Main Characters in this Episode
Jai Wilcox: Why do you always feel the need to give me career advice after the fact?
Henry Wilcox: It isn't advice. It's criticism.
Auggie Anderson: Yes, but he meant it in a "go screw yourself" kind of way.
Auggie Anderson: McAuley is Christopher McAuley. He was a deep cover officer for fifteen years, knew everyone important that had anything to do with East Africa. One of his old contacts might know something about Hasaan's movements, but McAuley retired five years ago.
Annie Walker: Why do I feel like I'm still missing something?
Auggie Anderson: Well, when I say he retired, I mean he had a nervous breakdown, quit the CIA, moved to Middle of Nowhere, Virginia, and hasn't contacted us since. I can actually hear you frowning.
Annie Walker: On a scale of none to a lot, how many people have tried to bring him in?
Auggie Anderson: Almost every senior person in that room.
Annie Walker: So this is basically a fool's errand?
Auggie Anderson: Think of it more as a hazing ritual if it makes you feel better.
