Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

Are you political, Mr. Gaines? 
No, sir. 
Good. We have no tolerance for politics at the White House. 
I'm Cecil Gaines. I'm the new butler. 
You hear nothing. You see nothing. You only serve. 
You know he got that job hisself. The White House called him, he didn't call the White House. 
I wanna hear all the stories. 
I don't know how many stories you gonna hear, 'cause they done swore him to some kind of secret code. I'm so proud of you. 
Did you go to an all colored school, Cecil? 
I didn't go to school, Mr. President. I grew up on a cotton farm.  
Get back to work. 
Don't you lose your temper with that man. This is his world, we're just livin' in it. 
'Bout time you go ahead on your own. 
You lookin' for some help? 
You don't broke our window, and done stole our food. And now you askin' for a job? 
I know how to serve. 
They say this new white boy's smooth. 
I am thrilled to be working with all of you over the next four years.  
Dr. King. 
What do your daddy do? 
He's a butler. 
Young brother, the black domestics are an important role in our history. 
Something special's going on down here, dad. 
Mr. President. 
I know your son is a Freedom Rider.  
Turn the bus! Everybody out! 
You know, I never understood what you all really went through. You've changed my heart.  
There's this whole black power movement going on. I gave him the green light to gut those sons of bitches.  
You know what they gonna do to you? They gonna kill you. 
This country treats us like dogs.  
You're wrong about the President. You need to go. 
Get the hell out! 
I'm sorry Mr. Butler. I didn't mean to make fun of your hero. 
Everything you are, and everything you have is because of that butler.
