Alicia: What's the matter? Don't look so tense. Troubles? Well handsome, I think you'd better tell Mama what's going on. All this secrecy's going to ruin my little dinner. Come on, Mr. D., what is darkening your brow?
Devlin: After dinner.
Alicia: No, now! Look, I'll make it easy for you. The time has come when you must tell me that you have a wife and two adorable children and this madness between us can't go on any longer.
Devlin: I'll bet you've heard that line often enough.
Alicia: Right below the belt every time. Oh, that isn't fair, Dev.
Devlin: Skip it. We have other things to talk about. We've got a job.
Alicia: Oh. So there is a job.
Devlin: You, uh, you remember a man named Sebastian?
Alicia: Alex Sebastian?
Devlin: Yes.
Alicia: One of my father's friends, yes.
Devlin: He had quite a crush on you.
Alicia: I wasn't very responsive.
Devlin: Well, he's here. The head of a large German business concern.
Alicia: His family always had money.
Devlin: He's part of the combine that built up the German war machine and hopes to keep on going.
Alicia: Something big?
Devlin: It has all the earmarks of being something big. We have to contact him.
Alicia: Go on, let's have all of it.
Devlin: We're meeting him tomorrow. The rest is up to you. You've got to work on him and land him.
Alicia: Mata Hari. She makes love for the papers.
Devlin: There are no papers. You land him. Find out what's going on inside his house, what the group around him is up to, and report to us.
Alicia: I suppose you knew about this pretty little job of mine all the time.
Devlin: No. I only just found out about it.
