Archer s02e12 Episode Script

White Nights

Not once, not ever has he volunteered for a dangerous mission, and now all of a sudden he's like "Let me go"?! On a night jump in the freezin-ass cold to kill a Finnish double agent? Please.
So I'm like "Yeah, let Archer go!" But she's like "Ray, it's your mission and that's final!" And why? Cause just between us gals and the C-130, I think she used to screw, ick, Nikolai Jakov, the head of the KGB! I know, right?! And I think Archer wanted this mission so he could cross into Russia cause he thinks Jakov might be his father! And y'all know me, I'm no gossip, but that's some scandalous-ass shit right there - What.
- Ray? If it's any consolation, you were right.
Oh, and try not to be unconscious too long.
It's super bad for you.
Hey thanks guys.
Just tell my mother I pulled a gun on you, all right.
This is to share.
Look at me! To share! You nut.
Got my fake documents, plenty of cash, so the crossing should be a breeze.
Drive to Saint Pete, grab a latte, then 400 miles to Moscow Putting me there right about the time Nikolai Jakov, head of the KGB, comes home for his borscht, only to find an unexpected dinner guest.
Who may be his son.
And for dessert, we will have the truth.
You hear that, Mother? After a lifetime of your secrets and lies, we will finally have the truth! And also hopefully shitloads of vodka.
Woo-hoooo! - Parachuuuuuuuuuuuuute! - Chief, why's the door still Wait, don't tell me he - just now jumped! - Yep.
Like just just now?! Yep.
You know he missed the drop zone by like, eight miles.

Hei, jãtkãt! Tãmã suomalainen laskurjo klubi? I was uh, asking if this was the Finnish Skydiving Club.

That's a broken zygomatic bone, plus I was unconscious for an hour! - Ooh, really? - Which is super bad for you! - Super bad, have you seen a neurologist? - Have a cat-scan tomorrow.
Well unless it's in Russia you'd just better cancel it! Well it's obviously not, and what? The mission you failed was right on the border and I think Sterling might be trying - to cross into Russia! - Why would he oh, is this about - Nikolai Jakov, the head of the KGB? - I who? - Who, nice.

Radio chatter about an American agent the KGB caught parachuting into Russia? - Oh my God, really?! - Hey, where's Archer? Probably hanging by his Achilles tendons in some KGB hellhole! Caught at border, taken to Vyborg?! Ray, get your purse and take some Midol, - you're going back for him! - Mmm, according to these notes from my doctor, a radiologist, and my new neurologist, I'm doing no such thing.
- You little! Okay, then Lana! - Yes? Start at the KGB field office in Vyborg, if he's not being held there go to Saint Petersburg, and if he's not there, you go straight to Moscow! - Undercover? - Wh-? Of course undercover! - As what, Russia's only black woman? - Damn it! I can't have this getting blabbed all over the agency, but oh God, someone has to go rescue my son! Before he talks to Nikolai Jakov! Well that someone needs to be fluent in Russian, a few contacts in the KGB wouldn't hurt could, um, this someone be from outside the agency? Nooo, no-no-no-no! Oh, now I know you two have had your little differences in the past, but Differences?! You remember he shattered my femur, right? Which is why I'm in New York, by the way, - I need all new pins put in it! - And I'm sure that must be - Oh! And he sodomized my fiancée! - You're still together?! Sorry, ex-fiancée! That`s what I meant to say.
Well, then it wasn't meant to be.
- I I don't even know how to respond to that.
- What is meant to be is your going to Russia to bring back my son before he does any damage.
- Or more damage.

- No! - Lana, please! I am not having sex with Barry! - You did it once! - By accident! Mostly.
And you were about to, when you thought it would get you my job! That was for work! This is just for Archer.
His life may very well depend on it.
- But he's such a douchebag - I know, dear but he's also my son.
Not Archer! Well, also very much Archer, - but I'm talking about Barry! - Who is, in fact, sitting right here.
So you wanna do it on the desk, or hallway, where you wanna knock this out? - Wherever.
