So when she tell me she have sing

in cafs in Europe, I give her a job.

Oh, you must all come tonight

and encourage her.

Uh, pardon me, please.

- Thank you.

- All right.


Ah, seorita, let me take your bag.

There is a good-looking

young American on the plane.

His name Cabot.

Get acquainted with him

and find out all you can about him.

Oh, uh, take this.

Please do not look so nervous.

All cameras must be collected

during the flight over the canal.

- Army regulations.

- All right with me, young lady.

Shows Uncle Sam isn't asleep.

My, isn't this cozy?

Tight fit though.


Please, this seat is occupied?

With things that

have no business being there.

- I'm sorry.

- Thank you.

Ah. Seor Halide, how are you?

Monsieur Manolo, welcome home.

Did you have a nice

vacation in Europe?

Eh, but of course.

Tell me, business she is still good here?

Oh, very good, except for your barber, Felipe.

He's in jail.


- [Chuckles] Eh, I should have expected.

- Why?

Because when you find a barber

who do not talk all the time...

it is very peaceful but suspicious.

Months of difficult research.
