Episode Quotes
Jim: The sound frequency in that corridor is three million cycles. You won't be able to hear it, but in two minutes it can turn you into a vegetable.
Paris: I will try to remember that.

Paris: I mean half of the hundred million. A full partnership.
Igor Stravos: Ohhh, no, you can't be serious.
Paris: I am very serious when it comes to risking my life. I don't know what I would do without it.

Jim: The House of Rakozny dates from the 14th century without a breath of scandal. Now, to protect it, you would ask me to become a thief and a traitor to my country.
Igor Stravos: We all have to make little compromises.
