Vaughn: You’ve been reading that novel for hours. What is it?
Sydney: It’s a spy novel and it’s really good. It’s about a man who is recruited by the C.I.A. to work in counterintelligence doing code breaking, but he becomes embroiled in the world of espionage.
Vaughn: That sounds exciting.
Sydney: Yeah, he’s sent on a mission to infiltrate a foreign spy organization and to feed them misinformation. I’d love to be a spy.
Vaughn: You wouldn’t really want to live the life of a spy, would you? You’d have to live a double life, not being able to tell your friends and family that you’re an operative.
Sydney: I wouldn’t care if I could go on clandestine missions to thwart and sabotage the enemy. Working for the C.I.A. would be a dream come true.
Vaughn: You’d have to keep a lot of secrets, not divulging classified information.
Sydney: Yes, so?
Vaughn: Loose lips sink ships.
Sydney: What are you trying to say?
Vaughn: Well, no offense but I think your cover would be blown after about five minutes!
