Benji: Let’s give you a few friends to play with. Sorry! OK, I’m set. How (are) things going down below?
Jane: How do you think? I’m in a sewer.
Jane: I’m in position. Move to Phase II.
Benji: What (are) you doing?
Jane: What’s wrong? What is happening, Benji?
Benji: Oh, God, he is not going to the extraction point.
Jane: Stay focus. He knows where he is going.
Benji: No, I’m not. I won’t open that door. Please go to the extraction point, Ethan. I know what this means but I can’t. I’m not authorized… Go to the extraction point. Ethan. Go to the extraction point. Oh, you (are) gonna wait. We (are) gonna wait. OK, I can wait. OK, fine, fine. You just screwed the whole thing up on purpose. Jane, we (are) gonna have a slight delay.
Benji: Why do you wanna go in there?
Benji: I don’t know what he’s doing, and for some reason, I’m helping him.
Jane: As long as where he should be when the song ends.
Benji: We have a passenger.
Ethan: Open all (the doors).
Jane: Agent Hunt.
Ethan: And you are?
Jane: Agent Carter.
Jane: Who is your pal?
Ethan: I tell you on the way. Light the fuse.
Benji: I don’t mean to bring up the elephant in the room, but what is with the big hairy Russian?
Ethan: Who, Bogdan? He said me intel. If I left him there, they would kill him. So we (are) gonna give him his freedom. Did you call these sweepers?
Benji: Yeah, on their way.
Ethan: Good. Benji, How was it you’re here?
Benji: I passed the field exam. Crazy, right?
Ethan: Yeah, crazy.
Jane: DNA test.
Ethan: It is me.
Jane: It is procedure. I am just confirming it is you.
Ethan: You are very through.
Bogdan: Sergei, are you not Russian?
Benji: Sweepers are approaching, and brooms are ends (to be verified).
Ethan: Roger that.
Bogdan: Sergei, are you not Sergei？
Ethan: You’ll be fine. Bogdan. I always take care of my friends.
Bogdan: My friends…
Jane: Messy bringing him along?
Ethan: I thought it went rather well.
Jane: You want to tell me what you were doing in a Russian prison.
Ethan: Wanna tell me why you broke me out?
Jane: This wasn’t a rescue mission?
Ethan: Let me put it this way. If the Secretary wanted me out of there, must be pretty bad out here.
Jane: We are after a file. We lost it.
Ethan: We? Who lost it? You?
Jane: Agent Hanaway.
Ethan: Where is Hanaway?
Jane: It was a little drop, classified file. It should (have) been a simple intercept. We knew which train the carrier was on.
Benji: ETA 2 minutes on the carrier.
Jane: There was one thing we didn’t know.
Benji: Bobcat, your train, 6 minutes out.
Jane: Who the carrier was.
Hanaway: It’s now or never, Bobcat!
Jane: Carrier delivering the file. What is his name?
Go ahead, shoot!
Hanaway: We are out of time. I need a name, folks. I can’t track all those people at once.
Marek Stefanski, for the love of God.
Jane: (Have) you got it?
Benji: Marek Stefanski
Hanaway: Searching, I take it from here. Hey, you are alright, buddy?
Jane: Hanaway dropped Marek and grab his bag.
Hanaway: Sit down and get your breath
Jane: He had the file in his hands. Easy in, easy out.
Hanaway: File secured.
Jane: But we were not the only ones after it.
Hanaway: Bobcat, someone else crashed this party. I am not alone.
Jane: Local police?
Hanaway: No, armed hostiles.
Jane: Hang tight. I’m coming. I will go back him up.
Benji: Negative, Operator. I’m on the move, southeast corner, 60 seconds
Jane: Hanaway’s lens drew a facial matching and triggered a warning, but it was too late. No, you (are) gonna be OK.
Hanaway: You (are) so beautiful. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t (have) told you.
Jane: It was my op. I put him in the field. She left him just alive for me to see him die.
Ethan: I’m sorry.
Jane: You know her?
Ethan: Sabine Moreau, contract killer, works for diamonds. Who is in the file?
Jane: Russian nuclear launch codes.
Ethan: IMF’s been looking for an emerging extremist codenamed Cobalt. He is determined to detonate a nuclear weapon however he can. We know Moreau’s worked for him before.
Jane: What else (does) IMF know about him?
Ethan: So much as you do know. But if Moreau’s the nuclear launch codes, you can bet Cobalt’s become from a person of interest to enemy no.1 (to be verified).
Benji: We are here.
Jane: Why was he in prison?
Benji: He disappeared after he and his wife…, you know. I thought he’s just been transferred, put on leave. There were rumors though, talked for a nonsanctioned hit.
Welcome back, Mr. Hunt. In your absence, IMF learnt Cobalt is or was a level I nuclear strategist for Russian intelligence. Therefore, the only way to uncover his actual identity is to infiltrate the Kremlin itself. In order to get past the checkpoint, you will be personating General Anatoly Fedorov. We believe Cobalt will do everything he can to destroy any record of his identity. Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to penetrate the highly secured archive inside the Kremlin to retrieve Cobalt’s file before he can destroy it. New intel suggests Cobalt is already in route, leaving you 4 hours and 15 minutes to infiltrate. To save time, we (have) chosen your team for you: Agents Carter and Dunn. As always, should you or any member of your team be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This message will self-destruct in 5 seconds. Good luck, Ethan.
Jane: What (have) you got?
Ethan: We are going into the Kremlin.
Banji: I thought you said “the Kremlin”. I thought you said “the Kremlin”. OK.
