Sonya: I wanted you to tell me something. Was any of it real, between us?
Michael: I had a job to do Sonya. To get close to you and close to the people you work with.
Sonya: You didn't answer the question.
Michael: I was under cover for us long I lost track of who I was. Part of me, the part that believe in what we were doing, that part cared for you.
James: Why didn't you complete your mission?
Michael: Because the man they sent after you Simon. Because if they work with him, they believe in nothing and I believed. I believed from the first day of my training at the CIA. I thought all they stood for was right. Even after they burned me, I gave them everything and I wasted my life for a lie.
Michael: There's no way they let you out of prison. After everything you've done.
Simon: Wake up Michael. Guys like us, we're weapons. As long as we're useful someone's always going to want to take us out to play.
Michael: No, no. I captured you. I put you away Simon. This makes no sense.
Simon: This makes all the sense in the world. Use that big brain of yours. The fact that you captured me, makes you the prefect man for the job. You're deep cover. Whoever ran the extraction team had to be someone who didn't work for the CIA, someone you'd never work with. Somebody like me.
Michael: Simon? What the hell are you doing here?
Simon: Relax Michael, we're on the same side. You were waiting for Alpha Team. I'm Alpha Team.
Sonya: We're going to Latin America, and that is all that you get. There you've taken blood from a stone, happy?
