Theodore Roosevelt:
Gentlemen, nothing in this world is certain - absolutely nothing. The fate of the nation will be decided by the American people in November, and the fate of Morocco will be decided tomorrow by me. And now, if you don't mind, I'd just like to be alone with my bear!

Capt. Jerome, USMC:
It seems quite obvious, I would think, sir - we must seize the government and make our own negotiations.



Gummere:
[incredulous] Seize the government?



Capt. Jerome, USMC:
At BAYONET point!



Gummere:
[snidely; to Dreighton] Well, I certainly would like to see that old son-of-a-bitch at bayonet point, huh?


[chuckles]



Gummere:
But it's ridiculous; it's outrageous, it's lunatic!



Adm. Chadwick:
Yes, isn't it though? I think Teddy should love it!



Gummere:
But, what about the French, the Germans - the British? Why we're in the shadow of Gibraltar!



Adm. Chadwick:
[slams his hand on table and stands up] DAMN THE LEGATIONS!



Gummere:
[uneasily] You realize, of course, that if we fail in even the slightest way, we'll all be killed?



Adm. Chadwick:
Yes, and the whole world will probably go to war.



Capt. Jerome, USMC:
Gentlemen, if we fail and are killed, I certainly hope the world DOES go to war!


[raises glass as a toast]



Adm. Chadwick:
The world at war!



Gummere:
A world war? Now THAT would be something to go out on...

John Hay:
That's illegal.



Theodore Roosevelt:
Why spoil the beauty of the thing with legality?
