I hope you have a very good

reason for calling me out here.

About an hour ago two workmen

digging the foundations for

the IT Center found four

bodies in a very advanced

state of decomposition...

It seems that the site the

workmen were digging at

was an old Turkish graveyard.

Those skeletons are three

hundred years old. Apparently

they died from the plague.

Thas why they're covered

in lime. But thas not

the interesting part...

The bodies are not sufficiently

Decomposed for their age.

Let me show you...

One of the men cut himself

on the skeleton's ribs.

An ordinary cut,

or so it seemed...

But then, by the time

the medical staff arrived

he was already dead.

From the plague!?

We still don't know.

I want all the skeletons

vacuum-sealed, as well as

this body here. I'll inform you

later about where to send them.

And keep quiet on this.

Not a word.

So you weren't sent

to the exercise?

I guess they had to leave

someone in the city, grandpa.

I ain't your gandpa, sonny.

C'mon gandpa, relax.

They called from the

Chemistry department,

they'll be here

in a couple of minutes...

Can't wait...

Umm excuse me,

can I just ask you...

The train from Romania...

is running late, isn't it?

It just passed through...

You didn't see?

What do you mean...

passed through?

The trains are not

stopping today...

You know - this big

military exercise, and-

You didn't see the sign

at the entrance?

I have to make a phonecall...

Cell phones aren't working...

because of this military

exercise. Come this way...

I'll let you use a phone.

Watch out... The tanker's

on is way.

The station's closed and...

Here... use this phone...

The exercises our army is

carrying out in cooperation

with the NATO forces during

this night are planned to

Dial nine first.

Continue into the morning,

with a demonstration of

techniques for release of

hostages from the hands

of terrorist groups

Hey, fellas, is ilegal

to cross the tracks,

is dangerous...

Where you headed?

No worries, bro...

This stupid exercise

took so long, we figured...

Why wait for morning when we

can have a little fun

before the MP finds us...

An' we wanted to... show

our... American friend how

we party here in Serbia...

Here comes the spook...

Agent Milius.

Thas him?

Prisoner 611...

Thas your man.

Why is he in a

solitary confinement?

Has he caused any problems?

Thas the way it is.

Well get him ready.

You're leaving!

I hear you.

I said you're leaving!

I said - I can hear you!

Don't move!

So they've sent such

sweet things to get me?

You're not gonna shoot me...

There are enforced police

troops outside this building.

Do you really think

you can run away?

It was just my way

to say thanks...

for their hospitality.

Still nothing?

I have to call my wife,

She's gonna wait the whole

night at the station,

and I won't turn up...

She'll call the police...

Women... they always

assume the worst...

Cmon fellas, move along!

Don't you "move along" to me,

You know which unit I am in?

And this is an

American citizen here!

I always sh*t my pants when

I see you, scientist people.

Whas this?

Where's the security?

Don't you go complaining to me...

You want to spend the

night at the station...

Yo, don't you threaten me,

you know who I am?

Do you know who I am?

Whoa, easy...

Wassa matter, chicken?

Where's your courage now?

Stop joking!

Give the gun back!

Thas loaded!


Help! Somebody help me!


The GPS is definitely not working.

Thats because of

military exercises...


We should probably...
