I could tell you what this episode about spies is really all about, but then I’d have to kill you. It’s better that you just listen to it yourself. Slow dialog: 1:26 Explanations: 3:23 Fast dialog: 20:03 Vaughn: You’ve been reading that novel for hours. What is it? Sydney: It’s a spy novel and it’s really good. It’s about a man who is recruited by the C.I.A. to work in counterintelligence doing code breaking, but he becomes embroiled in the world of espionage. Vaughn: That sounds exciting. Sydney: Yeah, he’s sent on a mission to infiltrate a foreign spy organization and to feed them misinformation. I’d love to be a spy. Vaughn: You wouldn’t really want to live the life of a spy, would you? You’d have to live a double life, not being able to tell your friends and family that you’re an operative. Sydney: I wouldn’t care if I could go on clandestine missions to thwart and sabotage the enemy. Working for the C.I.A. would be a dream come true. Vaughn: You’d have to keep a lot of secrets, not divulging classified information. Sydney: Yes, so? Vaughn: Loose lips sink ships. Sydney: What are you trying to say? Vaughn: Well, no offense but I think your cover would be blown after about five minutes! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
