Vaughn:You've been reading that novel for hours. What is it?
Sydney:It's a spy novel and it's really good.
It's about a man who is recruited by the C.I.A. to work in counterintelligence doing code breaking,
but he becomes embroiled in the world of espionage.
Vaughn:That sounds exciting.
Sydney:Yeah, he's sent on a mission to infiltrate a foreign spy organization and to feed them misinformation.
I'd love to be a spy.
Vaughn:You wouldn't really want to live the life of a spy, would you?
You'd have to live a double life, not being able to tell your friends and family that you're an operative.
Sydney:I wouldn't care if I could go on clandestine missions to thwart and sabotage the enemy.
Working for the C.I.A. would be a dream come true.
Vaughn:You'd have to keep a lot of secrets, not divulging classified information.
Vaughn:Loose lips sink ships.
Sydney:What are you trying to say?
Vaughn:Well, no offense but I think your cover would be blown after about five minutes!
