You look important.

Or, at least, your suit does.

Well, I can get you over the Wall.

Would you consider that important,

Frulein Schmidt?

A smart mouth to go with the suit.

Statements like that can get you

into a lot of trouble around here.

Or they can get you out of it.

Make yourself comfortable, why don't you.

Okay, Mr. Important-Suit.

Who are you and what do you want?

I'm here to have a chat about your father.

I don't have a father.

I don't mean your late foster father,

the mechanic.

I mean your real father.

Dr. Udo Teller.

- Hitler's favorite rocket scientist.

- That doesn't sound very friendly.

You're wasting your time.

I haven't seen him for 18 years.

Well, after the war,

he came to work for us.

He'd been enjoying the American dream.

Had a great job working

for the U.S. Nuclear Program...

...pleasant house in the suburbs...

...a new Cadillac and a fat little dog

called "Schnitzel."

Then, two years ago, he disappeared

like steam from a tea kettle.

Until now. This was taken

last week in Rome.

Which one is supposed to be my father?


I'm told that if your father's knowledge

gets into the wrong hands...

...things could get a little messy.

You know, end of the world.

That kind of thing.

What makes you think

I know where he is?

I don't think you do, but I think

you know someone who does.

Your mother's brother:

Uncle Rudi.

I've also been told

that your father was never...

...actually a Nazi.

He was forced to work for them.

So I'm here to help him.

- Why don't you help me.

- With what?

If I had 15 minutes,

we'd drink tea, eat biscuits...

...I'd talk, you'd laugh,

and we'd be on our way.

Unfortunately, I don't.

So my offer is come with me now...

...and be at a chic little hotel

in West Berlin in less than an hour.

Or stay here and spend the night

with the Russians...

...hanging from a pipe,

having your toenails removed.

That is what I was looking for.

Do you mind terribly if I borrow your car?

Could you pass me that brown paper bag

from my case, please?

Are they still following us?


Is there one of them?

Just hum if there is.

Is he looking at us?

Does he have just one hand

on the steering wheel?

When you hear something

that sounds like a gunshot...

Did you get him?

Let's hope he doesn't drive

as quickly as he moves.

I got news for you. He does.

Make a right.

And then an immediate left.

Nicely done.

Hold on.

Is he gone?

You know, I don't think so.

Reverse down the sidewalk...

...then drive around the block.

And, meet me back here.

You should look out the window.

You can't be serious.

He's trying to stop the car.

We're struggling here.

Why don't you take a shot at him.

Somehow it just doesn't seem like

the right thing to do.

First left, then immediate right.

- This road isn't going anywhere.

- It's taking us where we want to go.

- It's getting narrower.

- All part of the plan.

Put your foot down

and drive a little faster.

Good plan.

All we have to do is get over

two 20-foot walls and a minefield.

Now what?

Take another left through the window.

After you.

Follow me.

What are we doing here?

We're looking for Agent Jones.

Hug me.

Jones, reverse!

Step back.

This place isn't chic.

It isn't even a hotel.

No. But it's safer.

And the food isn't bad.

What's that? Smells like feet.

Expensive feet.

He's here.

Our commitment

to defend Western Europe...

...and West Berlin, for example...

...stands undiminished.

The United States will make no deal

with the Soviet Union...

...because the communist drive...
