Colonel Barker: I quickly drew up a plan. After identifying a pair of their operatives, I would make contact, informing them of my awareness of their conflict and their surveillance.

[[The Colonel turns his head to look over his shoulder, revealing Dexter, Patty, and Trish behind him.]]

Dexter: I can't believe /any/ government would sanction this kind of dirty scheme...
