Annie Walker: McAuley said "talk to Henry Wilcox."
Auggie Anderson: Yes, but he meant it in a "go screw yourself" kind of way.
Annie Walker: [leaving a briefing] Hey, Auggie? Why did Joan say I might have a shot 'cause I'm new?
Auggie Anderson: McAuley is Christopher McAuley. He was a deep cover officer for fifteen years, knew everyone important that had anything to do with East Africa. One of his old contacts might know something about Hasaan's movements, but McAuley retired five years ago.
Annie Walker: Why do I feel like I'm still missing something?
Auggie Anderson: Well, when I say he retired, I mean he had a nervous breakdown, quit the CIA, moved to Middle of Nowhere, Virginia, and hasn't contacted us since. I can actually hear you frowning.
Annie Walker: On a scale of none to a lot, how many people have tried to bring him in?
Auggie Anderson: Almost every senior person in that room.
Annie Walker: So this is basically a fool's errand?
Auggie Anderson: Think of it more as a hazing ritual if it makes you feel better.
Annie Walker: How do you feel about what we do?
Auggie Anderson: [thoughtfully] Hmm...
Annie Walker: I mean, I know that manipulating people for information is pretty much my job description, but... it always makes me feel...
Auggie Anderson: Dirty?
Annie Walker: Tell me it's worth it.
Auggie Anderson: Tell me what "it" is, and I'll tell you if it's worth it.
Annie Walker: I read McAuley's file. And based on what he said today, I might have something I can use.
Auggie Anderson: Worth it. It would be a huge get for you to bring somebody like McAuley in. We don't always get to have everything nice and shiny and clean, but we are talking about keeping weapons out of the hands of terrorists here.
Annie Walker: Henry Wilcox said "We're in the mud, all of us, whether we want to admit it or not."
Auggie Anderson: Does that bother you?
Annie Walker: I'd like to know how dirty I'm going to get.
Christopher McAuley: You wanna get off my property?
Annie Walker: Mr. McAuley, my name is Annie Walker. I'm from...
Christopher McAuley: Langley.
Annie Walker: We need your help. Is there somewhere we could go and talk?
Christopher McAuley: Get off my property.
Annie Walker: Well, I have a flat tire.
Christopher McAuley: Well, then I hope you have a spare.
