Oh, I know, I have been there.

Here is the United States.
Clemson Reade:

Yes, yes, I have been there too.
Effie:
We have just *one* thing in common. Oil! Every plan we make for peace or war depends on that oil.
Clemson Reade:
'That so?
Effie:
I don't have to tell you what happened in Iran. Half the free world had to learn how to pronounce the name Mosadegh.
Clemson Reade:
I still can't.
Effie:
The same thing is happening again, only this time there will a lot of new names to learn. And the only way to get that oil is to get those names on the dotted line.

Transcript:
Come over here.
Here's Bukistan.
I know, I've been there.
Here's the United States.
I've been there too.
We have just one thing in common. Oil.
Every plan we've make for peace or war
depends on that oil.
Is that so?
I don't have to tell you what happened in Iran.
Half the free world had to learn to pronounce
the name Mosaddegh.
I still can't pronounce it.
The same thing is happening again...
only this time there'll be a lot of new names to learn.
And the only way we can get that oil
is to get those names on the dotted line.
Really?
And that's why this deal is so important.
And I'm in charge, Clem,
whether you like it or not, I am in charge.
Yes, yes...
And if that's the Julliard Matron's Needlepoint Society,
I'll leave my hat.
Don't remember what you were going to say
until I get back. Be a good girl.
Sorry to break in on you, Reade,
but your phone's out of order.
I've been calling all evening.
We had a cable from Marley.
Givney's walked out. The pot's really boiling.
Givney's walked out?
Givney walked.
It must have been over his ears.
He can outweigh a pyramid.
I hate to be upsetting your evening,
but this is so hot the words
are just jumping off the papers.
Here, let me see it.
I'm afraid this is going to postpone your honeymoon.
Don't worry about it.
You see, we were right about this cookie.
Yes, but Glenson's weaker than we thought.
Dinner is ready.
Oh, start without me, Clem, I'll be right there.
No, no, no...
I don't believe you heard Annie.
Dinner is ready.
Pull up a chair, Mac.
I've eaten already.
I will have a little coffee, though.
I wish you'd go over that fourth paragraph.
Hm-hmm.
Right in here, now.
You see...
We'll have to change our tactics, I can see that.
We'll have to take part IV and put it
under the heading of Administration and Supply.
