The Blacklist (2013–…): Season 4, Episode 9 - Lipet's Seafood Company (No. 111) - full transcript

Liz is trying to rebuild her life with Tom and Red is trying to get Liz a pardon so she can be reinstated. When there's some kind of mass shooting at a Seafood Company it is believed it's ...

Get out of here
or I'll shoot you!

Fire in the hole!


When you were a little baby,

you lived in a warehouse.

And we had bodyguards.

Say hi, Baz.

And inside the warehouse was...

a fake apartment!

Oh, look! It's your daddy
in your fake living room.

Hey, here's Daddy wondering
how much damage

we've done to
our sweet little girl.

Well, it'll make for
an intriguing college essay.


So, I know we're moving out,

but just a quick gut check here.

Kirk is gone.
But according to Reddington,

he's, what, dead?

Not dead?
He's definitely not in jail.

I don't know.

With Reddington,
I don't assume anything.

He kept you from getting answers
about who your father is.

You're the one that told me
that's in my past.

I know, and it is.

But I don't know. Maybe now
that I'm a dad, I'd...

be lying if I said

I didn't wonder
who my father is.

That's totally understandable.

And another day,
I might feel differently,

but this is our present
and our future.

That's all that matters.

Yeah. That and getting her
into a good college.


Let's start by finding her
a place to live.

She needs to be able to
open up her living room windows

and see the sun.

We all do.

We spent months hunting
for Alexander Kirk

at your instance.

The man is responsible for
the deaths of FBI agents,

- the abduction of Elizabeth
and her daughter. - You're upset.

You're damn right I'm upset.
You let him go.

And worse, it's clear to me now
that was your intent all along.

You played us.

Harold, my objective was to keep
Elizabeth and her child safe.

I've done that.
We've done that.

Alexander Kirk is gone,
and he won't be back.

It's time to move on.

Last night, a seafood
processing plant in Maryland

was attacked
by armed commandos.

Local authorities suspect
rogue employees

were secretly using
the facility

to package
and distribute narcotics.

But you know better.

Now that you mention it,
I do.

Seven supposed employees
were killed in the attack.

Photos were circulated
to law enforcement

trying to connect them
to the drug trade.

How did you get this?

You're not looking at a seafood
processing plant employee,

nor a drug dealer.

That is Hassan Arkani.

The terrorist? From Algeria?

You're telling me one of
the most wanted terrorists

on the planet was conducting
a secret operation

out of the back room of
a Maryland fish factory?

You see? No time to dwell
on the past.

If my people hear anything,
I'll contact Agent Keen.

Agent Keen.

Did you forget her agent status
was revoked?

I did not forget that,
or the plea agreement

I worked out with Laurel Hitchin
that kept her out of jail

after she shot
your Attorney General.

You don't want to dwell
on the past,

then dwell on this-- the loss
of her badge was a stain

on Elizabeth's name
and reputation,

which you are ultimately
responsible for.

Your presence in her life
has turned it

into what it is today.

You've brought her nothing
but pain, grief, and regret,

which you seem utterly
oblivious to,

and surprisingly powerless
to rectify.

Good talk, Harold.

Hassan Arkani. Algerian born.

He was a munitions expert linked
to the New Martyrs Brigade.

The NMB is deadly enough
to rank number six

on the Group Threat Index.

Based in Libya, they have
loyal supporters in countries

throughout the region.

I have documentation of attacks
in 17 different countries.

Yeah, but none
on US soil.

So what was Arkani
doing in Maryland?

And whatever it was,
he's not doing it anymore.

So is Reddington saying
the New Martyrs

were building some kind of mass
casualty weapon to use here?

It's possible.

We don't know what they were
building or who took it

or where it is now.

I've notified Homeland,
the CIA, and NSA.

Ressler, Navabi,
get to that factory.

Keen, let the locals know
we're taking over.

Uh, wait, where's Aram?


Cooper told me.

You have nothing to worry about.

Really? I'm being questioned
in connection

to a Justice Department

into whether my girlfriend
committed espionage.

You didn't know.

So I'm either a traitor
or a moron.

A moron. Definitely.

Ah, you always know
just what to say.

Aram, you're a trusting person
who assumes the best in people.

Be yourself
and they will see that.

Everyone does.

What is your ETA, please?

Agent Ressler?

This is Andrew Wyatt,
the factory manager.

Thank you, Detective.

Mr. Wyatt, thanks for
your cooperation.

Yeah, of course.
Whatever I can do to help.

You've seen the images of
the people who died last night?

Yeah, like I told them,
two of the guys,

they've worked here
for about a year.

The other guys I've never seen.

And this man,
have you seen him before?

No idea.

Hey, if it wasn't drugs, what do
you think they were doing?

We're going to need to see
the footage from these cameras.

I wish. The cops had me
check first thing.

Looks like they turned off
the whole system

- right around 9:00.
- You need to see this.

Excuse us. Thank you.

- You got something?
- Nothing good.

Whoever ran this place
had it wiped down

before they ran.

Between that and the fire,
they wasn't much left.

We found shavings from some kind
of titanium alloy, and this.

It's definitely an integrated
circuit timing chip,

but I haven't seen one
quite like this before.

Timing chip, that's used in--

Everything from traffic lights
to railway switches--

To bombs.








What's up with Aram?

I don't know, but he said
it was urgent.

Is this about the deposition?

Uh, no, actually, this is about
a different nightmare scenario.

I've been running diagnostics
on the timer chip

you recovered
from Arkani's factory,

and it is far more impressive
than anything we've seen

from the NMB or any extremist
group for that matter.

In fact, it is as good
as anything

the United States can make
because... we did make it.

- Good Lord.
- More specifically,

the defense contractor
Blackthorn Kincaid made it.

Well, they make everything
from our own ICBMs

to Israel's Iron Dome.

So how'd Arkani get it?

Our national security threat
just became

a national security leak.

Get to Blackthorn. Tell them
we expect full cooperation.

Aram, let's move.
The deposition starts at 2:00.

Panabaker's gonna be
at the deposition.

I'm gonna push her to get you
reinstated as an agent.

That would be... amazing.

But do you think
that's even possible?

After all you've been through
and all you've done,

I think it's crazy
they haven't done it already.

I resent any implication
that we would be

less than forthcoming.

Your classified technology
was found in a facility

being run by a known

Now someone in your position

might be inclined
to close ranks.

Well, that won't happen.

Everyone here has dedicated
his or her life

to protecting
the American people.

Tell us about the timing chip.

It was manufactured within
the last four months

as part of a surface-to-air
missile teleguidance system.

Can you tell us
who manufactured it?

Specifically which employees?

Well, a chip like that would
travel across

several of our divisions.

We're talking 60,
maybe 80 people.

We're gonna need to see
a list.

Of course,
but maybe we could suggest

a more targeted approach.

James Maddox.

At one time, he was
one of our best programmers.


He had a drinking problem
along with anger issues.

We tried to help, but, uh,
in the end,

we-- we had to part ways.

Given what we perceived to be
financial problems,

he might be
a person of interest.

He had access to the chip?

Yes. I knew Jim.

I find it hard to believe that
he would betray his country.

Well, we'll get on that
right away.

In the meantime, we're gonna
need to see that list.

Just make some calls. Yeah.

All right,
I'm gonna check the pier.

Wendy, dear, your ears
must be burning.

Dembe and I were just
talking about you.

Yeah? You figure out how
I'm-a get my 13-year-old

to soccer at the same time
as Liam's piano lesson?

- How are the boys?
- Another day in paradise.

Leo took up the baritone,

the Supernovas won
the regional championship,

and Lionel started dating
some college freshman

with a nipple ring.

Almost enough to make a woman
hope Larry

gets early parole.

Mnh, not on your life, sugar.
Let him rot.

The boys are happy,
I'm happy.

To what do I owe the pleasure,
my love?

I got word that you're
looking for the 411

on the New Martyrs Brigade.

- You got something?
- A little chatter.

You know I'm always
tracking the buzz

on who's moving what
and where.

- I hear the NMB's America bound.
- How many?

I'm hearing six.
Coming in scattershot.

Their papers
will be flawless.

Who's running it? Al-Hambri?

Ha! You wish.

They sent Farook.

Welcome back to
the United States.

You have a nice day now.

Thank you, my love. You're
like a human divining rod.

You always know just where to
look and just what to look for.

Oh, and for what it's worth,

I dropped a little
extra something

in the mail this month.

Thought it might help with
the orthodontist bills.

You wanna help?
Come and fold some laundry.

I gotta go.

Lazy Bones just barfed in the kitchen.

James Maddox--
born August 1970.

I don't know.
What do you think?

Does this look like the face
of a traitor to you?

Anybody's capable of anything.
You know that.

Yeah, well, there's a special
level in hell for people

who provided arms
to terrorists.

Heads up.

James Maddox?


- FBI.
- FBI?


Yeah, I understand.

Uh, that was Agent Keen.

Mr. Reddington says
NMB leadership sent

six operatives to reclaim
that bomb or, um,

uh, whatever it is they lost
at that factory.

It's time.

Does Reddington have a name?

Oh, yeah, one.

Farook Al-Thani.

Agent Mojtabi,
walk us through this again.

Tell us exactly how you met
Elise Nickerson.

Okay, I was at the gym,

and she had been
waiting for a friend

and asked to borrow my phone.

Uh, she said hers was lost.

And then, you know, one thing
led to another and...

And the next thing
you knew, she was using

your personal laptop
to access classified data.

Well, when you put it
like that--

You expect us to believe
you knew nothing about this?

Yes, because I didn't.

I love this country. I take
my job very, very seriously.

If I'm guilty of anything,
it's-- it--

I have bad taste in women.

A sort of blindness to--

Shauna Boyd was a kleptomaniac.

Julia Hernandez was
legally married.

April Roderhorst had a little
bit of a secret porn addiction.

Um, that's a funny story,

This is a deposition,
not a memoir.

Let's keep the focus on how
your computer was used

to breach national security.

Yes, ma'am.

As-salamu alaykum.

Farook. We didn't know
our location was exposed.

I had no idea an attack
was coming.

Yes. That's the problem.

Look, I'm handling it.
I'll find them. I...

I have security camera footage
from the attack.

I convinced the police
there wasn't any.

Look, I know they sent you
to warn me.


tell them, warning received.

They didn't send me
to warn you.

They sent me to replace you.

It's Farook. We need to talk.

He's here.

I'm not here.

This meeting
never took place.

And you will never be
in the same room

with the President-elect.

You really should try
Ginny's Cheeseburger Chowder.

The ground chuck and spices,
the melted cheese.

I highly recommend it
for the inaugural balls.

If you think you can maintain
your immunity agreement

by blackmailing
the President-elect

for allegedly taking illegal
campaign contributions

from Alexander Kirk,

you're not as smart
as everyone says you are.

Marlin, your boss made
a campaign promise to me,

and I intend to make sure he keeps it.

Tell Robert I'll be in touch.

How was the deposition?


I'm sure you were great.

In your eyes.

In theirs, I look a lot
like this guy.

Yusuf Tillisi?

Mr. Reddington said six NMB
members were dispatched

to the US
in the last 24 hours.

He gave us one name,
but not the other five.

Do you have any idea
how many people fly

into the country every day?

So I had to customize
an algorithm to search for--

Five needles
in a huge haystack.

What makes you think
Tillisi is one?

Well, he's the right age.

He works for a Middle Eastern
trade organization

that I'm not sure
actually exists.

He lives in Lebanon,
but flew into Libya last month,

and I am not seeing
a return ticket out.

Thing is, he flew into JFK
almost 72 hours ago,

so that doesn't fit
Mr. Reddington's intel.

He's probably legit,

but it's probably worth
tracking him down,

verifying his reason
for being in the country.

Let me do it.

Based on the places he flew,
I have channels

that might be a bit more

You're going to be cleared.

And when you are,
we will celebrate.

You want to tell me
what the hell happened?

Our facility was attacked.

I know that. How?

That's what I'm here
to find out.

Our people know the penalty
for disloyalty.

So I thought perhaps,
I would ask you--

Now you listen!
I did my part.

I provided the necessary

I'm not going to lose everything
because you people

are too stupid to secure
your own operation.

Look around, Mr. Deavers.

You would be wise to remember
where you are.

You made an agreement to see
our project through

- to its completion.
- That's not possible now.

Let me finish.

If you expect to get paid,

you will help us find
whoever did this

and recover our system.

- You have surveillance?
- It won't do any good.

The attackers were all
wearing balaclavas.

We have proprietary
mapping software

that can recognize sufficient
facial contours

through a soft fabric mask.

- Ah. Remarkable.
- Another trade secret.

You tell your leadership
I'll be adding it to my bill.

I have to get back.

The FBI's investigating
how our chip

ended up in Arkani's hands.

I was forced to make
certain arrangements.

I told you,
I don't know anything

about a missing timer chip.

Here's a tip, Mr. Maddox.

Next time you wanna
appear innocent,

- don't run from the FBI.
- It was stupid, okay?

I thought they were
process servers sent by my wife.

We're in the middle
of a nasty divorce.

I was trying to avoid
going back to court.

It's been a tough few months
for you, James.

You lost your family,
you lost your job,

started drinking again.

I wouldn't betray my country.

We talked to Blackthorn.
You had access to that chip.

My brother was a Marine.

He died in Kandahar.

You really think I'd put
this on my arm

and dishonor his sacrifice

by giving terrorists
classified intelligence?

I don't think you gave it
to them.

I think you sold it to them.

Look, tell me the truth now,
and maybe I can still help you.

Too late.

Mr. Maddox, we just executed
a search warrant

at your apartment
and found a bank passbook

hidden in a bathroom vent

traceable to an account
in Madrid.

- That's a lie.
- Oh.

And we also found a burner phone

taped underneath
your kitchen table,

one with a string
of international calls--

- to Libya.
- Okay, what the hell's going on?

I'm being framed. I swear,
none of that is mine.

What are you doing here?

- I heard the FBI--
- That is under control.

I need your assistance.

No. No, no, no, forget it.

I knew it was a mistake
letting you talk me into

configuring that chip.

A $200,000 mistake.

Look, like it or not,
we are in this together.

If I go down,
we both go down.

What do you need me to do?

This is the, uh,
surveillance footage

from last night's attack.

I want you to run

the facial tomography software
on the attackers.

If they had masks,
it's gonna take a minute.

Can you just do it?

Forget it, Keen.
I know that look.

Don't tell me
you believe him.

Something's off.

It's just a read, but his
denial seems genuine.

I might take that bet.
Blackthorn called.

Another programmer
came forward.

Says he saw Maddox handling
that timer chip a month ago,

just before it dropped out
of inventory.

What about an eyewitness, Keen?
Does that change your mind?

Take Navabi and get a statement.

Where is Agent Navabi?


We've got a problem.

One of my colleagues
at the Bureau flagged Ezra.

- What does he know?
- Nothing yet.

I volunteered to verify that

he's in the country
for a legitimate reason.

Defending our homeland
from extremist savages?

Doesn't get more
legitimate than that.

Mossad carried out a black op
on American soil.

If the FBI finds out about it,

it will be
an international incident.

- Where's the system?
- It's here. Safe.

For now.
Reddington says the NMB

sent Farook with a team
to get it back.

You need to take the system
and go.

You all need to leave
the country.

What about you?

I will do what I can

to keep the Bureau's
attention elsewhere.

Besides, I don't think Alma
would appreciate me

tagging along.

Alma? Yesterday's news.

You're-- you're right.
Better get moving.

Be safe.

- You did it?
- Wasn't easy.

Most of the footage
was too remote.

But I did find an image that
was close enough to scan.

Our program creates a computed
tomography map,

which I had to convert
into a 3-D image.

Based on the data,

we got a 96% match.

- My God.
- Do you know her?

She's FBI.

According to our profile,
she's Mossad.

Mr. Deavers.

Tell me you found our system.

Not yet.
But don't worry, Farook.

I know just where to look.

You can't do this.

I wasn't driving recklessly,

and my navigation system

will prove that
I wasn't speeding.

What's your name, anyway?

Hey, are you listening
to me?

You're about to make
a very big mistake.

Pick up the phone and call my--

Oh, boy.

Isn't this a sticky wicket?

You son of a bitch.

As I mentioned, Senator Diaz
made a campaign promise

that I intend to hold him to.

You what, uh, bribe them?

I've been known to make
the occasional

charitable contribution.

In exchange,
my back is scratched

by the good men in blue.

Yours, not so much.
You blew a .12.

- I what?
- Blood alcohol content.

Next time, call a cab.

Are you out of your mind?

I've been sober for 12 years.

Which is what
makes your relapse

that much more tragic.

The President can't have
a dipsomaniac

serving as legal counsel.

Happily, there is a way
to avoid the drunk tank.

The inauguration is
in two weeks.

How the hell do you expect me
to get you a private meeting?

I have no idea.
Let's hope you're smarter

than everyone says
you are, Marlin.

Marlin-- that's not
a very common name.

I knew a Marlin
when I was young.

Marlin Trout.

One boy, two fish names.

Set the meeting, Marlin.

I got your text. What's up?

We're rolling out.
Gotta take a witness statement.

Someone from Blackthorn?

A programmer who claims he saw
Maddox with the timer chip.

A month ago, but for some reason
didn't bother coming forward

until after the company had
already served up Maddox

on a silver platter.

I'm telling you,
something's off about this.

There's only one way
to find out.

Will you give me a second?

I spoke with Panabaker
about your reinstatement.

She said there's nothing
she can do.

Nothing she can do
now or ever?

Sir, what'd she say?

She said the Attorney General

would need to okay
your reinstatement.

Since you pled guilty
to killing his predecessor,

that's... not going to happen.

I'm so sorry.

Yeah, so am I.

Hey, I ran down Yusuf Tillisi.

The trade company
he works for, it's real.

The CEO put me in touch
with him directly.

He's here for a few meetings

then flies out
at the end of the week.

I'm sorry, but he checks out.

Mr. Cooper got word
from Main Justice.

I am officially...

not a person of interest.

- That's great news.
- Um...

Yeah, right? Um...

Hey, I've never been
so relieved to be told

I am not interesting.

Uh, I thought we could, um,

could maybe celebrate
over... dinner.

It's a date.

You pick.

And make it somewhere amazing.

Mr. Atwell? FBI.

- Agent Ressler, this is Agent Navabi.
- That was fast.

We understand you have
information regarding

a James Maddox and a theft
at Blackthorn Kincaid.

Uh, yes, please come in.

I'd prefer the neighbors didn't
know anything about this.

Is everything okay, Mr. Atwell?

No, no, no, please.
I did what you asked.

You said all I had to do
was get them--

Go. Leave him.

Agent Ressler.

We were set up.
There was no witness.

It was an ambush.

They were inside the house.
The NMB took Samar.

- The NMB? - Look, they wanted
to kill me and abduct her.

That makes no sense.

Why would the NMB single out
Agent Navabi?

They're in a black SUV,
no rear plate,

- shattered rear window.
- All right, sending an alert

to local law enforcement now,

rolling all backup units
to your location.

Reddington, we need your help.
Samar's been abducted.

- The NMB just took her.
- Slow down.

I'm putting you on a speaker.

We're sending you everything,
all the search results

for possible NMB members
coming into the country,

all the flights and profiles
we've ruled out.

Maybe we missed something.

Have you identified anyone
other than Farook?

No. My program's vetted tens of
thousands of possible candidates

but only one real suspect
so far,

- and Agent Navabi cleared him.
- Who?

His name is Yusuf Tillisi.

His photo was part of the file
we just sent you.

But Samar spoke to him--
said it was nothing.

Yusuf Tillisi isn't a terrorist.
He also isn't Yusuf Tillisi.

His real name is Ezra Mandell,
an operative for the Mossad.

Samar knows him.
She's worked with him.

Why would she lie about that?

To protect her fellow

To prevent you from
linking the Mossad

to the attack
on Arkani's operation.

A Mossad strike team
was operating here?

Without permission?

At least we know why
the NMB took her.

The question is where and how
long they'll keep her alive.

Tell me where the system is.

Save yourself an immense
amount of pain.

I'm good.

I can't remember a time

when I wasn't fighting

As a boy in Gaza,

I threw rocks at soldiers.

As I grew, so did the weapons.

The rocks became guns,
the guns became rockets.

For me, life is war.

And that war changed with
the creation of the Iron Dome,

the most advanced missile
defense system in history.

Over 1,200 of our rockets
were intercepted.

The NMB realized that
the best way to defeat

a superior technology
is to turn

an engineering designer.

James Maddox.

Mr. Maddox was just

The NMB's money bought them
someone much higher

up the food chain.

I promised them
a teleguidance system

capable of getting past
the Iron Dome.

After six months of work,

I do not intend
to start over.

So... where is it?

Don't make me ask again.

We're all set.

There's a Hawker 900
on the tarmac at BWI.

Take the system.
Use one of those SKB cases.

Put this in the car.

FBI! Hands in the air now!

Levi Shur.

You don't call,
you don't write.

How'd you find us?

Mossad opened this safe house
with the Bureau's assistance.

I know because our agencies
share intel.

At least I thought they did.
The NMB has Samar.

We know you hit Arkani's
factories, and so do they.

- How?
- I don't know,

but she was taken by
Farook Al-Thani

almost an hour ago.

She-- She lied to us.

Tried to protect you
when she found out

Mossad was behind the raid.

I don't know what
you're talking about.

- No?
- No.

Samar didn't find out
about the raid.

Samar planned the raid.

Enough. We need to
escalate this.

What the hell is so funny?

She won't talk.

We're both the same.

Both true believers

willing to die for what we love.

Farook, we may have

There's an entry for someone
only under the letter "L."

The number's on the list we have
for possible Mossad operatives.

- Call it.
- Now hang on, if it's the Mossad,

they might be able
to trace the call back.

There's no strategic reason
to contact them.

Unless they are willing to trade
their agent for our system.

That wasn't the plan.
She's seen my face.

She can't be traded
for anything, understand?

- She's never leaving this room.
- You are not my concern.

We had a deal.

I'm not signing off
on this.

Then it seems you are the one
never leaving this room.

What about the CIA?

Nobody in your government
has intel

as to where
they may have taken her?

What about Mossad? You guys know
Arkani's building a bomb,

but you don't know whether
he's got a safe house nearby?


And it's not a bomb.

It's a missile guidance system

designed to defeat
the Iron Dome.

In the wrong hands,

it could jeopardize
the lives of thousands.

Then I'll feel better
when it's in my hands.

Get it.


Take it. All I care about
is finding Samar.

Levi. It's her.


I'm afraid Agent Navabi
can't come to the phone.

I'm speaking with one of her
Mossad associates, yes?

- Is this Farook Al-Thani?
- Names are unimportant now.

What matters is that we both
have what the other wants.

So I propose a trade.

If you want to see
your colleague alive again,

bring our system
to Cornerstone Park,

east entrance,
in the next 30 minutes.

And take care to bring it all,

or for every piece missing,

I will extract a piece
of Agent Navabi.

Let me speak to her.

Can we trace the call?

I'm sure they're already
on the move.

We gotta do something.
Gotta get her back.

She's an operative, Levi.
She knew the risks.

- I'm not letting her die.
- You said it yourself--

the wrong step now
could jeopardize

the lives of thousands
of innocent civilians.

Hey, neither of you is
gonna do anything.

This is an FBI matter now.

Are we clear?

I'm still going to that park.

Get him back here. Now.

Agent Ressler,
no word on Agent Navabi.

- You have the system?
- Yeah, we have it right here.

But look-- Levi!


Okay, satellite images
of Cornerstone Park

are coming online, uh, now.

Al-Thani said
the east entrance.

TAC units are taking
positions around the park.

Careful. If Al-Thani sees
anything that screams FBI,

Navabi's dead.

I'm here.

Take the jogging path
to your right

until you reach
a pushcart vendor.

Before you get anything,
I need proof of life,

do you hear me?

Levi, destroy it.
You can't give it to them.

You have your proof.

I've got him. Do I stop him?

It's our careers
if this goes wrong, but...

No, let him
make the drop.

Just make damn sure that system
doesn't get out of the park.

This goes nowhere until
Samar is brought here.

It's been authenticated.

Where is she?

That's her. That's her!

Uh, South Drive.

All units move in.
Stop that van!

move your team in now.

Hands where I can see 'em.

Bring it down!

I'm not the one controlling it.

Cover him!

Aram, I lost visual.
What do you got?

Nothing. It just--
it disappeared.

Well, whoever was controlling it
had line of sight to this park.

Somebody saw it.

We're monitoring for reports
or complaints.

Oh, oh, I got one. I got one.

Reports of someone flying
a drone from the roof

of the Mazelon Hostel.

- All right, the address--
- I got it. Call in security!

Aram. I gather we have
a picture of Farook.

I might have him
leaving the hostel on 92nd.

On the ground! On the ground!


Move! Move!

Look out! Hey!

Drop the bag!

We're ready for you
this time, Jonathan.

Been working on my Paso Doble.

- Fred Astaire, look out!
- Bobby's lost six pounds.

Ah, now, two million people may
watch the inauguration,

but the dance floor's
all Miriam cares about.

And my girl and I
are gonna tear it up.

- Uh, sir, sir.
- Huh? Huh?

What's wrong with him?

Sir, there's a... situation.

I'm so sorry. I would've told
you about it earlier, but--

There you are.
Dance lessons. What fun!

- What the hell is he doing here?
- Oh, my God. You're--

Just hoping the jackals
and mongers

will give you the time and space
you need to settle in

before they start feasting
at your doorstep.

What the hell are you
doing here?

Robert, I know your dance card
is full, but we have

an appointment that I must
insist you keep.

The mustache is
an interesting choice,

sort of a Grover Cleveland
look, I suppose.

Marlin, call security.

No, just... give us a moment.

You and I are even.

- Not quite.
- The hell we're not.

I halted
my presidential campaign

and launched a Senate hearing
into Alexander Kirk's

links to terrorism.

And in exchange, you received
a generous donation

and an appreciable bump
in the polls,

and now look what's happened.

Robert, the man you're replacing
as the leader of the free world

has a legacy he'll want you
to help burnish

by keeping certain people
and policies in place.

He'll want favors.

To get them,
this is one of the things

he'll have to do for you.

This is over.
You and I are done.

Then perhaps I should
speak to Miriam.

I'm sure she's dying to know
what kind of business

you and I have been

It's up to you, Robert.

Would you prefer to be
in the White House

or the doghouse?


You put our country at risk
to get me back.

I don't know whether
to hit you or hug you.

Well, you know what
Ezra said about Alma--

I broke off our engagement.

I'm sorry.

Don't be sorry.

Be happy.
