Dana: "The hell?"
Finn: "What? I was just coming to say hi. You really are the worst. Anyway, you're like famous at school now..."
Dana: "For calling Tad a douche?"
Finn: "No, everybody does that. It was the part where you claimed your dad was a Muslim. That's, quote, a brand-new kind of crazy."
Dana: "The dean called my mom. She was even less amused than generally."
(He frames her, letterboxed, with his hands.)
Finn: "I'm picturing you in a burka."
(Her middle finger creeps up into the frame. They are cute.)
Saul: "For the sake of America, David, I'm trying to verify this story of this lady."
Estes: "Our best intel says Nazir's in Afghanistan. How on earth can I dissuade Special Ops from thinking this ends with our soldiers ambushed and dragged through Beirut? Especially when I believe that too?"
Saul: "I also kinda believe that, David, but..."
Estes: "Everyone except Carrie does, right?"
Saul: "Yeah, but what else is new."
Estes: "Okay, well, it's your call. And thanks, by the way, for keeping her on such a short leash. Good job there."
Saul: "Can I remind you that I didn't want her here in the first place? Bitch crazy! Are you actually surprised she ran off and had this little adventure?"
Estes: "No, but I also wouldn't be surprised if she turned out to be right."
Saul: "Yeah, me neither. Right now, though, I'm just concerned with figuring out if this lady is for real, or if Carrie just desperately wants it to be real."
The answer is: Both. Which is why this conversation -- or the parts she can hear, really -- drives her right up the wall and down the other side. As usual, the best acting Danes does is with no words at all, so there's not much currency in describing her unspooling at this juncture, but after a long and lonely time of wigging out in the safehouse bedroom, she runs straight out that mother and up onto the roof, which is where Saul finds her.
Saul: "Oh, Peanut. You gotta come back inside. Anybody could see you."
Carrie: "I mean, it's not lost on me why people don't trust my judgment. Why you didn't even want me here..."
Saul: "Carrie, it's because you are great, okay. I don't want to break you."
Carrie: "It's gotta suck for you to be the one to decide. I get that."
