    • QUOTES (5)

      • Reilly: As you know, I spent last night with Anna. I want all reference to this expunged from your files.

      • d'Anjou: There's always diplomacy, my dear fellow.
        Reilly: Yes, that is true. But you must remember that only two powers have any influence in Persia: the Russians, and the English. Now the Russians are not likely to view a French invasion with any enthusiasm, and as for the English, they will wreck anything that is not in their interest.

      • Reilly: The cathedral will have to be reconstructed over the graves of my fellow priests.
        Rothschild: Graves?
        Reilly: Cut down protecting innocent women and children. The church will house their relics. We shall also need a new cemetery for the others, built in the Gothic style, of course. It, uh, goes down well in the jungle.

      • Reilly: Is it is my belief that a civilized man would murder his mother before he's rude to a priest. He may loathe Rome and proclaim himself an atheist, but he'd sooner give up his seat on a tram to a man of God than to a blind woman.

      • Reilly: I told Father what I thought of him, that he was a fraud and a bigot and a bad shot. It was the last that nearly unhinged him.
