CIA Deputy Director Jake Keaton : How did we not know about this? This is an official order. "In the event all members in the line of succession are deceased, the Continuity of Government Subcommittee, or C.O.G.S., shall assume power."
[looking around the room]
CIA Deputy Director Jake Keaton : Why is everyone so damn calm?
Kurt Weller : I don't know, but Shepherd knew about the subcommittee. She put us here.
CIA Deputy Director Jake Keaton : How could she have?
Kurt Weller : Every time a tattoo exposed corruption, somebody lost their job. I replaced Mayfair at the FBI, you replaced Carter at the CIA.
[glancing over at two others]
Kurt Weller : Those two are now deputy directors of the CDC and the DEA.
CIA Deputy Director Jake Keaton : So all the tattoos were leading to this?
Kurt Weller : Shepherd said something about a reset. We are that reset.
CIA Deputy Director Jake Keaton : We're Shepherd's new government.
Kurt Weller : Which means that she's gonna try to wipe out the current administration, today. We can't stay down here.
Edgar Reade : How are we gonna find Shepherd's nukes?
Tasha Zapata : Nukes?
Edgar Reade : Damn it, Zapata, you shouldn't be here.
Kurt Weller : You need to go back to the hospital.
Tasha Zapata : Are you two done mothering me? Now who's gonna catch me up?
CIA Deputy Director Jake Keaton : I will.
Tasha Zapata : Since when do we work with the CIA?
Kurt Weller : Hospital or Keaton. Your choice.
CIA Deputy Director Jake Keaton : Shepherd's stockpile is either really well-hidden or we're looking in the wrong place.
Tasha Zapata : What if she did what every two-bit dealer does? Hide their stash in something else?
CIA Deputy Director Jake Keaton : Like packing heroin in coffee grounds.
Tasha Zapata : Right, so what are her coffee grounds? What hides nuclear material?
CIA Deputy Director Jake Keaton : Lead.
Tasha Zapata : Lead.
CIA Deputy Director Jake Keaton : Yeah, we should be looking for lead.
