Tex:
You decided to fly at a bad time, Billy. They're guerrillas all over the place blowing up planes and all.
Billy Hayes:
It's stupid.
Tex:
Kids don't read the newspapers and that there are people kickin' up a shitstorm about the flow of heroin from Turkey you got.
Billy Hayes:
I didn't have heroin.
Tex:
I'm not up on all that. A drug's a drug, seems to me, Billy.
Billy Hayes:
It was my first time. I'm not really a smuggler. It was only two kilos.
Tex:
You can see right now, it don't really matter, do it, if it was two kilos or if it was two hundred. The Turks love to catch any foreigner. It shows the world they're fighting the drug trade.
Billy Hayes:
Are you with the consulate?
Tex:
Somethin' like that.
