=I'm traveling with an arms dealer.

=Hah-hah-hah, farming in the middle of the Indian Ocean off Somalia?//What do you expect me to harvest?

<167>
=So you got caught in Dubai, huh?

=That CIA agent Scarecrow is pretty crazy, isn't he.//But he's got a knack for getting money, so the States think he's pretty valuable. They keep him on a pretty long leash.
=They call him that 'cause he scares the crows away from the "gold farms."
=He may be a scarecrow, but he'll keep chasing you around forever. He's real stubborn.

=Like I care.


<168>

=Which gang are they from? Hakka? Guangdong? Chaozhou, Fujian, Hainan?

=We're not sure where their loyalties lie.
=And when I say "merchants," I'm talking about "bad merchants," Koko.

=I didn't see anything like that in Dubai.


<173>
=You will in Africa.
=Watch out for the Chinese merchants.

=They're called the Daxin Corporation.
=They operate under the guise of a trading firm.

GATHUCK
=I actually have to go!

<184>
=And if he's got the technique to try it in one fell swoop,

=You're just gonna cut off your own fingers.

GRIT

=Then sail southwards over to the Republic of South Africa.

=By the way, which room are Wilee and Jonah in?
=ZZ—T
=They're not answering.
