Quote from Mateo in Managers' Conference
Mateo: So Syria, huh?
Sayid: Why does everyone here start conversations like that?
Mateo: Ha. You know, I'm actually an immigrant, too. Not a refugee, like you. Knock on wood. [knocks twice] Just a regular, undocumented immigrant. Or is it "documented"? I'm always mixing those up. I think it's like inflammable-flammable, where they mean the same thing?
Sayid: No, they're opposites.
Mateo: Anyway, I'm definitely the legal kind. Came here legally, took the citizenship test, got sworn in by the president.
Sayid: The president swore you in?
Mateo: Uh-huh, yeah. Yeah. They, um... They do it personally. At least they used to.
Sayid: Which president?
Mateo: God, it's been so long, I don't even remember. One of the white ones? I wanna say... Henderson.
