QuotesAdd a Quote
That was a recording of Mozart's Concerto in A Major played by Viktor Bajevski, the East German virtuoso who yesterday escaped over the Berlin Wall.
-Escape? They probably paid him to leave.
How can you work for that dreadful man?
I like weeds.
-Yes, they're easy to grow.
Not at all. You have to keep the flowers out, defend the strong against the weak. A garden should be like a country lane, a place you can walk in. Not with flower beds laid out like a cemetery.
How did you beat the rap?
-I didn't. It was either jail or work for Ross. He thought a crook like me
would be wasted inside.
Do you play chess?
- Yes. But I prefer a game with more chance of cheating.
I like you, English. You're not as stupid as you look.
For you it is a propaganda victory. My name is worth a headline!
-We get plenty of Russians. It's a pity you're not Chinese.
Why don't you go to the Americans? They have more money.
-Who wants to live in America? They are just Russians in pressed trousers!
Revolutionaries gone decadent!
I've read your T105. Entertaining, but slightly pornographic. The fact you pick up a girl doesn't make her a spy.
-It was she who picked me up, sir.
I don't care much for Berlin, sir. You're liable to get shot.
-That's what you're paid for, isn't it?
Dead Nazis keep re-emerging!
-I see, it's the old eye for an eye bit.
No. There's a lot of cash in Switzerland that they stole from the Jews. Israel is morally and legally entitled to that money.
You can go to East Berlin?
-It's only forbidden to West Berliners. I'm not a Berliner. I'm a West German.
If there is a mistake, the Grepos will be shooting at me.
-That'll be nice. You'll find out what it's like to be an East German.
You are insolent!
-Do you think this job, this loathsome wall, is all I've done for Communism? Does Smolensk mean anything to you, or Stalingrad?
I look at your stupid face and I think you mean what you say.
-I like you. You're good at your job. You need only one thing.
-A reason for doing it.
I get paid.
-30 a week? Is it worth it? To be a tool of the generals? A tool for making trouble? Trouble makes arms, arms make money...
When you get to England, we'll give you a soapbox.
I was with Antonov-Ovseenko at the storming of the Winter Palace in 1917. You know what that means in Russia?
-Yes, I think so.
It means you're an expendable hero.
Do you mean Her Majesty's Government employs ex-Nazis, sir?
-And thieves, Palmer.
Get rid of him.
-I'm not killing anybody in cold blood.
Then provoke him, if that's going to satisfy your scruples. Alright, Palmer, you've had your orders. Get on with it.
I'm not a judge at a war crimes trial.
That loan you wanted to buy a car, how much was it?
Well, I think you've earned it.
-No, thank you, sir. I'll walk.
