Zach: "...Yeah, it's pretty sweet. Last time I got a car. Anyway, you can swing by any time. Best part is, I wasn't even actually lying! I guess I really am my father's son."
Kalinda: "Bao, I know you cyberghosted my IP addresses and that you wanted me to find you. It's because you are Mr. Bitcoin and you want to be discovered so that you can have sex with Occupy Wall Street."
I mean literally she says that: "Have you seen the Occupy Wall Street women? They're beautiful..."
Um, have you seen the Occupy Wall Street women? Because I don't know that we're talking about the same movement. Not that they're known for being ugly, but just... By definition when you're talking about 99% of a society, it's going to take more of a bell-curve shape, right? Sexiness-wise? Maybe that's her point. I have no idea what her point is. That nerds in this imaginary cryptographer world of people who can even hold a conversation -- much less deal with the semiotic onslaught that is an interaction with Kalinda Sharma -- they can still be led around by their little nerd boners.
Not saying that's untrue either, but it speaks to a lack of finesse or effort deeper in the story when you coast on those easy stereotypes, even when they're pretty much true. I don't have a dog in this fight -- I've spent years using nerds' sexual frustration to get things done, it is a very real force -- but the whole thing is just so shallow and silly and frustrating that a line like that really sticks out. The 72-virginsyness of it.
In short, Balaban's backup Treasury guys that have been around silently Agent Smithing in the background this whole time show up, and Kalinda leads them a merry chase up to Bao's room, where she's met by Bob Balaban -- wearing a tux -- but when they get inside the hotel room, Bao has cyberghosted himself completely out of the hardware, leaving only a creepy stalker note about how he may or may not have created Bitcoin, but he doesn't really care anymore because now all he cares about is fattening her up in a pit and then using her skin to create clothing that he can wear to make his transformation complete. Or suck on her toes or something, who knows. It's dumb.
