Simon Graham: You insolent, useless son of a peasant dog! How dare you show your sword in his presence! Do you know who this is? This is the President of the United States of America! He is here to lead our armies in victorious battle against the rebels! Guard: It is not my responsibility. Simon Graham: Now get over there and help those men with their equipment! Guard: Carry the equipment. Algren: The President of the United States? Simon Graham: Sorry. I think I'm going to be sick.
Simon Graham and Algren want to pass through some guards watching over Katsumoto. Simon lies to the guards and demand they let them pass because Algren is the President of the United States.
