Do not discuss our problems.

Bring Viktor to us.

We will avenge Yuri...

...and protect ourselves

from the poison of the West.

Trust me.

O'Hare skybus leaving for downtown

in five minutes.

- How you doing, honey?

- Blow yourself.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

Good thinking.

He should be out any second.

He's going through customs right now.

You read the report Stobbs wrote

on the cleanhead bust?

Yeah. He said your performance

was adequate.

Adequate. Jesus Christ.

What a jerk.

- It's a personality thing, Art.

- Yeah.

Stobbs just doesn't like yours.

Ten to one

he doesn't speak English.

- Captain Danko.

- Yes.

I'm Detective Sergeant Gallagher,

Chicago Police Department.

- Glad to meet you.

- Thank you.

This is my partner,

Detective Sergeant Ridzik.

- First time in Chicago?

- Yes.

- You have a nice flight?

- Yes, fine.

- You hungry?

- No.

- Thirsty?

- No.

Hate to break up this romance,

but I'm parked in a red zone.

No offense.

We got a car waiting outside

for you.

Be about a half-hour drive to the city.

It's a nice drive. You'll enjoy it.

Nice night.

Been real hot lately.

Nothing hotter

than Chicago in August.

It's the humidity that gets to you.


You know, moisture in the air.

How's it been in Moscow?


No moisture.

Where'd you learn to speak English

so well?


Compulsory training.

Language school in Kiev.

Oh, yeah.

That's like as in Chicken Kiev.

Yeah, we had that

at my sister's wedding.

This Viktor Rosta, he must've

pissed off quite a few commissars...

...for them to send someone all

this way just to babysit him home.

What did he do? Take a leak

on the Kremlin Wall or something?

I gotta apologize for my partner,


You see,

he's just naturally suspicious.
