Dialogue[edit]

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

Are there any Paraguayans here?

Emmett Fitz-Hume: (subtle laugh from the reporters)

Well, of course, their requests for subsidies was not Paraguayan in and of it is as it were the United States government would never have if the president, our president, had not and as far as I know that's the way it will always be. Is that clear?

Captain Hefling:

What about that red Chinese radio chatter?

Austin Millbarge:

It's done. Here you go.

Captain Hefling:

Done? That was a static-filled triple-scrambled microwave transmission between two soldiers talking in Mandarin Chinese!

Austin Millbarge:

Well the Chinese were only using a simple polyphonetically-grouped twenty-square-digit key transposed from boustrophedonic form with multiple nulls. I broke it with this.

Captain Hefling:

A Drogan's decoder ring? They put these things into cereal boxes... For kids!

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

I'm sorry I'm late; I had to attend the reading of a will. I had to stay till the very end, and I found out I received nothing... broke my arm.

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

Oh. Uh, will you hold my wallet for me while I take the test, please? There's a thousand dollars in there... or maybe there isn't. Know what I mean?

Test Monitor:

Are you saying I can take this money if I help you pass the test?

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

What do you think?

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

Was that me?

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

Did you hear that?

Austin Millbarge:

Yeah. It's a dickfer.

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

What's a dickfer?

Austin Millbarge:

To pee with.

We need a plan.

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

Let's play dead.

Austin Millbarge:

Show some balls, man!

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

I think it's too late to try and impress them.

(beat)

Alright; Stop right there... and I'll bring back the sun. Okay...

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

(con’t)(Fitz-Hume shows a picture from his wallet)

This is my sister. You can all have her. I hear she's very good.

Austin Millbarge:

I gotta take a leak. You should go too.

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

What are you my mother? Don't you think I'm capable of determining my own time to go to the bathroom?

Austin Millbarge:

So, isn't now one of those times?

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

No.

Austin Millbarge:

You mean you don't feel a certain degree of urgent pressure on the inner wall of your bladder, now, right at this moment?

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

No, I'm fine!

Austin Millbarge:

Well... wouldn't you feel more comfortable being fully relieved of any excess fluids that might be building up immediately, now?

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

I gotta take a wizz?

Millbarge nods triumphantly

Soldier #1:

General Sline, sir?

General Sline:

Yes, Sergeant?

Soldier #1:

It's a collect call from Pakistan, for Mr. Ruby. A Mr. Fitz-Hume.

Ruby:

What?

Austin Milbarge:

Ah, folks, uh, sorry, uh... We'll just be another minute. Thank you for your patience.

Soldier #1:

It's person-to-person, sir. Collect. They said their contacts tried to kill them, and they don't know what they should do.

Keyes:

And they told you this... over a public phone?

Soldier #1:

No sir. The AT&T operator told our operator.

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

And? And... uhh... they... they sent me here t-to assassinate your Premier!

Russian Interrogator #2: (to interrogator #1)

I knew it! Pay up, comrade!

Russian Interrogator #1: (unimpressed)

Let's cut his fingers off anyway.

My objective? Well I object to taking a girl out, you know, and buying her dinner and then she won't put out for you.

Russian Interrogator #1:

Why are you here?

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

Why am I here? Why are you here? Why is anybody here? I think it was Jean-Paul Sartre who once said... how do you spell Sartre?

Emmett Fitz-Hume: (Interrogator #2 slaps him, Fitz-Hume address Interrogator #1)

Owww... and let that be a lesson to you.

Hey! What's this?

Austin Millbarge:

You don't want it!

Fitz-Hume stands up and casually throws the grenade back

For once I'm completely in agreement with my partner. I'm not going down there. Do you know what those things can do? Suck the paint off your house and give your family a permanent orange afro.

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

She wants to know why we'd do such a thing.

Tell her so do we.

By your actions, sir, you are risking the future of the human race!

General Sline:

To guarantee the American way of life, I'm willing to take that risk.

General Sline:

When we commissioned the Schmectel Corporation to research this precise event sequence scenario, it was determined that the continual stockpiling and development of our nuclear arsenal was becoming self-defeating. A weapon unused is a useless weapon.

Austin Millbarge:

Find a rock! Go the SatScram terminal! Smash that thing!

Emmett Fitz-Hume:

(Fitz-Hume smashes terminal)

It's broken.

Austin Millbarge:

Bring it here.

Austin Millbarge:

(Fitz-Hume shrugs and walks towards Millbarge holding the rock)

Not the rock.
