"You know, there were times I envied the spies. They never worked alone.
Rendezvouses, meetings, signals, betrayals... one big, happy family. Wanna
hear a joke? How do you catch a Communist? Hold a meeting. Not a joke,
actually, a real tactic. The FBI... a bunch of amateurs... but even they
know how to read a hotel registry or a passenger manifest. The best
blacklists are the ones the traitors sign all by themselves."
The writers were practically channeling JYA.
