Berlin, 1989. Not a good year for building walls in East Germany. We had just won the Cold War. I was off to Moscow, a new assignment. Diane was on her way back to Washington and a promotion. We wouldn’t see each other for months. And just before I left… she asked the question. “What about us?” That’s when I said it. I’m not even sure why. I told her, if we’re alive in 20 years, let’s throw in the towel. Be a normal couple, lead a normal life.

  • Chuck: But you're a legend, Roan. Don't you understand that? So how can you just sit there and watch them die?
  • Roan: Because I'm not in love with one of the agents.
  • Chuck: I'm not- I care about them. I care about both of them. Besides, we heard what she said. Okay? To her, I'm just an asset.
  • Roan: No, you're not. Trust me. The lady doth protest too much. But, Charles, you have to ask yourself, is she worth dying for?
