Quotes from the Movie Hotel Rwanda

The United Nations are here now. The world press are watching. The peace has been signed. Let this process work.

Paul Rusesabagina

Tatiana, all day I work to please this officer, diplomat, or some other guests to store up favors so if there is a time we need help I have powerful people I can call upon.

Paul Rusesabagina

These days, I have not time for rallies or politics.

Paul Rusesabagina

There will be no rescue, no intervention force. We can only save ourselves. Many of you know influential people abroad, you must call these people. You must tell them what will happen to us... say goodbye. But when you say goodbye, say it as though you are reaching through the phone and holding their hand. Let them know that if they let go of that hand, you will die. We must shame them into sending help.

Paul Rusesabagina

We're here as peace keepers, not peace makers.

Colonel Oliver

You should spit in my face.

Colonel Oliver

Youíre dirt. We think youíre dirt, Paul.

Colonel Oliver

The West. All the super powers. Everything you believe in, Paul. They think youíre dirt. They think youíre dumb. Youíre worthless.

Colonel Oliver

I am afraid I don't understand what you are saying, sir.

Paul

Oh, come on, Paul, you're the smartest man here. You got 'em all eating out of your hands. You could own this frigging hotel, except for one thing. You're black. You're not even a nigger. You're an African. Theyíre not going to stay, Paul. Theyíre not going to stop this slaughter.

Colonel Oliver

When people ask me, good listeners, why do I hate all the Tutsi, I say, "Read our history." The Tutsi were collaborators for the Belgian colonists, they stole our Hutu land, they whipped us. Now they have come back, these Tutsi rebels. They are cockroaches. They are murderers. Rwanda is our Hutu land. We are the majority. They are a minority of traitors and invaders. We will squash this infestation. We will wipe out the RPF rebels. This is RTLM, Hutu power radio. Stay alert. Watch your neighbours. Politics is power Paul, Hutu power.

George Rutaganda

Oh, God, I'm so ashamed!

Jack

Please don't let them kill me. I... I promise I won't be Tutsi anymore.

Pat Archer

You cannot seriously think that you can kill them all.

Paul

And why not? We are halfway there already.

George
