Tier 1

Solomon Island Debriefing      
Kirsten Geary: (On the phone) Ugh, listen to me. Li-Listen...
Kirsten Geary: Oh, stop crying, you are forty years old. It takes hours to die from a gut shot like that.
Kirsten Geary: Literally hours, it's a total drag.
Kirsten Geary: So I'll call you later. okay?
Kirsten Geary: Okay, ciao-ciao. (Hangs up)
Kirsten Geary: Ugh, new recruits, no stomach for field work.
Kirsten Geary: Solid results out there.
Kirsten Geary: Not the results we were expecting, but we have entire departments all about adjusting expectations.
Kirsten Geary: Heads will roll, whatever.
Kirsten Geary: What's buried beneath that rock stays buried.
Kirsten Geary: No shit it's a cosmic big deal, but forget all about it,
Kirsten Geary: or you'll follow Beaumont into a secure treatment ward at Arkham State Hospital.
Kirsten Geary: And we don't go to Arkham. Super unsanitary.
Kirsten Geary: As for the one that got away, she won't get away far.
Kirsten Geary: We've got our best recruiters reaching out to her.
Kirsten Geary: The magic sword is a nice-to-have, but opportunism like that is priceless.
Kirsten Geary: And if little Cassandra doesn't play ball, we'll put her through Questions and Answers to figure out the whole Morninglight angle.
Kirsten Geary: It's a win-win.
Kirsten Geary: At least we've kept the factional status reasonably quo, although I'm a little curious about what the Orochi Group is playing at.
Kirsten Geary: We do have strict non-compete spells in place, a lot of red tape and chilling effects, but I wouldn't put it past them to go behind our backs.
Kirsten Geary: Just like we're going behind theirs.
Kirsten Geary: Oh, you're an accessory no, incidentally.
Kirsten Geary: Executive summary, you did good work out there. High five.
Kirsten Geary: (You try to give her a high-five) Really, hm.

Tier 2

Questions and Answers      
Erin Mahler: (Turns on a monitor with 'Q&A' printed on it) Do you know what that means?
Erin Mahler: No, you don't. You have absolutely no idea what that means.
Erin Mahler: Today, we'll be doing questions, but we will skip the answers. We know the answers.
Erin Mahler: Miss Geary already debriefed you, there's no need for repetition.
Erin Mahler: How would you rate your performance? Don't answer that.
Erin Mahler: Didn't I tell you? We already know.
Erin Mahler: Bottom line, you failed.
Erin Mahler: Lucky for you, so did everyone else, which makes it hard to establish a cutoff point.
Erin Mahler: Geary's job is to make you feel special, to make you deliver.
Erin Mahler: Our is to simply... evaluate.
Erin Mahler: We look at facts. The facts concern us.
Erin Mahler: Your loyalty concerns us.
Erin Mahler: We have questions, but your answers are... irrelevant.
Erin Mahler: Frankly, actions speak louder than words.
Erin Mahler: The sword isn't the only relic of note to go off the radar lately.
Erin Mahler: An alarming amount of it ending up in the wrong hands. I.e. not ours.
Erin Mahler: The Phoenicians are involved.
Erin Mahler: (Referring to the Morninglight) Also, these people... No one knows quite what to make of them. We're filing it under T.B.D.
Erin Mahler: And then there's the Orochi Group...
Erin Mahler: We know exactly what to make of the Orochi Group.
Erin Mahler: They may appear to be on our side, but they are not. They are dangerous. They have ambitions.
Erin Mahler: And like us, they have eyes and ears everywhere.
Erin Mahler: Everywhere.
Erin Mahler: I'm going to tell you exactly what that means.
Erin Mahler: It means we're paying attention. All the time. To you, to everyone else.
Erin Mahler: Q&A isn't just me. It isn't even... us.
Erin Mahler: It's all of you. Vigilance is important. If you want to avoid seeing this room again...
Erin Mahler: You will learn to be vigilant.
Erin Mahler: This went well.

Tier 5

In the Server Room      
Leah Cassini: Have you tried turning it off and on? No?
Leah Cassini: Then please kill yourself.
Leah Cassini: Yo, I'm the sysadmin. I've been tracking you since that unauthorized email access.
Leah Cassini: Strike one.
Leah Cassini: Is the agent dead? Out there, I mean.
Leah Cassini: In the system his mistakes will live forever,
Leah Cassini: like stains under a blacklight. Dirty digital fingerprints all across the world.
Leah Cassini: Seriously, do these people even understand how technology works?
Leah Cassini: Everything is recorded, nothing is deniable.
Leah Cassini: We know your entire life story. It's chill though,
Leah Cassini: my job isn't in the details. Your weird-ass preoccupations are totally your own thing.
Leah Cassini: Can you... not try to make eye contact.
Leah Cassini: I also do numbers, data.
Leah Cassini: I ran all those shipping numbers you saw, which FYI takes longer than it does in the movies.
Leah Cassini: Yeah, Egypt, I bet you twigged when you got jacked by mummies.
Leah Cassini: Gold star. But check out all this activity in and out of the desert.
Leah Cassini: Let's say half of them are dummy shipments, to throw off anyone with too much time and satellite access.
Leah Cassini: That still leaves...
Leah Cassini: a lot. And what's weird is that this Egyptian mafia, The Kingdom, are super anal about export control.
Leah Cassini: As our rogue trader found out. Do you still have his chip?
Leah Cassini: No shit. Well, I know where Geary's sending you next.
Egypt Briefing      
Kirsten Geary: In summary, plenty of room for improvement.
Kirsten Geary: Now it's time for you to leave and me to chat with one of our rising stars. Ciao-ciao.
Kirsten Geary: I don't expect to see him again. We're making a few... cuts.
Kirsten Geary: Exciting news, you're going to Egypt.
Kirsten Geary: Well, exciting if you're into all beach and no sea.
Kirsten Geary: I prefer the Mojave. Hmm...
Kirsten Geary: the smell of the firing range, peyote, shallow graves.
Kirsten Geary: But enough about my childhood.
Kirsten Geary: Africa hasn't been a key action area for us since the 14th century B.C.
Kirsten Geary: Now our sources say something big is going down in the desert, a real game-changer.
Kirsten Geary: New England is so last week.
Kirsten Geary: The catch is that we'll have to work with Venice.
Kirsten Geary: The Council used to run the show...
Kirsten Geary: back when the Earth was flat and the sun revolved around Europe.
Kirsten Geary: These days they're all about being "neutral observers,"
Kirsten Geary: getting in the way of a good, old-fashioned honour system.
Kirsten Geary: But until we find a way to speed up their slow descent into the ocean,
Kirsten Geary: it pays to use and abuse them. We scratch their back, they crack down harder on the Templars.
Kirsten Geary: It's a public service, the modern world is so over big swords and bad teeth.
Kirsten Geary: Hook up with the Venice envoy, make nice, find out what they know.
Kirsten Geary: If you have to make a mess, make sure you don't spill any on the Orochi Group.
Kirsten Geary: They've been making a lot of noise about New England,
Kirsten Geary: and the word is that their Egyptian operation has been compromised.
Kirsten Geary: They're likely to pin it on us, if push comes to shove.
Kirsten Geary: I'd tell Orochi to go fuck themselves, but you know how it goes.
Kirsten Geary: They're the world's biggest transmedia conglomerate.
Kirsten Geary: Setting up a video conference regarding self-fucking would take forever.
Kirsten Geary: Ah! Time for my next-o'-clock.
Kirsten Geary: Don't worry, you're not on my cut list, yet. Ciao-ciao.
