(IMF headquarter)
Brassel: I've read your brief on Agent Farris, and the word you used was "beyond capable", that still stands, Mr.Hunt?
Ethan:Mr.Brassel -
Brassel: Does it stand?
Ethan: Yes, sir, it does.
Brassel: Because we've got a corpse downstairs that says otherwise. Killed by a detonator implanted in her skull through the nasal cavity.
Ethan: Mr. Brassel, it is unacceptable to judge Agent Farris' competence through -
Brassel: It is unacceptable that choclate makes you fat, but I've eaten my share, and guess what? Now I aprrove that Agent Farris' surveillance operation is based on your evaulation, which is a woman who allow herself to be captured. So you go to recover her, you encounte a dozen men, and you don't grab any of them?
Ethan: Our objective, Mr.Brassel, is to recover Agent Farris. Davian constructs a core business circle and those men there were not likely to be holding any important information.
Brassel: Who's drawing these conclusions? [turns to Musgrave] Is that you?
Musgrave: I am, sir, based upon -
Brassel: I'm not on you yet! You allowed Farris to board the chopper without a scan, that explosive device could have taken you all out! There's only one reason that you are sitting before me today, and that is luck! Because your operation was poorly conceived, and executed worse!
Musgrave: Two laptops were recovered, and -
Brassel: I'm awared of that. We've talked to the Tech-Department, and they doubt they can reconstitute the drives. "Crispy", I believe that's what they called them, worthless.
Musgrave: Mr.Brassel, as the Operation Manager of this office, I have the authority to -
Brassel: Excuse me, did you just throw a title at me, Mr.Musgrave? I don't care if your daddy plays golf with the president. This is Intelligence, so far I haven't seen any. You think that operation was worth the risk, Mr.Hunt? [Gets up] What do you know about Owen Davian? [Holding a pile of files] He's the man who brought Gas Centrifuge technology to Korea, from Pakistan; [chucks a pile of sheet in front of Ethan] he's also the man who sold Toxin Five, to the Armada Republic of Jihad. [chucks another pile in front of him] He's the man who provides, provides, and provides. [chucking paper at each word] AND he remained invisible, he's a goddamned invisible man. Wells, not Ellison, in case you want to be cute again. We can't find him. He knows it, it's emboldened him. I've been trying to bring Davian down since the day I got here. Do you know what I got for it?
Musgrave: It has never been confirmed that the Toxin Five theft was Davian -
Brassel: Mr.Musgrave, please don't interrupt me when I'm asking rhetorical questions. [To Ethan] Your operation has achieved one thing. You have reminded Davian that he is winning. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go and inform Mr and Mrs.Farris that their baby girl is killed in a head-on collision on I-98.
