Synopsis: Ray works for MI6, Claire for the CIA. She burns him in Dubai. Jump ahead five years: he sees her in Grand Central and confronts her. Both now work in industrial security for corporate giants whose CEOs hate each other. Flashbacks fill us in: is it coincidence that he sees her in Grand Central? In about a week, one of the firms is going to announce a revolutionary product. Under the guise of helping that corporation's rival, can Ray and Claire work their own theft and find an independent buyer? To work together, using the corporate rivalry to their advantage, they would have to trust one another - difficult, if not impossible. Or, is one playing the other?

You charm me, you seduce me,

you screw me,

then you drug me

and ransack my hotel room;

And how sick is this? You know, the last

thing I remember before I passed out

was how much I liked you;

All right; You don't look crazy,

which is the only reason

why I'm not screaming

- for a security guard right now, but; ; ;

- I can't believe you're going this way;

(LAUGHS) Wait; Is this a joke?

Is that what it is?

Do you have any idea how far my ass

was hanging out because of you?

Did I win something?

I woke up the next morning,

I went back to the consul;

I practically crawled over glass

to get a copy of the guest list;

I spent the next 24 hours trying to figure out

if you were working for Mossad,

the Syrians or the Russians;

- And which was it?

- Still working for the CIA?

Okay, I think we're done now;

American Consulate, Dubai,

you and me, Fourth of July, 2003;

Find someone else to bother;

- Red, white and blue margaritas;

- Stay away from me;

I had a knee brace, you had toe rings;

First toe ring I ever saw, by the way;

You follow me, I'll scream;

I took vacation time to find you! Five years;

And every time I walked into an evaluation; ; ;

- I'm warning you for the last time;

- ; ; ;I was waiting for them

to throw your picture on the screen and say,

"So, Ray, anything you care to tell us

about Dubai?"

- You are harassing me!

- So who the hell are you?

Oh, no; You?


- You're the drop;

- You're my contact?

You're acting like

I owe you an apology;

Knock yourself out;

You were an assignment; You're a big boy;

You knew what you were doing;

I can see it's really been eating at you;

An Ml6 case officer takes a strange girl

from an embassy party

back to his hotel room

where he has an unsecured briefcase
