* Lincoln's favorite story. It's about Ethan Allen going to England to conduct business upon the end of the American Revolution. While there, he gets invited to the house of a notable English lord. While there, he notices a portrait of UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington on the wall in the bathroom (it's been put there as an insult), but doesn't comment on it. After dinner and some talking, the lord, with a smirk, just has to ask what Allen thought of the portrait. Specifically, if he put it in the right place. Allen says he does think it's in the right place. The lord gets confused and asks him why. Allen responds "[[spoiler:There is nothing that will make an Englishman shit so quick as the sight of UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington.]]"

**And again, the stuff said on the House floor in the movie is based very closely on the official records (which however, some claim Stevens had "sanitized" as his actual eviscerations of his political opponents were even more brutal and less fit for print)

* The men being hired to offer patronage jobs to Democrats are being told what they can and can't do. One man's justification for resorting to bribery: "It's not illegal to bribe Congressmen. They starve otherwise."

** Made even funnier because he's shown storing the written version of it in his hat.

** Made even funnier because because, in a nod to well-known Lincoln lore, he's shown storing the written version of it in his hat.



* In the beginning of the film, two young white soldiers run up to Lincoln during his talk with the black soldiers and are obviously shocked and tongue-tied to be in the presence of their president. So what do they say?

** Even better, it actually looked like the Congressmen was trying to reload faster than the ringleader could collect the papers, because it's no myth on how incredibly tedious it was to reload a gun from that time.
