Saul: Thanks for getting back.
Carrie: I'm guessing this isn't a social call.
Carrie: What's going on?
Saul: I can't talk. We're on an open line, but we need your help. I know, I hate myself for even asking.
Carrie: Well can't it wait until tomorrow?
Saul: I'm afraid not. David Estes is sitting outside your house right now.
Carrie: Well tonight is Thursday. I cook dinner for the family on Thursdays. I'm making vegetable lasagne with vegetables I picked this morning from the garden. Don't make me talk to him, Saul. I don't ever want to see him again. I've put all that away.
Saul: Please, Carrie.
David: I want you to know, Carrie, this is much appreciated.
Carrie: Let's just get it over with, okay?
David: There's a photo inside I'd like you to take a look at. Do you recognize her?
Carrie: Yeah, I recognize her. Why?
David: Who is she?
Carrie: Fatima Ali, first wife of Abbas Ali.
David: The Hezbollah district commander. How do you know her?
Carrie: I recruited her, that's how.
David: Yet there's no record of her being an asset of yours.
Carrie: I ran her off book.
Carrie: Because I was interested in keeping her alive.
Carrie: ...then I moved to Calgary.

Carrie: Uh, I don't follow hockey.
Mendez: You're from Calgary you follow hockey. It's the Flames.
Maggie: Carrie, please. This is crazy.
Carrie: Believe me, I wouldn't be going if I had a choice.
Maggie: You do have a choice. You always have a choice.
Carrie: No, not this time.
Maggie: Carrie, you're just starting to get back on your feet. You're not ready for this.
Carrie: Don't you think I know that?
Maggie: Regular sleep and meals, avoiding stress, a schedule. These are the things that have been working so well for you. At least call Doctor Rosenberg before you make a decision.
Carrie: I've already decided.
Maggie: I don't understand how you can trust these people for one minute after what they did to you.
Carrie: I trust Saul. He'll be there to hold my hand and it's only for a few days.
Maggie: You say this is about patriotism, but we both know that's not the whole story. Part of you wants to do this.
