Consulate Envoy: What can I do for you today?
Leo Getz: Okay, I have this problem, this very delicate matter. I have a friend of mine, wants to emigrate to South Africa.
Consulate Envoy: Yes, of course. I can certainly help him do that.
Leo Getz: Oh sure. But I want you to talk him out of it.
Consulate Envoy: Talk him out of it?
Leo Getz: Yeah.
Consulate Envoy: Whatever for?
Leo Getz: W-well, you see, this is such a bad time for him to go to South Africa. I mean with all the trouble and everything, okay.
Consulate Envoy: Look, why don't you ask your friend to come back later in the week. We can sit down-
Leo Getz: No, he's here. He's here.
Consulate Envoy: He's here?
Leo Getz: Yeah, he's here now.
Consulate Envoy: Where?
Leo Getz: Alphonse! Alphonse?
[Murtaugh comes around the corner. Cheerfully oblivious]
Roger Murtaugh: How you doing?
Consulate Envoy: [Dumbstruck] I think there must be some mistake.
Roger Murtaugh: Say what?
Consulate Envoy: Sir, listen to your friend, here. He knows what he's talking about. I don't think you want to go to South Africa.
Roger Murtaugh: Why not?
Consulate Envoy: B-Because you're black.
Leo Getz: [To Murtaugh] You are. [To Envoy] He is.
