Man on the Phone: [speaking in Punjabi] You feel strong. You feel calm. There is no fear in your heart. Look across at your brothers... and see me in their eyes. You are all like sons to me. I am with you. God is with you. Paradise awaits you. God is great.

Hotel employee: Arjun. Arjun.
Arjun: Yes, sir?
Hotel employee: See the English woman over there, at the food station?
Arjun: Yes.
Hotel employee: She's worried about your beard.
Arjun: My beard?
Hotel employee: Also, your turban. Hang back in the kitchen for a little bit, huh?
Arjun: Madam, I'd... I'd like to show you something. This is my family. This is my... this is my child. It's Seva. That's my... my wife and her quite... quite awful sister.
