Quotes from Chiwetel Ejiofor's Characters

    1. Adrian Helmsley: There's a young astrophysicist from India who's the reason we're all here. He's the one who discovered it all. He connected all the dots. We all owe him our lives. I just learned that he was killed with his family in a tsunami in Eastern India. He was my friend. And he died in vain. Everybody out there has died in vain if we start our future with an act of cruelty. What will you tell your children? What will they tell theirs.
    2. Laura Wilson: If my father were here, he would open the gates.
    3. President Sergey Makarenko: The people of Russia along with China, and Japan agree. Open the gates.
    4. German Chancellor: The United Kingdom, Spain, France, Canada, Germany and I believe I may also speak for the Italian Prime Minister we vote to let these people come in.
