Woman 1: Welcome back, Agent Miles Kilo. CEO Jack Denham is waiting for you. Agent operations R&D department. Have a nice day.
Jack Denham: Keep it under wraps and get me the data as soon as you have it. Alright? Kilo. Thanks for coming. Walk with me. Outstanding work at Aspari. The thing with Drawl was a shock. I should have seen that coming - she's been sharing information with Chang for some time. Now, with him out of the picture and the files wiped, we've regained some of the initiative, but we're still vulnerable.
Woman 2: Could you sign this, Jack?
Jack: Next time make an appointment. I don't like surprises. The market is at a critical juncture and war is brewing between the corporations. Caymen-Global's been thumping their chest with this Panama Canal thing and developments in chip technology are at the front line of the war. There's an obvious risk that Drawl is going to defect. Now, we can't allow that to happen. But at the same time, she's too valuable an asset to terminate. Sam!
Jack: Still waiting for the numbers you promised. Something you're not telling me?
Sam: Sorry, I should have something by the end of the day.
Jack: Good man. Which brings us to the problem at hand. Look at her. Best biotech mind of her generation. Such a shame... Follow me. Now remember this is all confidential. Let's keep her guessing. Lily, thank God. If anyone can fix him up, it's you.
Lily: We do science here, Jack. Not miracles.
Jack: Nothing's more important than my people. Merit's been one of the most loyal. Let's get him back to work as soon as possible.
Calico: The chip was severely damaged, but the neural connections look healthy. We should be able to get something else in there.
Jack: Excellent, Calico.
Lily: I'm not so sure. The new chips are so much more powerful and these connections are old.
Lily: I was afraid of that. Kilo, hold him still. Shit! We're losing time! There. Trace memory convulsions from debugging. It'll damp out. But no more upgrades for him.
Merit: What did you do to me...
Lily: How are you feeling?
Merit: Like somebody stabbed me in the damned chest...
Lily: He's good to go, Jack. As good as he's going to be.
Jack: Thank you, Lily. Let's get moving. Listen, Kilo. I'm going to put together a... Package...To convince doctor Drawl to stay with us. But in the meantime, we need to keep an eye on her. Make sure she doesn't suddenly decide to try her luck out west. So you and Merit will be on surveillance duty for a few days.
Merit: Guess I'll go brief the set up team.
Jack: Above all, Kilo--keep Lily out of hostile hands...whatever that entails.
Woman 1: Receiving EuroCorp upgrade protocol.
Jack: I have a lot of confidence in you, Kilo. Once this unfortunate business has been taken care of we're going to have a little chat about your future. And from where I'm standing, it looks bright. Very bright.
