best dialogue
CORMAN: "Everything I could find suggested that the satellite was crashed on purpose."
MADELINE: "Do you know by whom?"
C: "I was working on that when you called me. But everything that I could see leads back to Oversight or Center."
OPERATIONS: "Can you think of a reason why Oversight would intentionally crash a satellite containing valuable data right into the heart of a terrorist base?"
C: "I don't know. Not unless…"
M: "Go on."
C: "Well, if the data was useless. Providing the enemy with useless intel would distract them for years"
M: "You're very astute"
C: "Thank you. But Michael and Nikita… (pause) were sent in to make it look convincing. To make every effort to retrieve the data. But Michael won't fail."
M: "You've put the pieces together quite well."
C: "And if Michael dies trying…will make it look all the more convincing."
O: "Very good Mr. Corman."
M: (to operatives) "Take him to containment."
