just forget English. He just went full Chinaman on me.

Selina: What is the opposite of a warlord?
Richard: A peace lady?

Amy: Srey Lim, she's a Cambodian rights activist.
Selina: Perfect.
Amy: Oh, she was born with no legs.
Selina: What? Well, that's not gonna work, is it? How can I even do a walk and talk?

Jonah: And plus, the day after Daylight Saving Time, you're all messed up. One time, my mom brought in my breakfast an hour late like an idiot, so I just threw it on the floor and I said, "Mom, if I wanted to eat this, I would've eaten it an hour ago." But it threw off my whole bathroom schedule and I ended up having to poop in a Sunoco bathroom.

Buzzy: I call it Yoloha. It's a combination of YOLO and aloha.
Dan: Well, Buzzy, I think it's rad. Which is a combination of retarded and sad.

Selina: I don't know what this is. Is it something that you eat or is it something you already ate?

Gary: We are surrounded by land mines. You're just like Princess Di. But with a better nose, of course.
Selina: Oh, stop it.
Gary: You are!
Selina: Okay, you know what? Why don't you just go ahead, though?

Furlong: You know, Will here can't eat cheese. What happens when you eat cheese, Will?
Will: I go poo-poo in my panty-wanties.

Furlong: Fine, dinner, my house. Will one of you please bathe and dress him (Jonah)?
Ben: I call dress. Sorry, Kent.

Gary: Oh, my! Look at those curtains. Where can I get those?
Nyaring: I made them from my husband's death shroud.
Gary: Wow, look at you!
Selina: What a touching tribute, Nyaring.
Nyaring: No, it was a purposeful desecration of the man who beat and raped me.
Selina: Well, they go with everything.

Amy: There seems to be a problem with the plane.
Selina: What?
Richard: You know that little animal that Nathan Lane plays in "The Lion King"?
Gary: Oh, I love that guy!
Richard: Uh, so, three of those got caught in the engine.

Selina: I have to find out, what's Qatari for "morning after pill"?
Gary: Oh, my God.
Selina: It's probably a stoning, which would also do the trick.

Mike: Ben says Qataris are very good at inserting themselves.
Selina: You got that right.

Selina: Last time I checked, my political career had answered a Craigs List ad for a modeling shoot in the Angeles National Forest.

(Helicopter blades whirring)
Jaffar: Ah! Here's the Chinese.
Selina: Hmmm. Look, even their blinker is on.

Selina: Unless you're planning on knitting your semiconductors out of bamboo shoots and panda c*ck, you're gonna need every ounce of gallium you can get in Sudan.
Lu: Well, there are other sources.
Selina: Rots of ruck with that.

Selina: Confucius say fu**, yeah!

Selina: Isn't this a rush or what? Don't you feel it? (Jaffar pours champagne) I just want a tiny, tiny bit. I don't want this whole evening to go all Natalie Wood on me.

Selina: Mohammad H. Christ, that's my dissident.

Selina: What happened to the little girl who served us tea? I don't see her.
Nyaring: Oh, she was married to the village elder.
Selina: Ah.
Nyaring: Saturday.
Selina: Well, please send along my congratulations.

Mike: Turns out it wasn't zinc oxide. I was wearing cocoa butter.
Gary: You look like redheaded bacon.

Ben: Second goddamn floor, I can't even commit suicide.
Kent: I got a key to the roof. We could do a Butch-Sundance.
Ben: Nah, I'll just wait for cancer.
