    • QUOTES (3)

      • Zoe: (about Amira) I think it's good she's using her fame to do something positive.
        Kessler: Collecting orphans for photo ops. Really positive.
        Zoe: I don't know, Dad. How many kids have you saved lately?

      • Kessler: Zoe, it's my job to protect you. People always look harmless, right up until the moment they try to harm you.
        Zoe: Do you know how messed-up that sounds?
        Kessler: I have seen people who've lived in peace for over 30 years start killing each other overnight. I can't just turn that off.
        Zoe: Careful, Dad. You almost said Bosnia.
        Kessler: (pause) Are you hungry?
        Zoe: I could eat.

      • Slade: Calling Darfur a hellhole? That's an insult to hellholes.
