[Linga and Hendrick, Mandela's bodyguards, are waiting for him to go running]

Hendrick Booyens:
Gee, It's cold, man.

[Mandela exits his house]

Linga Moonsamy:
Morning, Madiba

Nelson Mandela:
How are you?

Linga Moonsamy:
Fine, thanks.

Hendrick Booyens:
Morning, sir.

Nelson Mandela:
How is your family, Hendrick?

Hendrick Booyens:
Top shape, sir. How about yours?

[Mandela stops in his tracks, suddenly weary, and looks at him]

Nelson Mandela:
I have a very large family. 42 million. I don't think I'll walk today. [goes back inside]

Linga Moonsamy:
[furiously] We never, never ask him about his family.

Hendrick Booyens:
But he asks us about ours all the time!

Linga Moonsamy:
Hey, think about it, man. He's separated from his wife, his children. How often do you see them here, huh? He's not a saint, okay? He's a man, with a man's problems. He doesn't need us reminding him about them.
