  • James Farrington : Tell me, sir, to what do you acribe your great good health?

    Ferguson : Hard liquor and soft women.

    [they laugh] 

  • Foster : The real problem is this, James. In two decades, there will be 7 billion human beings on this planet. Most of them brown, yellow or black, all of them hungry, all of them determined to love, and swarm out of their breeding grounds into Europe and North America. Hence, Vietnam. An all-out effort there will give us control of South Asia for decades to come. And with proper planning, we can reduce the population to 550 million by the end of the century. I know. I've sen the data.

    James Farrington : We sound rather like gods reading the Doomsday Book, don't we?

    Foster : Well, someone has to do it. Not only will the nations affected be better off, but the techniques developed there can be used to reduce our own excess population. Blacks, Puerto Ricans, Mexican-Americans, poverty-prone whites, and so forth.
