The Americans (2013) s06e04 Episode Script

Mr. And Mrs. Teacup

1 Previously on The Americans Mom.
Are you? Go back to your car.
Now! You were supposed to do what you were told to do.
- I thought you were-- - You left your position.
If anybody else on the team did that, they'd be finished.
I think there's a lot to talk about here.
There isn't, Philip.
Here's a new target.
He's a supervisor at the warehouse where Altheon ships and does quality assurance for the sensors.
What do they need the sensor for? I ca-- I can't.
OLEG: Some very powerful people are out there to get rid of Gorbachev.
We want you to find out what your wife is doing and tell us.
And if you have to-- stop her.
They want us to be just like them.
I don't want to be like them.
And neither do the people back home.
You haven't talked to anyone back home in over twenty years.
Neither have you.
PHILIP: Your English is very good.
OLEG: I lived here.
Worked for us at the embassy.
Did you like it here? I don't know.
It's different.
What about you? I've been here a long time.
Sometimes, it's even hard to remember back home.
(sighs) One thing I learned here is that they are not crazy.
We can make peace with them.
Now maybe is the best chance we'll ever get.
That's why I'm here.
I don't really understand what's going on.
What you said before (clears throat) The people running the Centre, we believe, are actively trying to get rid of Gorbachev.
And they can't stand the progress.
It's a threat to them.
Our country having any kind of openness or freedom.
They think it means that we won't be communists anymore.
Who's on the other side? Arkady Ivanovich.
He is deputy chief of Directorate S.
Everybody in the whole country who is looking forwards and not backwards.
Everybody inside the organization who is supporting Gorbachev.
Why did you leave? Wasn't for me.
And there was (sighs) There's something rotten about it.
You have to believe me when I say my wife would never do anything to hurt our country.
If you knew her We know how loyal she is.
But that loyalty can be used.
We have to know what she's been up to, to figure this out.
The details.
Mostly, what you'd expect.
The Summit.
She's been trying hard to get, uh, some kind of radiation sensor.
She went after an old source of ours, Lyle Rennhull, Air Force general.
He ended up dead.
(sighs) They are following me now.
I was clean tonight, but, uh, we can't meet in person again.
Hello? Elizabeth? How was work? Fine.
You want one? (walkie-talkie clicks) (walkie-talkie clicks) (beeping) (alarm blaring) (blaring continues) (silenced gunshot, glass shatters) (blaring continues) (silenced gunshot, glass shatters) (indistinct conversation in distance) (beeping) (door creaks) (silenced gunshots, glass shatters) (clattering) - Do you smell that? - What? MAN: Smoke.
MAN: Start the sweep.
Go towards the south.
They got the lights here, too.
I'll get Eddie.
It's not coming from the storeroom.
Copy that.
I'm online.
- (silenced gunshot) - (groans) (sirens wailing in distance) Hey! - (silenced gunshot) - (grunts) (silenced gunshot) (wailing continues) (breathing heavily) MAN: Hey, what's going on in there? There's someone down here.
In the cages.
- (silenced gunshot) - (groans) Copy that.
(wailing continues) Eddie, can you read me? - (grunting) - Eddie? (tires squeal) MAN #2: You check the cages.
I'll check Quality Control.
(wailing continues) (walkie-talkie clicking rapidly) (engine starts) (sirens wail louder) (sirens wail louder) (tires squealing) (sirens wailing) Well, thanks for squeezing me into your calendar.
(chuckles) I'm a popular girl.
Every time I come home, all my high school friends want to hang out.
Plus Dad obligations.
(sighs) How is Michigan treating you? Hmm? You still dating that boy? No, I dumped his ass.
I didn't like him.
Beer? Coffee? - I just made a pot.
- Coffee? Yeah, I'm, like, up to ten cups a day now.
Junior year is killing me.
I'll have a beer.
So, what's new in the world of Jim Baxter? Just looking for the next opportunity.
Really? Yeah.
Would be nice to use my powers for good.
See the world, maybe.
Do some non-profit work or something I don't know.
I think you should run away to Fiji and become a coconut farmer.
I'll consider it.
Guess where I'm going over Thanksgiving? - Where? - Greece.
With my roommate and a bunch of girlfriends.
How's your dad feel about you missing Thanksgiving? He's not thrilled.
That's why I came home this weekend.
- But he'll get over it.
- Yeah.
So, are you seeing anybody? (chuckles) Not really.
You're stuck.
(tongue clicks) I am? Yeah.
You're too great to be stuck.
You should have the job, the relationship, everything you want.
You just gotta seize the day, you know? I'm working on it.
PAIGE: When I'm sitting there-- I feel-- I'm into it, but-- are you gonna sleep tonight? You'll learn to.
(sniffles) Did you get what you needed? No.
(clears throat) It's like that.
A lot.
I went out with a bunch of friends from my Sociology class.
This one guy's brother came with us.
His name's Brian.
Really cute.
I think he liked me.
That's nice.
He's an intern for Charles Bennett, the Congressman from Florida.
He's on the-- - (door opens, closes) - Paige? I saw your car.
What do you need? Food? Laundry? Ah.
Keep going.
Anyway, this guy Brian is an intern for a congressman on the Armed Services Committee.
His brother's birthday is Friday, people are meeting up at this bar Right back into it, is this how it is? I can go.
We talked about what happened.
It's over.
Really? It's okay, Dad.
No, I don't think it is.
He was troubled.
He killed himself.
Mom tried to stop him.
Why did he do that, do you think? Why did he kill himself, Elizabeth? I'm sure there was a reason.
You'd have to ask him.
Sometimes bad things happen in the world, and you have to-- Yeah, don't-- please don't tell me about the world, Paige.
Why not? We live in the world, Philip.
If you guys are gonna fight, - I'm-- I'm leaving.
- We're not going to fight.
There's no point.
He loves me.
He loves you.
But somewhere-- something got lost.
This work can get to be too much for people, even the best ones.
I'm so proud of you, Paige.
Really proud.
And listen, forget about this intern-- What? Why? If you want to date someone, great.
If you want to go after someone as a source for information, when you're ready, great.
But you don't mix the two things.
I-I won't.
And you're not ready to go after a source.
Not by a long shot.
That takes-- Let's remember the goal.
You're gonna work in the State Department.
Maybe the CIA.
Maybe the Defense Department.
The most important thing is to protect you and to get you ready.
(dog barking in distance) You were out of line, with Paige.
- I'm her father.
- We have a deal.
Well maybe we need to renegotiate our deal.
You're happy to have Henry do whatever you want.
You put her life in danger.
Her life was not in danger.
It won't happen again.
How do you know that? Because she learns from her mistakes.
(scoffs) Breland.
Last one before Christmas.
Why? She's, uh-- She's not coming home for Thanksgiving.
She's going to Greece with her friends.
That's a problem.
We need to hear what they're sayin before the summit.
I'm going downstairs.
Don't wait up.
(intercom buzzes) (sighs) Mm-hmm.
Latest Breland recording.
Haven't listened to the whole thing yet, but the CIA thinks a General Balashov might resign because Gorbachev didn't consult him about a short-range missile deal in the negotiations.
While they were discussing it, they kept talking about "our guy inside" and how he couldn't get away right now.
They have a human source.
Sounded like it.
Couldn't tell if he was here or there.
But could be someone on the negotiating team.
(sighs) Something else came up.
You reported that Stan Beeman's wife talked about a case he was still working in Counterintelligence.
It involved a Soviet couple.
One of our couriers went over to the Americans.
Defected with his wife and her child.
It could be them.
See if you can find out.
If it is, he has to be dealt with.
Bad enough, a courier.
But this one was a player on our national hockey team.
After they debrief him, he'll go right into their propaganda machine.
Picture him in Time magazine, talking about how terrible we are.
What should we do next with Paige? Another movie? Honestly it's It's all good.
It's almost like going back there myself.
(knock on door) Henry on line three.
Hey, Dad.
I got a message you called.
What's up? Oh, yea-- not much.
I just hadn't-- Stop! Stop! W-What? What happened? Sorry.
Not you.
Stop! (sighs) Sorry about that.
Those guys are so annoying.
Okay, what were you saying? Just hadn't talked in a while.
D-Didn't you guys have another game? Uh, no.
This afternoon.
Brockton Moore.
Are-- Are they good? Well, this year, yeah, but next year Coach was telling Jordy that we're gonna be the best class he's had in years.
We're probably gonna win League.
Also Jordy thinks I'm gonna be Captain.
Pretty cool, right? Oh.
What? I mean, yes, of course it is.
But what? There's no easy way to say this, Henry, but we've been having a-- a rough patch at work I thought you said things were looking up.
I know, but they're not.
What-- What are you saying? Look, I know how much you love St.
I do too.
And next year is your senior year and all.
Look, Dad, I-I don't understand what you're saying.
You know we've expanded and renovated and getting new people and equipment and Yeah.
I took out a big loan to do all that and then business just didn't jump the way I thought it would.
I'm not sure if (sighs) how we can pay for your tuition next fall.
Henry? Yeah.
I mean, I mean, I am trying to think of ways, but Henry? Yeah, look, I I gotta get back to class, Dad.
I'll-- I'll talk to you later.
(sighs) He's in Room 1203.
We're cycling past every eight minutes.
Hank just came out.
Julie's next.
We need to follow an FBI agent.
We're looking for a man who was probably just moved into a safehouse.
Likely with his wife and her seven-year-old son.
Hopefully this FBI agent will lead us there.
He won't be looking for surveillance, but we'll have to be very careful.
I already know some of his routes.
Don't use Julie on this one, she's too inexperienced.
That's it.
(elevator bell dings) (indistinct conversation) (camera shutter clicking) STAN: I said to him, that's great.
You guys want to stay together after you graduate? Great.
But you might want to think twice about the same apartment thing.
You're twenty-one years old.
- You have no idea.
- (chuckles) I just-- I just want him to have a life.
He listen? What do you think? (both chuckle) You ever worry about money? I got a government job.
No alimony.
They match whatever I put into my retirement account.
- Wow.
- And I'm not taking trips to Europe every year - sorry - Yeah.
but we don't have any big problems.
Why? Is everything okay? Yeah, yeah.
I don't know.
(sighs) It's just in business, there's always this pressure about growth, that if you're not growing, you're not succeeding.
But why? When you think about it, what is so bad about staying the same? Not taking on more responsibilities, more headaches, more time.
Bills keep coming either way.
I think of what my father told me-- the more you want, the more you get.
And that's both good and bad.
You rich yet? I wish.
Actually, it's not good, Elizabeth.
How bad is it? It's bad.
It's just not adding up.
Maybe I moved too fast.
The expansion the extra people I know.
I keep forgetting their names maybe you just need to cut back.
I just don't see how cutting back would fix it.
You'll figure it out.
I'm trying but I'm, uh-- I'm not sure.
I told Henry that I'm not sure we can pay his tuition next year.
How did that go? (sighs) I don't know.
(sighs) Well.
He's your department.
(sighs) (sighs) How's Paige? She's fine.
You know, you can ask her yourself.
I'm not keeping her from you.
I know.
What about you? What? I'm tired.
All the time.
I looked at some of your paintings in the basement.
I liked the one of the woman in the kitchen-- with the broken eggs? That's my least favorite.
Why? Too sentimental.
When I first got sick when I found out about it I kept thinking, well, okay, at least I've got the work, it'll be there forever, it's the best of me.
Something to leave behind.
But really who cares? Who cares? All those hours just Honestly, I wish I'd spent them with Glenn, just being with him, doing I don't know what.
Just Doesn't matter Sit.
(telephone ringing in distance) GLENN: Hello? Oh, hey, Martin.
- (speaking indistinctly) - (sighs) Try the vase.
You got a-- You got a strong stroke.
(scoffs) (laughing) It's terrible.
No, it's just flat.
Well, it is a piece of paper.
You see how the light hits the vase? Yeah.
Don't touch that.
Everything else, make a little bit darker.
And don't be afraid to use your fingers to smudge it.
Keep working.
Start from the dark, work towards the light.
Who was on the phone? - You know Martin Gurrin.
- Yeah.
Some of the guys are gonna watch the World Series at his house tomorrow, with one of the Russians.
Well, you should go.
I don't know I don't really want to watch the game without you.
Oh, I've lost interest in baseball.
- (chuckles) - I can't believe I ever liked baseball.
I could take you.
A party's still a party.
(chuckles) No one wants to see someone like this.
Don't say that.
I've taken sicker people places.
You know, I'd be there, have your wheelchair, your meds Oh, you make it sound fabulous.
Maybe you should get out, honey.
For the last time? I think it'd be good for everyone-- change of scenery, little baseball (telephone rings, indistinct conversations) This about the fur coat? Nope.
Conrad Monts.
Monts Monts Yeah, the guy trying to build the air rights complex over I-375.
Yeah, I was gonna push through wiretaps on Clyburn.
You think we should hold off, ask for both these guys at once? Well, in my opinion, yeah.
But have a look, see for yourself.
See, the thing we're gonna have to deal with-- Beeman.
I'll be right down.
We went up again on Burov yesterday.
Goes to the school, eats out, then goes back to his hotel.
How long are you gonna stay on him? Another twenty-four.
I told you we're stretched thin.
Well, you'd have to get pretty lucky.
I'm trying to keep some guys on him a couple times a week.
So, Mr.
and Mrs.
Teacup are giving everybody a headache.
Relocation just called.
They want us back in there.
What? They can't do their job? Both of them keep saying they need you.
Jesus Christ, Dennis.
I'm done babysitting those lunatics.
I-- I've done everything I can.
Relocation doesn't complain a lot.
Let's help them out.
See what the problems are and check in on them every couple of days until they go.
You got no one who can take this over? Would I be asking? (sighs) (Eddie Rabbitt's "Drivin' My Life Away" plays) well, the midnight headlights blind you on a rainy night steep grade up ahead, slow me down, makin' no time but I gotta keep rollin' those windshield wipers slappin' out a tempo keepin' perfect rhythm with the song on the radio oh but I gotta keep rollin' ooh, I'm drivin' my life away lookin' for a better way for me ooh, I'm drivin' my life away lookin' for a sunny day well, the truck stop cutie comin' on to me tried to talk me into a ride said I wouldn't be sorry but she was just a baby hey, waitress, pour me another cup of coffee pop it down, jack me up, shoot me out flyin' down the highway lookin' for the mornin' ooh, I'm drivin' my life away lookin' for a better way for me ooh, I'm drivin' my life away lookin' for a sunny day well, the midnight headlights blind you on a rainy night steep grade up ahead, slow me down, makin' no time but I gotta keep rollin' those windshield wipers slappin' out a tempo keepin' perfect rhythm with the song on the radio oh but I got to keep rollin' ooh, I'm drivin' my life away lookin' for a sunny day well, the truck stop cutie comin' on to me tried to talk me into a ride said I wouldn't be sorry but she was just a baby hey, waitress, pour me another cup of coffee pop it down, jack me up, shoot me out flyin' down the highway lookin' for the mornin' ooh, I'm drivin' my life away lookin' for a sunny day ooh, I'm drivin' my life away lookin' for a better way yeah And you just-- a hand to the rail.
There you go.
All right, real slow.
There you go.
Now just turn around and hang on to me.
I'll let you down slow, okay? Nice and slow.
- Okay? - Yeah.
I wouldn't describe it that way.
I'll be with you the whole time.
ANNOUNCER: to the Minnesota Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St.
Paul for game 6 between the visiting St.
Louis Cardinals and the Minnesota Twins, on this cold, cloudy day where the temperature's in the 30s.
Uh, why are they Twins? Twin Cities.
Uh, yeah, in the state of Minnesota, the cities of, uh, Minneapolis and St.
Paul are so close together, they function as one big city.
And when they start to play? Uh, in about fifteen minutes or so.
Could I get-- Can I have some water? Sure.
- Twins fans have packed The Dome - Excuse me.
and are making themselves heard Hey.
You okay? Can I make you a plate or something? Go.
Save the world.
We're fine here.
Love you.
(indistinct conversations) I shouldn't have come.
It's-- It's good to be out.
- Yeah, maybe for you.
- (chuckles) but he did pitch very well against the Cardinals in Game 3.
The one thing to remember is that the Minnesota Twins are gonna be playing this game today like it's Game Seven because if they lose this ball game, they will be going home and have a long winter.
For that reason I think Les Straker will be pulled early if he gets into trouble.
We might even see Reardon, their ace reliever HOLLIE: Do you need anything? Martin tells me you're an artist? I was.
You still are.
I-I'd love to see some of your work some time.
Uh, I have to check on the kitchen.
Then the Cardinals came back and used their speed at home to take the lead in the series.
It would seem that the Twins would have the major advantage I don't feel good.
What? Okay, okay, okay.
Oh, God - Oh, shit! - Okay, okay.
Hold on.
Let me grab something.
GLENN: Hey, no, I'm here-- I'm here-- I'm here.
I'm here.
I'm here.
It's okay.
Don't worry.
I'll get some towels.
- Thank you.
- It's okay.
Babe, you're okay.
You're okay.
What am I doing here? We're gonna get you home.
(groans) GLENN: Okay.
Uh, I-I can help.
Uh Okay.
- Why am I here? - It's okay, baby.
It's okay.
It's okay.
It's okay.
It's okay.
It's okay, baby.
We're gonna get you home.
Okay? Okay.
It's okay.
NESTERENKO: I just wanted to say I'm sorry.
About your wife.
Um, it must be very hard.
I had an idea earlier in the pizza restaurant.
From what you were saying.
It's a very hard thing.
I imagine it's hard to concentrate on our work.
With-- With this going on.
But other times, it feels like it might-- Oh, shit! Hey, no, I'm here - I'm here-- I'm her.
