Brody: "I know what you're doing. And it's not going to work."
If you can tell so many lies at once that you explode the notion of a lie itself, you can do whatever you want to a person. The elasticity of reality, it's what all interrogation is based on, and brainwashing. Use the person's body as a weapon against his mind; chase him through the halls of his mind, pursued only by his own sense of self. Ego down. Change the perspective they're using to look at it, the thing they're protecting, and you change the leverage. Gravity goes a different way, suddenly.
(Possible targets for the emotional-pride and ego-down approach are the source's: Loyalty. Technical competence. Leadership abilities. Soldierly qualities.)
Stands to reason then, if you can tell so many truths at once that you explode the notion of truth itself, you could do the same thing. A deck of Red Queens. And the way this would work is that it's a sacrifice of self. Brainwashing is a way of making yourself God, for one person, in one tiny universe. The opposite of that, then: This is a sacrifice of self. Of acknowledging your own smallness in the universe. Inviting him to be less alone, with every truth; inviting him into a spell that heals you both. Not his ego down, but yours. Armor dropping to the floor.
"I'm just happy to be talking to you again."
How else would you define love?
Saul: "Are you kidding me with that stabbing move?"
Quinn: "Let's just say I did it on purpose, okay?"
Maybe he did. Maybe Peter knew it had to end like this, with a boy and a girl and a table between them. If so, then he's learning. There's a curve to it.
Quinn: "...Is she turning off the fucking cameras?"
Saul: "One by one. Not the mics, though. Settle."
ALONE AT LAST
"Alone at last."
She takes off his handcuffs. She lays the cards out, one by one. They consider them, together. In the movie it was the Queen of Diamonds, but that's not the Queen they're looking at now. She spreads them out. They make a picture, if you look at them right; they can tell your future.
"You said up at the cabin that you didn't have anyone to talk to. Did you... Did you ever find anybody? A friend? A therapist? Never went back to that support group, did you? Why?"
Brody: "I don't know."
"People always ask me about the war. Was it as bad as everyone says? I never know what to tell them. My interpreter was burned alive and then hung from a bridge."
