Now, before we go on there is one thing I've been wanting to ask you.
Who are you?
Who am I?
Who are you really? You're not Richard Parsons. Your service records do not check. There was a Richard Parsons who served with the Air Cav in Vietnam, but he's been dead since 1968. We need to know who all of our employees are. It's just standard procedure.
Look, I don't need to tell you anything. You're not a cop.
