In order to prevent a ruthless African dictator from remaining in power, Jaime must secretly switch a rigged computer element with one that will give fair results in an upcoming election.




Jaime: Harry, do you know of anyone else with a boat who could take me upriver?

Harry: You're out of luck. I've got the only other one around here.

Jaime: Well, then, it looks like I make a deal with you.

Harry: Forget it. I told you what happened to Jeff.

Jaime: Well, yes, but that...

Harry: Nothing you can say or do is gonna get me off my butt, through that door, and out to my boat.

Jaime: Five thousand dollars.

Harry: You've got a deal.

Harry: Arrangements have a way of getting screwed up in this part of the world, cookie.

Harry: How about that? Well first a hangover saved my life and now a shot of booze gives me the strength of a bull elephant. My life must be changing.

Harry: Didn't think The Princess had it in her? What do you think of her now?

Jaime: Old war trucks never die.

Harry: Don't like to admit you're wrong, do you?

Jaime: Nope, it's been a problem since childhood.

Duma: For my friends I offer food and shelter. My enemies are not deserving of my kindness. Now which are you?

Leona: Jaime, I want to thank you for all you have done, but... we will take it from here.

Jaime: Well... I really think I can do it better myself.

Leona: Why? Because you are white?

Jaime: No!

Leona: Blacks are tired of depending on whites to solve our problems! We have been betrayed too many times. We don't need outside help anymore.

Jaime: If it's alright with you, I will change my clothes and go back to work.

Leona: Yes, of course.

Jaime: (looks down at her dress in chagrin) Too bad. I was almost starting to feel feminine again.


  • Unusually for Jaime, when faced with a firing squad, she tells Harry that she may be able to get out alive, but she would have to leave him to be shot.
