Quotes from the Movie Dave

She's great. She's really exotic! She's a princess! She's Polynesian well, half Polynesian, and half American. She's... Amnesian.

Dave Kovic

Hail to the chief / He's the one we all say "Hail" to. / We all say "Hail" / 'Cause he keeps himself so clean! / He's got the power, / That's why he's in the shower...

Dave Kovic

If you've ever seen the look on somebody's face the day they finally get a job, I've had some experience with this, they look like they could fly. And its not about the paycheck, it's about respect, it's about looking in the mirror and knowing that you've done something valuable with your day. And if one person could start to feel this way, and then another person, and then another person, soon all these other problems may not seem so impossible. You don't really know how much you can do until you, stand up and decide to try.

Dave Kovic

I forgot that I was hired to do a job for you and that it was just a temp job at that. I forgot that I had two hundred and fifty million people who were paying me to make their lives a little better and I didn't live up to my part of the bargain. See, there are certain things you should expect from a President. I ought to care more about you than I do about me... I ought to care more about what's right than I do about what's popular. I ought to be willing to give this whole thing up for something I believe in.

Dave Kovic

You know, I've always wondered about you guys. You know, about how you're trained to take a bullet for the president?

Dave

Is that really true? I mean, would you let yourself be killed to save his life?

Dave

So, now that means you'd get killed for me too.

Dave

I don't want to tell some eight-year-old kid he's gotta sleep in the street because we want people to feel better about their car. Do you want to tell them that?

Dave

What? Oh, you mean the press conference. I had a couple of ideas that I wanted to share with the country.

Dave

You mean, when I'm not running the country?

Dave

I run a temp agency. You know, secretaries and stuff.

Dave

Bob, at some point we're gonna have to call the Vice President.

Alan Reed

This is mine, Alan. All mine. I made him, I built him. And no Boy Scout is going to come in here and take it away from me, just because he happens to be Vice President of the United States.

Alan Reed

He's not a President. He's an ordinary person. I can kill an ordinary person.

Alan Reed

Share? Share? You don't call a press conference. I call a press conference. You're nothing. Do you understand? You're nobody.

Alan Reed
