Sayid Quote #8

Quote from Sayid in Managers' Conference

Sayid: I was fleeing the civil war in Syria.
Cheyenne: Whoa, what was Syria like?
Sayid: Not good. Seriously, not good.
Glenn: Yeah, there's all sorts of, like, rampant destruction and beheadings and locusts, right?
Sayid: Yes, though the locusts had nothing to do with the war. They're a seasonal nuisance.
Dina: Hey, what are your thoughts on the movie, Syriana?
Sayid: I thought George Clooney was pretty okay, and Matt Damon was just okay.

Quote from Mateo

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.

Quote from Glenn

Cheyenne: Well, I've heard that E-Verify is full of bugs. Just lots and lots of bugs.
Glenn: They're not bugs, Cheyenne. They're human beings.

Quote from Cloud 9 Academy

All: [chant] Hey, hey, ho, ho, Duterte's gotta go. Hey, hey...
Sayid: Wow, you guys got the news to show up. Doesn't that make you nervous?
Mateo: Not really. I'm just one of those people that shines through the lens.
Sayid: If it were me, I'd probably be thinking, "Sayid, don't criticize the government on camera, because if it doesn't work and you do get deported, you're definitely getting tortured and murdered over there." Anyway, I'm gonna go play Pokemon Go. I hear there's a Snorlax near the loading dock.

Quote from Cloud Green

Sayid: Were you also the one who replaced the straws with these paper things?
Jonah: Yes.
