J.J. Blodgett:
We don't need an export licence. We're gonna bypass all that bull...
Wendell Armbruster:
Bypass, how can you do it?
J.J. Blodgett:
No sweat. We're appointing your father commercial attaché to the embassy in Rome, and that entitles him to all the rights and immunities of a diplomat.
Wendell Armbruster:
But wait a minute, we're going to appoint him...
J.J. Blodgett:
Why not?
Wendell Armbruster:
A dead man?
J.J. Blodgett:
Just proves that we don't discriminate against anybody for reasons of race, creed, color, or state of health.

Transcript:
We don't need an export license.
We're gonna bypass
all that bull.
Bypass?
How can you do it?
No sweat. We're
appointing your father...
commercial attach
to the embassy in Rome.
And that entitles him
to all the rights...
and immunities of a diplomat.
Wait a minute.
You're going to appoint him...
- Why not?
- A dead man?
Just proves that we don't
discriminate against anybody...
for reasons of race, creed,
color, or state of health.
You mean we handle him
just like a diplomatic pouch?
You bet. He goes
right through customs...
sealed coffin, no inspection,
no formalities at either end.
- That's kind of cute.
- That's nothing.
Someday I'll tell you
how we got Batista out of Cuba.
First on the agenda...
First, you wanted to go
to the can.
Can. That's right.
I'm sorry.
Mother would never forgive me.
Look at the wretched job
I did on your nails.
Tell me something.
Bruno's body.
What did they do with it?
