    • Moukta: (taking the diamond from Clare's hand) The penalty in my country for theft is to cut off the offending hand at the wrist.

    • Hassan: Are you not afraid of the fat one?
      Drake: Why, should I be?
      Hassan: He has great magic. His powers are many.
      Drake: What could he do to me?
      Hassan: Turn you into a camel!
      Drake: Oh, then I could go for three days without drinking, huh?

    • Spooner: It's not my fault that your song and dance routine are not appreciated by the locals or if they prefer some cruder form of entertainment. You forget, you were out of work when I found you, Miss Nichols.
      Clare: Yeah, and I was 500 miles closer to civilization there.
      Spooner: Well, you were 500 miles nearer to your home, should we say? This is not a woman's country, Miss Nichols. You have need of a protector.

    • Drake: (voice-over) Men have died, nations have split themselves asunder on the terrible rock of slavery. Yet, it still exists today. Word had reached the United Nations Council that the age-old bartering in human lives was flourishing behind the great wastes of the Arabian Desert. Slaves were being stolen from along the coast and sold to the chieftains like cattle in the market. These coastal peoples have their own very definite facial characteristics; some close-up photographs of them, taken on the spot, would be identification and proof enough of their slavery.
