Tom, we need you. The Valkyrie
thing? You took it to the Germans.
Now it’s this French thing. They
need your teeth of truth.
They need us to spring
them from their trap, so here’s
the deal. Napoleon. In French.
You need to speak to them.
In their own archaic language.
It’s a big effort, amigo, but you can do it.
You’ve got the universe in your pocket,
Tom. Tutors are on their way.
France is a beautiful playground, Tommy.
The future begins now!
