Oleg: We need your help.
Philip: We?
Oleg: The people running the organization right now have a very old life view of things, and Gorbachev doesn't have the power to get rid of them.
Philip: I'm out of it.
Oleg: I'm told. I wouldn't be here except some very powerful people out there to get rid of Gorbachev, to stop all the good things that have been happening lately in our country. Your wife had a meeting in Latin America with the General of Strategic Rocket Forces. Strange, right?
Philip: No stranger than us meeting here. My wife just does her job. That's all she's ever done. She's good at it.
Oleg: I know. But it's possible that she's being used by the people who are trying to stop all the progress that we've been making. Or she's one of them.

It is finally getting to you, after all these years. You're amazing, but it is finally getting to you.


Philip: I know how tired you are, but I need to talk to you.
Elizabeth: If you knew how tired I am, you wouldn't still be talking.

Philip: She's my wife.
Oleg: I understand. I left my wife and my baby boy to be here. I don't have any immunity, so if I'm arrested, I'm finished. If they catch me and send me back, I'll be shot. I'm here because the future of our country is being decided right now. And you know that. I'm sorry you have to make some dumb decision, too. I'll wait to hear from you.

You know about Dead Hand now. You cannot be arrested. [Pushes a jewelry box across the table.]


Oleg: Everything is divided up. That's how [Arkady] explained it to me. This summit, it could be a turning point. We have a pretty good idea where you stand.
Philip: I'm not involved anymore. This doesn't involve me.
Oleg: We want you to find out what you're wife has been doing and tell us, and if you have to, stop her.

Elizabeth: It's hard to trust the Americans. There's a long history of these types of negotiations.
Paige: I know.

Philip: It's not just me having a hard time. It's you, too. The kids. We're allowed to have a life.
Elizabeth: I can't. I just can't.

Elizabeth: The head of the Soviet Division? I'm sorry.
Philip: It's OK. It's why we came here.
Elizabeth: Maybe you should stop. You need to keep getting the recordings, but maybe you should stop.
Philip: You need me, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: Not for this. I'm making you stay and it just keeps getting worse for you. I don't want to see you like this anymore.

Tuan: You should know I already sent my report on the operation. I don't you want to be surprised. In my self-criticism, I acknowledged the mistake I made in contacting my previous family in Seattle.
Elizabeth: Tuan, we don't...
Tuan: It's alright. My organization will forgive me. I said you both did a lot of great things during our work together. But I had to point out there were certain lapses during your cover arrangements which I told you about during the operation.
Elizabeth: Yes, you did.
Tuan: I also put in my report that I believed the success of the mission was risked at the very end because your commitment to achieving our goal was overridden by certain petty, bourgeois concerns.

Note from Pash. He say he love us, not want to make so bad for us, life here. He say he sorry, but he cannot live in America.


Philip: Who is that guy?
Alexei: Because we defect, government give us protection.
Philip: Oh.
