The Insider : "You never told me you were married before… that you had a daughter."

"You never told me you were married before… that you had a daughter."

Wigand: Well how is that any of your business? That is not something you people need to know.

Bergman: Oh you know what we do and do not need to know. Since when did you become a media expert?

Wigand: What do you want to do, Lowell? Look up my ass too?

Bergman: Oh my God.

Wigand: You're not even on this anymore, what do you care?

Bergman: Jeff WAKE the uck up. Everybody is on the line here. If they can catch you in a lie, they can paint everything with that brush. Do you understand? Everything you say.

Wigand: I told the truth.

Bergman: Everything you say. And I can't defend you, man, with one hand tied behind my back because you keep from me what they can discover. And they will discover everything. Believe me.

Wigand: I was young. I was young. Confused. We didn't handle it the right way.

Bergman: She sued you for back payments of child support?

Wigand: She did not sue me. We had a dispute over money. I settled it. She dropped the complaint any other questions?

Bergman: Yes. Did you lie about being on the American Judo Team in the Olympics?

Wigand: What?

Bergman: Some public relations guy got a hold of a tape of an interview where you're saying you were on the American Judo Team in the Olympics.

Wigand: What kind of sht is this? I was not on the team, I sparred with the Olympic Team okay?

Bergman: Alright ABC Telemarketing Company?

Wigand: ABC?

Bergman: ABC Telemarketing Company.

Wigand: A can opener! A $39.95 can opener. I cancelled payment it was junk. You ever bounce a check, Lowell? You ever look at another woman's tits? You ever cheat a little on your taxes? Whose life, if you look at it under a microscope, doesn't have any flaws?

Bergman: Well that's the whole point, Jeffrey. That's the whole point. Anyone's. Everyone's. They are gonna look under every rock, dig up every flaw, every mistake you've ever made. They are going to distort and exaggerate everything you've ever done, man. Don't you understand?

Wigand: What does this have to do with my testimony?

Bergman: That's not the point.

Wigand: What does this have to do with my testimony?! I told the truth! It's valid and true and provable!

Bergman: That's not the ucking point, whether you told the truth or not! Hello?

Wigand: I told the truth I told the truth I've got to teach class. I've got to go. I've got to teach class.

Bergman: And I've got to refute every ucking accusation made in this report before The Wall Street Journal runs I am trying to protect you, man.

Wigand: Well, I hope you improve your batting average.






(wow)



Wait a minute who am I here?

Re: You never told me you were married before… that you had a daughter

Great scene thanks for transcribing it all! You should put some of this in the IMDB "Movie Quotes" section or maybe you did already.

Re: You never told me you were married before… that you had a daughter

Thanks. Took a while to do, but well worth it.

One of my all-time favorite scenes.

I can't believe how incredible those two are together, and in a scene that takes place over the phone.

I'll see if IMDb will add it to their quote section.

The whole movie is gold.

This has to one of if not the most under appreciated American films of this generation of filmmakers.

Re: You never told me you were married before… that you had a daughter

Reading this scene has me desperate to watch this again! How this film isn't in the Top 250 is beyond me. Really top notch film making. Pacino and Crowe should work together again, they could kick start each others careers.

Totally agree with you.
To me this movie is top notch not only on the story side but also on the entertainment side, it is very entertaining to watch (sad sometimes, but overall entertaining)
Sometimes I wonder if Mr. Mann and the movie company got any problems from the tobacco companies (we knew the real Mr. Wygand did). They (the latter) are so rich

Re: "You never told me you were married before…

Did you notice the guy who investigated Wigand's first marriage walks past in the school hallway!

Re: "You never told me you were married before… that you had a daughter."

This is proof that this is a great movie. It deserves to be seen/remembered by all.
