John Hay:
Not having any, Mr. President?



Theodore Roosevelt:
Oh, no cake for me, John, birthday or no. Have to remain fit and trim, vigorous and active. After all, this Raisuli fellow is reputed to be over fifty and still a formidable brigand.



John Hay:
Well, you might well make a formidable brigand yourself. You've made a good start in life, and we all have high hopes for you - when you grow up! And now I shall have some of your cake. "Let them eat cake" - thank you!



Theodore Roosevelt:
Not good for you, John - neither are those cigars.



John Hay:
At my age, I can afford it.

Theodore Roosevelt:
[to Hay, while boxing] You know as well as I do that we can't have Arab desperadoes running around kidnapping American citizens. If I had my way, I'd go in there with a couple of Winchesters, a batallion of Marines - but, I can't do that, can I?



John Hay:
[breaks up Roosevelt and his opponent] No.



Theodore Roosevelt:
Has this Raspuli-?



John Hay:
Raisuli.



Theodore Roosevelt:
Raspuli, Raisuli, whatever - has he made any terms?



John Hay:
No.



Theodore Roosevelt:
Good - that gives us an excuse!

Theodore Roosevelt:
[examining a rifle he has received for his birthday] You can be sure that Raisuli fellow has a rifle that fits him. Those people know the value of a good weapon. The rifle is the very soul of the Arab.

Raisuli:
[during the final battle, Eden finds him tied upside down] Ah, Mrs. Perdicaris! The Baraka has not deserted me!

Cut me down quick before it does.
