Gone fxcking feral. Berlin is the Wild West. If that bloody wall comes crashing down, we don't want to be under it. If the Russians get that list, we're all buggered sideways.
If it'd make you more comfortable, I could stand behind the mirror with everybody else. But it's a little crowded back there.
We were just going over your file. I see your Russian is excellent. An expert in escape and evasion. Proficient in intelligence collection and hand-to-hand combat. It's an impressive set of skills. Knowing the Reds as I do, she'll need to use every damn one of them.
It's an atomic bomb of information that could extend the Cold War for another 40 years.
Without that list, why shouldn't I take you outside and shoot you in the fxcking head?
You know those movies where the picture just starts to slow down... and melt? Then catch fire?Well... that's Berlin.
You know, I've been in Berlin a long time, and I think I know every doorman of every decent shithouse, borderline decent flophouse both sides of the wall.
It's like walking a tightrope or playing the bagpipes. You can either do it or you can't.
You expose this bastard, Satchel, and we'll hang him for treason. You might find yourself taking tea at Buckingham Palace.
Your library includes Larry Flynt?
-Champion of free speech.
This whole hungover, show-up-late, don't-know-which-way-is-up act, I'm not buying it. I trust you about as far as I can throw you.
-"It's a double pleasure to deceive the deceiver."
David Hasselhoff's in town.
-Lucky us. Berlin is truly doomed.
East Berliners stormed the West German embassies in Czechoslovakia earlier this week, as the Czech government has begun to wave the refugees through checkpoints with few questions. One has to ask how long the East Berlin government can hold on...
Oh, he tells me tears are something to hide
-And something to fear...
That's quite a view. 70 miles of barbed wire, 310 guard towers, 65 anti-vehicle trenches, 40,000 Soviet-trained, heavily armed frontier troops. All that, and 5,000 GDR citizens still had the brass balls to escape.
Look at all these hedonists. It's like a beautiful woman gone wrong.
We've been in the trenches long enough to know that at times like this Berlin has its own set of rules. I can give you information that will keep the balance. Now, are you in or out?
You smell like a Stasi officer. Shave off that moustache. Use that soap and cologne. It's from the West. You can't take anything from the East.
It should have been easy. The plan was sound. Whatever went wrong did so because someone wanted it to.
You know, a beautiful Italian girl once said to me, "David... you can't unfxck what's been fxcked."
It is the moment. Berliners have waited 28 years for. Even the East Germans seem exhilarated. A symbolic breach in the structure that cost hundreds of lives and separated friends, families and lovers for decades.
To win, first you have to know whose side you're on.
- In our line of work, that's right up there with black holes or "to be or not to be." You fight the good fight, and then one day you wake up and you realize that all you were was Satan's little helper.
So, what have I learned after all this time? After all the sleepless nights, lying to friends, lovers, myself? Playing this crooked game in this crooked town filled with backstabbers and four-faced liars? I'll tell you what I've learned. One thing and one thing only. I fxcking love Berlin!
Truth and lies. People like us don't know the difference.
-No, we know the difference, David. We choose to ignore it.
This was never about stopping the war. It was about saving your ass. You couldn't bear the embarrassment of the sins that we committed in the Cold War. And I was stupid enough to give my life for it.
-Yes, well, that's your job, isn't it?
We're choosing to bury this one, Broughton. Your mission never took place. This conversation... never happened.
