Mission: Impossible III

Synopsis: A man named Owen Davian kills an IMF agent that was sent undercover by the legendary Ethan Hunt, who has retired from combat missions. Hunt now has a fiancé, Julia, who believes that he works for the traffic department when he really trains younger IMF agents to go into combat. He is assigned to his last mission. His mission, should he choose to accept it is to capture Davian, who is selling a toxic weapon called the rabbits foot. But Davian is reckless, cruel, and deathly. He promises Hunt that he will find Julia, hurt her, and Ethan will be too dead to help her. The mission is no more different to others, its dangerous, smart, and impossible; but now it's personal.

- It's how they met.

- Really?

- Tell her the story.

- There's no story.

It is a good story. Tell the story.

First of all,

no one was ever good enough for Julia.

Oh, here we go.

Not spontaneous enough,

adventurous enough, funny enough...

You know what? No, that's not true.

You make it sound like I've never dated.

No one we liked.

- That is true.

- That is true.

Then she goes and gets in a chopper

that takes off from this lake...

- What was the name of that lake?

- Lake...

Lake Wanaka. Wanaka.

Wanaka. Thank you.

- He heard that?

- How did he hear that?

And the hospital's cool

with you taking three weeks?

Yeah, I'm not the only nurse

employed there, you know.

I'm psyched that you're going

to be my brother, man.

So am I, Rick.

No, it's awesome.

I think it's going to be sick.

Me, too, man.

I just got to get the phone.

- You rock hard.

- Okay.


- Is this Mr. Ethan Hunt?

- Yes, it is.

This is Ready-Travel Resort Services.

We'd like to offer you a chance to win

an all-expense-paid trip to Mexico.

We ran out of ice.

I'll be back in 10 minutes.

- Oh, no. Can't somebody else go?

- No, I got it.

I'll be right back. Hi, Betsy.

Thank you.


Thanks for coming.

Can't decide what size Slurpee to get.

I usually go for the 900-ouncer.

How's that party? Sorry I had to call you.

- Yeah, you should have come.

- You should have invited me.

- You know I would have.

- Thanks.

I know we joke about it, but I am always

this close to begging you

to stop training our people

and get your ass back in the field.

But that's not what you do anymore,

and so I respect that choice.

You know I do. Family's everything.

Come on, John. What's going on?

It's Agent Farris.

She was on an operation.

She's disappeared.

Been off-grid 11 hours.
