IN THE CLOSET:

JACK:

Got him.

ON THE SCREEN:

Back on screen, ANATOLY places a hand on KASIMOV'S shoulder

as if he had just anointed him.

IN THE CLOSET:

In the closet, JACK types the name into a computer and cross

checks -- "MIEDIEV" comes up, then "posting/American

consulate/Kiev."

JACK turns and nods to a WHOREHOUSE WAITRESS in costume in

the closet next to him, dressed in traditional Russian tunic

and virtually no bottom. She quickly leaves.

INT. SHABBY ROOM - NIGHT

We enter the room for the first time as the WAITRESS does.

She's carrying a tray with a bottle of vodka and two shot

glasses.

ANATOLY:

Now, we drink.

He pours them out and hands one to KASIMOV.

ANATOLY (CONT'D)

To friends.

KASIMOV:

Yes, Anatoly, yes.

JACK:

Cheers.

He drinks. He blinks. Something felt funny about that.

Dizzied, KASIMOV swoons and passes out on the floor. ANATOLY

moves to the closet door and opens it.

IN THE CLOSET:

ANATOLY reaches up to his face --

--and tears away a mask of flesh. He's no middle aged

Russian mobster, he's ETHAN HUNT, an American in his early

thirties. He gestures to KASIMOV contemptuously. JACK hands

ETHAN a hypodermic kit and he goes quickly back into the

room.

ETHAN:

(in English now)

Get rid of this scum.

Immediately, there is activity, and PEOPLE everywhere. TWO

OTHERS come into the room and carry KASIMOV out.
