Ethan Hunt: I thought I was going to see Max. Matthias: You misunderstood. No one sees Max. Ethan Hunt: Then what am I doing here? Matthias: Allowing Max to see you, and hear what you've got to say. Ethan Hunt: I don't communicate very well through a shroud. Matthias: If Max doesn't like what you have to say, you will be wearing that shroud... indefinitely.
