Recovered Audio Asset 04 - Yancy In-Line Tap APR 06 2045.01 (CT)
04 - A - INTERSTITIAL SCENE 1.
A PHONE RINGS AND IS ANSWERED.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: This is Christian Yancy.
AARAV PATEL: There's a man I want you speak to.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: Who is this?
AARAV PATEL: How do you have a working phone, by the way?
CHRISTIAN YANCY: How do you have a working phone?
AARAV PATEL: Our building is basically a Faraday cage.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: Sounds nice. I just used aluminum foil.
AARAV PATEL: And the phone lines?
CHRISTIAN YANCY: That part isn't quite legal. I'm tapping into your phone lines.
I'm assuming this is NASC calling? Mr. Patel?
AARAV PATEL: We're using international contact lines for emergencies and critical information.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: Yeah--and everything you use to monitor that phone line was wiped out by the flare. So here I am.
AARAV PATEL: Did you try to call CimmTech?
CHRISTIAN YANCY: Multiple times.
AARAV PATEL: And?
CHRISTIAN YANCY: Always went to voicemail. Voicemail was always full. You're right. No one is there.
Can I call you Aarav?
AARAV PATEL: No. I don't particularly like you.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: This call is going well.
AARAV PATEL: But there is someone that I want to talk to.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: So talk to them.
AARAV PATEL: They don't want to talk to me.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: Ah. 'The enemy of my enemy is my friend.'
AARAV PATEL: And I'm sure this man wants to talk to someone.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: Or is it 'the friend of my enemy is my enemy?'
AARAV PATEL: Murray.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: It's Christian.
AARAV PATEL: The man's name is Murray.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: What's his connection?
AARAV PATEL: He used to work for NASC.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: There's a lot of those people.
AARAV PATEL: Then he quit to work for CimmTech.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: (SUDDENLY UNDERSTAND) No shit.
AARAV PATEL: Then he quit CimmTech and went into hiding.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: No shit!
AARAV PATEL: He lives in the Dakotas. I'll text you his number, now that I know you have a working phone.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: I'll call as soon as we hang up.
AARAV PATEL: Let me ask you: What's stranger? The fact that no one picks up at CimmTech? Or the fact that they still have a working phone line?
CHRISTIAN YANCY: Aarav, I'm sorry I got under your skin at the press conference. I'm just looking for answers.
AARAV PATEL: Mr. Yancy...You didn't even remotely get under my skin. You gave me the opportunity to make a statement that Ms. Bryant wouldn't approve of and in a way that would make it seem...unintentional. If anything I should thank you.
CHRISTIAN YANCY: Wait--what are you saying?
AARAV PATEL: I'm saying there's a lot at stake. There's a lot of cards to be dealt. There's a lot hands left to play. Call Murray.
HANG UP AND DIAL TONE.
