David Estes: [ glancing at monitor ] There he is: Abu Nazirs number two in custody. Good work, Saul.
Saul Berenson: Well, if we’re handing out mazel tovs, we couldnt have done it without Brody.
Nicolas Brody: [ mumbling ] Happy to help.
David Estes: I-Im sorry, what?
Nicolas Brody: Happy to help.
David Estes: Yes, its your mouth, it’s so small, its hard to get the words.
Nicolas Brody: Happy… to… help…
David Estes: Saul, I want you to do the interrogation.
Saul Berenson: With all due respect, David, I think Carrie should do it.
David Estes: Are you sure Carrie is emotionally stable enough for this?
Saul Berenson: What makes you think shes not?
David Estes: Well, just look at her!
[ reveal Carrie spazzing out ]
Saul Berenson: David, is it because shes a woman?
David Estes: No, its because shes washing down pills with white wine.
Saul Berenson: I trust her, David.
David Estes: Sorry, Saul, I cant do it.
Carrie Mathison: Whats going on here, David? Are you guys talking about me? Were you talking about me? Oh, hi, Brody! Are you leaving your wife for me? Im just kidding… ah ah ah, ha ha…
Saul Berenson: Listen, Carrie, for some reason, David doesnt want you to do the interrogation.
Carrie Mathison: No! David, no, no! David, no, no! David, no, no, no!
Saul Berenson: She makes some good points, David.
David Estes: Carrie, why dont you give us a minute?
Carrie Mathison: And do what?
Saul Berenson: Would you like to pin some pictures to that corkboard?
Carrie Mathison: Yes, I would really like that! [ she retreats to the corkboard ]
Saul Berenson: She loves her corkboard. David, shes only let me down every time I trusted her. Give me one reason not to trust her again.
David Estes: Well, she had sex with the last person she interrogated.
Saul Berenson: Give me one more reason.
David Estes: Well, look what she did to that corkboard in, like, ten seconds!
[ reveal corkboard completely filled ]
Nicolas Brody: I have to go — my familys gonna wonder where I am.
David Estes: Can you not open your mouth any wider?
Nicolas Brody: I have to go.
David Estes: Did you just do all your breathing through your nose, then?
Carrie Mathison: [ holding up drawing ] Hey everyone, look, I made a drawing of me and Brody kissing… for the investigation.
Nicolas Brody: Thats a secret that only everyone knows!
David Estes: Well, this couldnt get any worse…
[ suddenly, Brody’s daughter enters, brooding ]
Saul Berenson: Oh no, Brodys daughter.
Dana Brody: Dad? Dad, are you here? Dad? Dad? Dad, are you here?
David Estes: Howd she walk into a CIA facility?
Saul Berenson: She just shows up places.
Dana Brody: [ standing next to Carrie ] Dad, who is this? When are you coming home, Dad?
Carrie Mathison: Hi Dana, Im Carrie! Im your new mommy!
Dana Brody: Dad, no!
Nicolas Brody: Carrie, enough! You leave me and my family alone, do you understand?
[ suddenly, Carrie starts really freaking out, her face all over the place ]
David Estes: Oh no, this isnt good: there goes the chin!
Saul Berenson: Shes having one of her jazz freak-outs.
David Estes: Just look at her, its like she makes her mouth turn fully upside down! Her eyes seem to be looking five directions at once! Its like her whole face is chewing gum!
Saul Berenson: Shes a rock, David, nothing gets to her.
Carrie Mathison: David, David, Glavid, Ron!
Saul Berenson: Shes the best in the biz.
David Estes: No, I made my decision: Carrie is not doing the interrogation.
Saul Berenson: Let me tell you something one of only ten rabbis once told me. Sometimes, wisdom is found in the craziest people.
David Estes: What?! Okay, you convinced me. Carrie can go with it.
Nicolas Brody: Shes already in there, and shes already having sex with him.
[ reveal Carrie making out with the suspect, as Dana enters [
Dana Brody: Dad, are you there? Dad, I hit something with the car, Dad.
