Eric Porter as Colonel Rodin and Edward Fox as The Jackal

Colonel Rodin: We are not terrorists, you understand. We are patriots. Our duty is to the soldiers who died fighting in Algeria and to the 3 million French citizens who have always lived there.
The Jackal: And so, you want to get rid of him.
Colonel Rodin: Speaking as a professional, would you think it’s possible?
The Jackal: It’s possible. The point is getting away with it… and speaking as a professional, that’s a very important consideration.
