Until the phone rang this morning Charlie, I did not know I never heard of you.

Well, ask around.

I did.

What'd you find out?

Charlie Wilson:
Anything else?
Gust Avrakotos:
That you hold more IOU's than any member of the House.
Charlie Wilson:
[laughs and smiles]
How about that.

Transcript:
Yep. I don't believe you.
I don't care.
And until the phone rang
this morning, Charlie,
I didn't know I'd never heard of you.
Well, ask around.
I did. And what'd you find out?
That your greatest legislative
achievement in six terms
was getting reelected five times.
Anything else?
That you hold more IOUs
than any member of the House.
(LAUGHING)
How about that?
I represent the only district in
America that doesn't want anything.
They want their guns, they
want low taxes, that's it.
I can do favors. I
get to vote yes a lot.
Now, me and three other
guys are killing Russians.
I mean, is it possible
that I've met the only elected
official in town who can help?
Give me a week to set things up.
Go pack a bag. I have a friend,
an arms dealer in Israel.
He's who we need for this, God help us.
Should be interesting. Yeah.
All right.
CHARLIE: We need you, Zvi.
