The Americans (2013–2018): Season 6, Episode 4 - Mr. and Mrs. Teacup - full transcript

After picking up a distressing piece of intelligence, Elizabeth takes extreme measures to get close to a Soviet negotiator; Philip shares some stunning news with Henry.

Mom. Are you...?

Go back to your car. Now!

You were supposed to do
what you were told to do.

I thought you were...
You left your position.

If anybody else on the team
did that, they'd be finished.

I think there's a lot
to talk about here.

There isn't, Philip.

Here's a new target.

He's a supervisor at the
warehouse where Altheon ships

and does quality assurance
for the sensors.

What do they need
the sensor for?

I ca... I can't.

Some very powerful people

are out there
to get rid of Gorbachev.

We want you to find out
what your wife is doing

and tell us.

And if you have to... stop her.

They want us to be
just like them.

I don't want to be like them.

And neither do
the people back home.

You haven't talked to anyone
back home in over twenty years.

Neither have you.

Your English is very good.

I lived here.

Worked for us at the embassy.

Did you like it here?

I don't know.

It's different.

What about you?

I've been here a long time.

Sometimes, it's even hard
to remember back home.


One thing I learned here
is that they are not crazy.

We can make peace with them.

Now maybe is the best chance
we'll ever get.

That's why I'm here.

I don't really understand
what's going on.

What you said before...

The people running the Centre,

we believe, are actively trying
to get rid of Gorbachev.

And they can't stand
the progress.

It's a threat to them.

Our country having

any kind of openness or freedom.

They think it means that
we won't be communists anymore.

Who's on the other side?

Arkady Ivanovich.

He is deputy chief
of Directorate S.

Everybody in the whole country

who is looking forwards
and not backwards.

inside the organization

who is supporting Gorbachev.

Why did you leave?

Wasn't for me.

And there was...

There's something rotten
about it.

You have to believe me
when I say

my wife would never do anything
to hurt our country.

If you knew her...

We know how loyal she is.

But that loyalty can be used.

We have to know
what she's been up to,

to figure this out.

The details.

Mostly, what you'd expect.

The Summit.

She's been trying hard to get,

some kind of radiation sensor.

She went after
an old source of ours,

Lyle Rennhull,
Air Force general.

He ended up dead.

They are following me now.

I was clean tonight,

we can't meet in person again.



How was work?


You want one?

- Do you smell that?
- What?


Start the sweep.
Go towards the south. Copy.

They got the lights here, too.
I'll get Eddie.

It's not coming from
the storeroom.

Copy that.

I'm online. Go.


Hey, what's going on in there?

There's someone down here.
In the cages.

Copy that.

Eddie, can you read me?


You check the cages.
I'll check Quality Control.


Well, thanks for squeezing me
into your calendar.

I'm a popular girl.

Every time I come home,

all my high school friends
want to hang out.

Plus Dad obligations.

How is Michigan treating you?

You still dating that boy?

No, I dumped his ass.

Good. I didn't like him.

Beer? Coffee?

I just made a pot. Coffee?

Yeah, I'm, like,
up to ten cups a day now.

Junior year is killing me.

I'll have a beer.

So, what's new in the world
of Jim Baxter?

Just looking for
the next opportunity.



Would be nice to use my powers
for good.

See the world, maybe.

Do some non-profit work
or something...

I don't know.

I think
you should run away to Fiji

and become a coconut farmer.

I'll consider it.

Guess where I'm going
over Thanksgiving?

Where? Greece.

With my roommate
and a bunch of girlfriends.

Wow. How's your dad feel
about you missing Thanksgiving?

He's not thrilled.

That's why I came home
this weekend.

But he'll get over it. Yeah.

So, are you seeing anybody?

Not really.

You're stuck.

I am?


You're too great to be stuck.

You should have the job,

the relationship,
everything you want.

You just gotta seize the day,
you know?

I'm working on it.

When I'm sitting there...
I feel...

I'm into it, but...

Are you gonna sleep tonight?

You'll learn to.

Did you get what you needed?


It's like that.

A lot.

I went out
with a bunch of friends

from my Sociology class.

This one guy's brother
came with us.

His name's Brian. Really cute.

I think he liked me.

That's nice.

He's an intern
for Charles Bennett,

the Congressman from Florida.

He's on the...


I saw your car.
What do you need?



Keep going.

Anyway, this guy Brian
is an intern

for a congressman
on the Armed Services Committee.

His brother's birthday
is Friday,

people are meeting up
at this bar...

Right back into it,

is this how it is?

I can go.

We talked about what happened.

It's over.


It's okay, Dad.

No, I don't think it is.

He was troubled.

He killed himself.

Mom tried to stop him.


Why did he do that,
do you think?

Why did he kill himself,

I'm sure there was a reason.

You'd have to ask him.

Sometimes bad things
happen in the world,

and you have to...

Yeah, don't... please don't
tell me about the world, Paige.

Why not?
We live in the world, Philip.

If you guys are gonna fight,

I'm... I'm leaving.
We're not going to fight.

No. There's no point.

He loves me. He loves you.

But somewhere...

Something got lost.

This work can get to be
too much for people,

even the best ones.

I'm so proud of you, Paige.

Really proud.

And listen,

forget about this intern...

What? Why?

If you want to date someone,

If you want to go after someone
as a source for information,

when you're ready, great.

But you don't mix
the two things.

Fine. I-I won't.

And you're not ready
to go after a source.

Not by a long shot.

That takes...

Let's remember the goal.

You're gonna work
in the State Department.

Maybe the CIA.
Maybe the Defense Department.

The most important thing
is to protect you

and to get you ready.

You were out of line,
with Paige.

I'm her father. We have a deal.


maybe we need
to renegotiate our deal.

You're happy to have Henry
do whatever you want.

You put her life in danger.

Her life was not in danger.

It won't happen again.

How do you know that?

Because she learns
from her mistakes.


Last one before Christmas.


She's, - She's not coming
home for Thanksgiving.

She's going to Greece
with her friends.

That's a problem.

We need to hear
what they're saying.

Before the summit.

I'm going downstairs.
Don't wait up.

Latest Breland recording.

Haven't listened
to the whole thing yet,

but the CIA thinks
a General Balashov might resign

because Gorbachev
didn't consult him

about a short-range missile deal
in the negotiations.

While they were discussing it,

they kept talking about
"our guy inside"

and how he couldn't get away
right now.

They have a human source.

Sounded like it.

Couldn't tell
if he was here or there.

But could be someone
on the negotiating team.

Something else came up.

You reported that Stan Beeman's
wife talked about a case

he was still working
in Counterintelligence.

It involved a Soviet couple.

One of our couriers went over
to the Americans.

Defected with his wife
and her child.

It could be them.

See if you can find out.

If it is,
he has to be dealt with.

Bad enough, a courier.

But this one was a player
on our national hockey team.

After they debrief him,

he'll go right
into their propaganda machine.

Picture him in Time magazine,

talking about how terrible
we are.

What should we do next
with Paige?

Another movie?

Honestly it's...

It's all good.

It's almost like...
going back there myself.

Henry on line three.


Hey, Dad.
I got a message you called.

What's up?

Yea... not much. I just hadn't...

Stop! Stop!

W-What? What happened?

Sorry. Not you. Stop!

Sorry about that.

Those guys are so annoying.

Okay, what were you saying?

Just hadn't talked in a while.

D-Didn't you guys
have another game?

No. This afternoon.

Brockton Moore.

Are... Are they good?

Well, this year, yeah,
but next year...

Coach was telling Jordy
that we're gonna be

the best class
he's had in years.


Yeah. We're probably
gonna win League.

Also Jordy thinks
I'm gonna be Captain.

Pretty cool, right?


I mean, yes, of course it is.

But what?

There's no easy way to say this,
Henry, but...

we've been having a...

A rough patch at work...

I thought you said
things were looking up.

I know, but... they're not.

What... What are you saying?

Look, I know how much
you love St. Edward's. I do too.

And next year

is your senior year and all.

Look, Dad, I-I don't understand
what you're saying.

You know we've expanded
and renovated

and getting new people
and equipment and...


I took out a big loan
to do all that

and then... business
just didn't jump

the way I thought it would.


I'm not sure if...

how we can pay for your tuition
next fall.



I mean, I mean, I am trying
to think of ways, but...


Yeah, look, I...

I gotta get back to class, Dad.

I'll... I'll talk to you later.

He's in Room 1203.

We're cycling past
every eight minutes.

Hank just came out.
Julie's next.


We need to follow an FBI agent.

We're looking for a man

who was probably just moved
into a safehouse.

Soviet. Likely with his wife
and her seven-year-old son.

Hopefully this FBI agent
will lead us there.

He won't be looking
for surveillance,

but we'll have to be
very careful.

I already know
some of his routes.

Don't use Julie on this one,
she's too inexperienced.

That's it.

I said to him, that's great.

You guys want to stay together
after you graduate? Great.

But you might want
to think twice

about the same apartment thing.

You're twenty-one years old.

You have no idea.

I just... I just want him
to have a life.

He listen?

What do you think?

You ever worry about money?

I got a government job.

No alimony.

They match whatever I put
into my retirement account.

Wow. And I'm not taking trips
to Europe every year...

sorry... Yeah.

But we don't have
any big problems.

Why? Is everything okay?

Yeah, yeah.

I don't know.

It's just in business,

there's always
this pressure about growth,

that if you're not growing,
you're not succeeding.


But why?

When you think about it,

what is so bad
about staying the same?

Not taking on
more responsibilities,

more headaches, more time.

Bills keep coming either way.

I think of what my father
told me:

The more you want,
the more you get.

And that's both good and bad.


You rich yet?

I wish.

Actually... it's not good,

How bad is it?

It's bad.

It's just not adding up.

Maybe I moved too fast.

The expansion...
the extra people...

I know.
I keep forgetting their names...

maybe you just need to cut back.


I just don't see
how cutting back would fix it.

You'll figure it out.

I'm trying... but I'm, -
I'm not sure.

I told Henry that I'm not sure

we can pay his tuition
next year.


How did that go?

I don't know.


He's your department.

How's Paige?

She's fine.

You know,
you can ask her yourself.

I'm not keeping her from you.

I know.

What about you?


I'm tired.

All the time.

Put pressure on the city
to revoke the club's license.

Once a mainstay
of D.C. nightlife...

I looked at some of your
paintings in the basement.

I liked the one of the woman
in the kitchen...

With the broken eggs?

That's my least favorite.


Too sentimental.

When I first got sick...

when I found out about it...

I kept thinking, well, okay,

at least I've got the work,

it'll be there forever,

it's the best of me.

Something to leave behind.

But really... who cares?
Who cares?

All those hours just...

Honestly, I wish I'd spent them
with Glenn,

just being with him,

doing I don't know what. Just...

Doesn't matter...



Hey, Martin.

Try the vase.

You got a...
You got a strong stroke.

It's terrible.

No, it's just flat.

Well, it is a piece of paper.

You see how the light hits
the vase?


Good. Don't touch that.

Everything else,
make a little bit darker.

And don't be afraid to use
your fingers to smudge it.

Keep working.

Start from the dark,
work towards the light.

Who was on the phone?

- You know Martin Gurrin.
- Yeah.

Some of the guys are gonna watch
the World Series

at his house tomorrow,
with one of the Russians.

Well, you should go.

I don't know...

I don't really want to watch
the game without you.

I've lost interest in baseball.

I can't believe
I ever liked baseball.

I could take you.

A party's still a party.

No one wants to see someone
like this.

Don't say that.

I've taken sicker people places.

You know, I'd be there,

have your wheelchair,
your meds...

You make it sound fabulous.

Maybe you should get out, honey.

Yeah. For the last time?

I think it'd be good
for everyone:

Change of scenery,
little baseball...

This about the fur coat?

Nope. Conrad Monts.

Monts... Monts...

Yeah, the guy trying to build the
air rights complex over I-375.

Yeah, I was gonna push through
wiretaps on Clyburn.

You think we should hold off,
ask for both these guys at once?

Well, in my opinion, yeah. But
have a look, see for yourself.

See, the thing we're gonna have
to deal with...




I'll be right down.

We went up again on Burov

Goes to the school, eats out,

then goes back to his hotel.

How long are you gonna stay
on him?

Another twenty-four.

I told you we're stretched thin.

Well, you'd have
to get pretty lucky.

I'm trying to keep some guys
on him a couple times a week.

So, Mr. and Mrs. Teacup
are giving everybody a headache.

Relocation just called.
They want us back in there.

What? They can't do their job?

Both of them keep saying
they need you.

Jesus Christ, Dennis.

I'm done babysitting
those lunatics.

I... I've done everything I can.

Relocation doesn't complain
a lot.

Let's help them out.

See what the problems are

and check in on them
every couple of days

until they go.

You got no one
who can take this over?

Would I be asking?

You want to just...
You want to hang on to the rail?

There you go.
All right, real slow.

There you go. Yeah.

Okay. Now just turn around
and hang on to me.

I'll let you down slow, okay?

Nice and slow.

Okay? Yeah.

I wouldn't describe it that way.

I'll be with you the whole time.

To the Minnesota Twin Cities

of Minneapolis and St. Paul
for game 6

between the visiting
St. Louis Cardinals

and the Minnesota Twins,

on this cold, cloudy day where
the temperature's in the 30s.

Why are they Twins?

Twin Cities.

Yeah, in the state of Minnesota,

the cities of, Minneapolis
and St. Paul

are so close together,
they function as one big city.

And when they... start to play?

In about fifteen minutes or so.

Could I get...
Can I have some water?


Twins fans have packed The Dome...
Excuse me.

And are making themselves


You okay?

Can I make you
a plate or something?

Go. Save the world.

We're fine here. Really.


Love you.

I shouldn't have come.

No. It's... It's good to be out.

Yeah, maybe for you.

But he did pitch very well

against the Cardinals in Game 3.

The one thing to remember
is that the Minnesota Twins

are gonna be playing this game
today like it's Game Seven

because if they lose
this ball game,

they will be going home
and have a long winter.

For that reason
I think Les Straker

will be pulled early
if he gets into trouble.

We might even see Reardon,
their ace reliever...

Do you need anything?

Martin tells me
you're an artist?

I was.

You still are.

I-I'd love to see
some of your work some time.

I have to check on the kitchen.

Then the Cardinals came back
and used their speed

at home to take
the lead in the series.

It would seem that the Twins

would have the major

I don't feel good.


Okay, okay, okay.


Shit! Okay, okay.

Hold on. Let me grab something.

Hey, no, I'm here...
I'm here... I'm here.

Okay. I'm here.
I'm here. It's okay.

Don't worry.
I'll get some towels.

Thank you. It's okay.

Babe, you're okay. You're okay.

What am I doing here?

We're gonna get you home.


I-I can help.

Okay. Shh. Okay.

Why am I here? It's okay, baby.

It's okay. It's okay. It's okay.

It's okay.

It's okay, baby.

We're gonna get you home. Okay?


It's okay.

I just wanted to say...

I'm sorry.

About your wife.

Um, it must be very hard.

Yes. Thanks.

I had an idea earlier
in the pizza restaurant.

From what you were saying.
It's a very hard thing.


I imagine it's hard
to concentrate on our work.

With... With this going on.

Sometimes. But other times,

it feels like it might...


Hey, no, I'm here...
I'm here... I'm here.
