Jemima Brown Quotes in The Eiger Sanction (1975)


Jemima Brown Quotes:

  • Jonathan Hemlock: I can't believe that you're a stewardess.

    Jemima Brown: Actually I'm not, I'm a skyjacker in a drag.

    Jonathan Hemlock: Oh, that's reassuring, just give your name and I report you to the proper authorities when we land.

    Jemima Brown: Jemima

    Jonathan Hemlock: And I'm Uncle Ben...

    Jemima Brown: I'm serious, that's really my name... Jemima Brown, my mother was hooked on being ethnic.

    Jonathan Hemlock: Or else turned on by a pancake. As long as we both agree that it's to much for a black chick to have the name of Jemima.

    Jemima Brown: Well I don't know, I mean people don't forget you when you name is Jemima.

    Jonathan Hemlock: I don't think people would forget you if your name was Alfred.

  • Dr. Jonathan Hemlock: It's dangerous, child, to come to conclusions when you don't have any facts. Now let me lay some on you. Sure Dragon knows what he's doing, just like he knew what he was doing when he worked for the Nazis during World War II.

    Jemima Brown: What?

    Dr. Jonathan Hemlock: Oh, you didn't know that, did you? Yes your "wrap him up in red, white, and blue" Mr. Dragon's a goddamn Hessian, that's what he is. And he'd sell out the other side as fast as he'd sell out our side. And he'd sell out his mother, too, if the bloodless freak had one.

  • Dr. Jonathan Hemlock: You think it's so awful the other side has a germ formula? It's against the Geneva Convention, isn't it, and they stole it from us. Well what the hell are we doing with it in the first place? We're not supposed to have one either.

    Jemima Brown: And you don't see any difference between their side and our side?

    Dr. Jonathan Hemlock: Yeah, I see a difference. But as long as we have Dragon and Pope working for us, how bad can the other side be?

  • Jemima Brown: Is this hotel always so crowded?

    Dr. Jonathan Hemlock: Only when there's a climb. Then the Eiger birds start flocking in.

    Jemima Brown: Eiger birds?

    Dr. Jonathan Hemlock: Yeah, jet setters, assorted zombies, come here to watch a climb. If they're lucky, they get to see a man die on the mountain.

    Jemima Brown: That's grim.

    Dr. Jonathan Hemlock: So's the Eiger.

  • [Referring to Hemlock's written assessment]

    Jemima Brown: Crap?

    Jonathan Hemlock: Excuse me? You did just start this conversation off by saying crap didn't you?

  • Jemima Brown: Friends? Enemies? Where do I fit in?

    Jonathan Hemlock: I'm sorry, but you don't. Here's to the selfish killer and the patriotic whore! Do you have anything else to say? I usually keep a twenty in the bowl by the door. You might pick it up on the way out!

  • Jemima Brown: Fasten your seat belt, sir.

    Jonathan Hemlock: Oh, I have no intention of trying to escape.

  • Jonathan Hemlock: They kill one of ours, we kill the killers. No purpose at all, just barbaric.

    Jemima Brown: You're getting religion a little late.

    Jonathan Hemlock: I didn't quit because of religion, I quit because of mathematics.

    Jemima Brown: Oh?

    Jonathan Hemlock: That's right. The odds are stacking up against me. Assassins who stay too long wind up getting assassinated, and that ain't in my game plan.

  • [last lines]

    Jonathan Hemlock: You know that art collection of mine's not going to get any bigger, but I'd sure like to have you take a long look at it.

    Jemima Brown: I thought you'd never ask. I'll get two tickets. Jonathan, you can tell me. You didn't really sanction all three of them, did you?

    Jonathan Hemlock: [just a long hard look]

  • Jemima Brown: Shabby research I can stand, but involuted style really makes my ass drag!
