The scene opens with Carrie driving and Saul is talking team about the Saudi Arabian Diplomat, Al Sahrani, who talked with Nicholas. Saul tells the team that Al Sahrani is gay and that he has wives and children. He says that he is $750,000 in debt to a bank. Carrie arrives at the bank to which Al Sahrani is in debt and meets with Dwayne Pritchard. She says that they want to give Al Sahrani some pain. She asks to borrow their bank. Meanwhile, Nicholas is having breakfast when he sees black SUVs pull up to his house. He gets ready to attack, but it is the Secret Service. Vice President Walden comes in and tells him that he has to keep the security since the Walker threat. He asks if Walker is as good of a shot as they say he is. Nicholas says that he is. Walden tells Nicholas that he wants him to run for Congress, just like Abu Nazir had said. He says that he would love to, but needs to talk it over with his wife. He asks if that is going to be a problem. Nicholas says that it won’t...

Episode Quotes
Vice President: How would you feel about running for a seat in the upcoming special election? I would consider it an honor to work with a man who has actually fought the war on terror. Whose lived among the enemy and understands them. What do you think? Interested?
Brody: Yeah, I'm interested.
Vice President: Good news, good news.
Brody: I need to talk to my wife first.
Vice President: Is that a problem?
Brody: To be honest, it could be.
Vice President: Well, we need her on board, she's half the story. War hero returns home after eight years imprisonment to his beautiful wife...I'm sure you'll be able to convince her.

Saul: Mr. Al-Zahrani, I'd like you to go back to your house now. Put that drawing in your window tonight. Tomorrow afternoon, I'd like you to proceed as you normally would to meet Tom Walker. Okay?
Al-Zahrani: So, I'm bait?
Saul: You're bait. You're free to go now.
Al-Zahrani: What happens to me after all of this?
Saul: Go about your business. Live your life. We say nothing to Saudi Intelligence about your connections to Abu Nazir, you say nothing to Abu Nazir about our little get-together. You work for us now. Welcome to the CIA.

Kyle Galyean: Al-Zahrani's got diplomatic immunity. That may not mean much to you people, but to us mere mortals in the State Department, that's a serious issue.
Saul: We're not dragging him to Tunisia. We're not water-boarding. We'll be very polite and gentle. I just want to ask him some questions during his lunch hour.
Kyle Galyean: CIA's not even supposed to be operating on American soil. It's against your own charter. This is the FBI's job.
Saul: Al-Zahrani's running a terrorist cell out of the Saudi embassy. He and Tom Walker are planning an attack on the United States. Fuck the charter.
David Estes: He doesn't mean that.
Saul: Yes, I do.
