- You too, you old Kraut.

- Yours?

- Yeah.

This is what you did with your

share of the plunder.

Nice polish, but getting old.

Like you.

- She's got a great engine.

- How's yours?

I keep in shape.

By the way, I never thanked you for

covering for me on that NAAFI deal.

- How did you beat the rap?

- I didn't.

It was either jail or work for Ross.

He thought a crook like me

would be wasted inside.

He was right. Your idea was brilliant.

So brilliant, I'm still on

suspended sentence!

Her Majesty's Government

is doing good business.

A cover might as well be profitable.

- I won't ask where the profits go.

- It's only pocket money.

I believe that as much as I believe that

crazy Colonel Stok story of yours.

He has as much intention

of defecting as you.

- He convinced me.

- Really?

You can make up your own mind. I've

arranged for you to meet Stok.

You're going to the East.

- Remember, you're Edmund Dorf.

- How can I forget?

- You have the address?

- Yep.

And my Luger pistol, my cyanide pills

and my inflatable Batman suit.

59, Marx-Engels-Platz.


Wait here.

Me British.

You Tarzan.

Admit I scared you, English.

I'm Colonel Stok.

- Good afternoon.

- I'm sorry about arresting you.

Have some tea. It was a simple device

to avoid suspicion.

- As usual, there is no milk today.

- And so Russian tea was invented.

- Alright, Colonel Stok, I'm listening.

- You are in a hurry!

We must get to know each other, English,

if we are to trust each other.

I wish to defect. But

there are conditions.

What do you want?

- I want colonel's pay for life.

- Don't we all?

- A house in the country.

- How many bedrooms?

It doesn't matter, but I

must have a big garden.

I'm a peasant at heart and want

to grow roses in my old age.
