that makes it possible to circumvent

the Secret Service.

I see.

As long as leaks occur,

no government department is secure.

Our military and naval secrets...

our relations with foreign governments...

The most intimate details of the

executive department are in jeopardy.

I understand, sir.

I've gone as far as I can,

using the regular channels of the law.

Now something else

has to be done.

That's why I sent for you.

Will you arrange for my

leave of absence?

You'll have to get out of the Navy

without anyone knowing why.

Not even our friend Admiral Dewey.

In fact, no one must know about this,

except you and me.

You'll have to change your identity.

Drop out of sight completely.

Even your intimate friends

mustn't know where you are.

Or what you're doing.

Very well, sir.

It may take you months...

or you may fail... entirely.

In any event, this is OUR game.

Yours and mine.

But I don't want you to even

communicate with me.

Unless you have some vital information.. or

...or your life is in danger.

You must act on your own,

independent of all else.

Now, when it IS necessary

for you to reach me...

Put this mark on your envelope.

And I'll instruct Mr Andrews

to deliver it to me unopened wherever I am.

Yes, sir.

Until I receive an envelope from you

with this mark on it, you and I have never met.

This meeting never occurred.

You simply attended the ball

at the White House, and I was alone.

In my study.

I understand, sir.

I'll do my best.

I'm sure you will.

- Goodnight Mr President.

- Goodnight Lieutenant.

You want to play?

Yeah... don't mind if I do...

if you don't make it too steep.

What about 25?

Jake with me!

I gotta carry it for protection.

Yeah... with all these bank robberies going on,

I don't blame you.
