Major Joy brings Jessica a satellite phone, so we can mix the usual Brody Family Stress into this less-complex-than-it-seems operation for the episode. Dana has gone back to being an asshole, and Mike Faber has made huevos rancheros for his pretend family. Major Joy, because she is a good sort and wants to see the best in people, fully reminds them not to ask him mission-crucial information: Just say hi, you love him, hang up the phone. Major Joy forgets to point her finger in Jessica's face when she says this.
Jessica: "Hey. Dana doesn't want to talk to you, because she is awful."
Nick: "That's okay. Just tell her I'm somewhere, doing something, and maybe one day everything will be okay. But probably not."
Jessica: "Brody, is there literally anything you can tell me, about all this?"
Major Joy: "Oh my God, what did I literally just fini..."
Mike Faber: "It's cool, he won't. She's just like this."
Nick: "Well, and now I have to go. Love you or whatever. You smell like Mike Faber even over the phone. Well done."
While Carrie reports on like, what is Roya Hammad having at her camera crew breakfast, Saul is back home staring a hole in Peter Quinn.
Saul: "But for real, what is he? Is he a demon? A sorcerer? Is he of our world?"
Estes: "He is, um, he's FBI. FBI liaison, in the field. He's quote wearing two hats today."
Spoiler Alert: The other hat is literally a limo-driver hat, but figuratively it is a Nick Brody-Shooting hat.
Carrie: "Do you guys think maybe that is Abu Nazir in that other van with El Mysterioso? He said he wanted to be directly involved. And it would really fix like everything that is wrong with my life, if it were him. Think about it. Nick Brody gave him to us, so that whole heroic narrative could actually come true. And I would have stopped 9/11 Part II thanks to being the world's foremost Abu Nazir expert, so probably I could have my job back and not have to be under Quinn anymore. Maybe that delusional lie I told Brody was neither delusional nor a lie!"
