"You Obviously Don't Know Anything About Intelligence Work....."



Wendy (Maria Aitkin): "If it's a secret, then why are you telling everyone?"

Otto (Kevin Kline): "It's a smoke screen..."

Wendy (Maria Aitkin): "What?!"

Otto (Kevin Kline): "A double bluff. Look! You obviously don't know anything about intelligence work, lady. It's an XK red 27 technique. "

Wendy (Maria Aitkin): "My father was in the secret service, Mr. Munfredshedsen and I know perfectly well that you don't keep the general public informed, when you are debriefing KGB defectors in a safe house."

Otto (Kevin Kline): "Oh, you don't, huh?"

Wendy (Maria Aitkin): "Not unless you are congenitally insane or irretrievably stupid; no!" 

Otto (Kevin Kline): "Don't call me stupid!"

A Fish Called Wanda (1988)  Directed by John Cleese and Charles Crichton
