A spy being interrogated by a superior can only guess at the mission, priorities and agenda behind the encounter.

Spy 1
mark my words

if people knew what we think, they’d know enough to be glad we’re on their side

but don’t hold your breath

it’s up to a guy like us to find our own gratification

I get a little . . . . physical sometimes walking around in a group of other people

I think about what the guy next to me doesn’t know about the guy next to him

I think about how much more I’ve got for him to not know about than he could possibly have for me to not know about.

look — you’ve got to be able to love the life!
