Dying U.N.C.L.E. agent Dancer makes contact, reporting that "the bird is on the wing" before disappearing. This suggests a threat: THRUSH plans to assassinate the boy lama of Shantai, Miki, who is in the United States for dental surgery. Miki united his fractious nation; with him out of the way, and perhaps some additional help, THRUSH can take control of that state. Naturally, Mr. Waverly wants that prevented.
Kelly Brown: I wish I was in a cocktail dress somewhere. With my boyfriend. Who I don't think is my boyfriend anymore because of this darn uniform. He said he wanted me warm and dancing and feminine. Not antiseptically clean!
Miki: They did not instruct me of such things at the lamasery.
Illya: For men, there is no instruction in these things.
Miki: Wait! Are those two not already finished? You know their faces. Their own organization will know they failed. Surely they could not be running to any sort of freedom.
Solo: Ten years old?
Illya: I don't believe it, either.
