Ben Geary: Wait, wait.
Oliver: Take some fact. You said you believe Cassius returns to the scene of the crimes. And you've got photos of every murder. So set up a hypothesis of, say, Stephen Hawking is Cassius... which gives you a null hypothesis of Stephen Hawking is not Cassius. So, go through the photos and try and prove the null... that Rolling Thunder is not Cassius. If you can, that means your hypothesis is incorrect. If you can't... then depending on your "P" value of course... you've statistically proven your hypothesis must be true. Or that Stephen Hawking is Cassius. Yeah.

The FBI came after you, they signed you up. You even started a family. You started a real family! To make it stick. You've been a double your whole life.

Paul Shepherdson: When did they activate you?
Ben Geary: [in Russian] A year ago. I was to make the landscape safe for our new arrivals.
Paul Shepherdson: [in English] You cut the Senator's neck because you knew you were the expert who could convince the Americans it was Cassius who did it.
Ben Geary: [in English] An investigation would flush Cassius out. My orders are to kill you and return to Moscow.
