[Guillam has come face to face with Gerald the mole
] Peter Guillam
: You butchered my agents... How many since? How many? Two hundred?... Three?... FOUR?
[he launches himself at Gerald
: [pulling Guillam off
] Stop that!
: There was no one out there, that you noticed? Mendel
: Quiet as the grave.
: [about Jim Prideaux
] We've traced him. He's become a teacher, Thursgood's Catholic School for Boys. It's in West Country. Sir Oliver Lacon
: [about Guillam
] He does sound jumpy. He might have overdone it a bit there. He was very loud. I've seen it all before, tough ones who crack at 40. They lock it away, pretend it isn't happening, all of a sudden you find 'em sat in front of their desks, the tears pouring on the blotter.
[Smiley looks at him critically
: I think I should say what's on my mind. George Smiley
: I think Peter will manage. You heard something about his murderous assignment in French North Africa, I suppose? Mendel
: Something. Whispers. George Smiley
: Peter was over-matched, and lost. His agents were hanged. No one recovers entirely from that sort of thing. That is, I wouldn't trust a man who did.
: [at a window
] Same as you, George: just a feeling that someone's watching my back. Mendel
: I followed both of you to the front door. If either of you had company, it's cleverer than me.
