On a yacht somewhere
[Tess dives into water]
JIM: Can I have a light, man?
CULLEN: You mean to tell me you saw nothing?
JIM: Yes, sir. I mean, no sir. I mean, one minute she was there and then she wasn't.
MAN: Yeah, she just disappeared.
CULLEN: You were responsible for her. You were responsible.
JIM AND MAN: Yes, sir.
CULLEN: All right. All right.
CULLEN: I have no tolerance for fools.
On a beach
[inflatable approaches shore]
TESS: Hello, String.
ARCHANGEL: Hawke, wait a minute. Wait, hold it.
ARCHANGEL: Would you have come if I told you who you were going to pick up?
DOMINIC: Will someone tell me what's going on here? Who is this lady, anyway?
HAWKE: 6 years ago, I… I knew her as Tess Rogers.
TESS: It's Mrs. Dixon now.
DOMINIC: Mrs. Dixon. Mrs. Cullen Dixon?
TESS: He told you about us?
DOMINIC: No, I did some flying for your husband one time.
DOMINIC: I still haven't been paid.
HAWKE: Let me ask you something.
HAWKE: What is one of the richest men in America doing leting his wife gallivant around here to meet the country's number one spy?
TESS: Perhaps you should ask the spy.
ARCHANGEL: This is classified top secret. Even I don't have all the details.
HAWKE: Michael, quit tap-danceing, or Dom and I are gonna sit this one out.
ARCHANGEL: Okay, okay.
ARCHANGEL: A high-level Washington Investigative Committee has been formed to hear testimony from Mrs. Dixon. She's agreed to appear at a Hearing late this evening.
HAWKE: In exchange for what?
ARCHANGEL: I'm afraid that's privileged information.
ARCHANGEL: Hawke, they put a lid on this one. Not even the President is talking to me.
DOMINIC: So what can you tell us?
ARCHANGEL: Only that the mission calls for you to transport Mrs. Dixon to the Hearing by way of a computerized flight plan that'll deliver you to a classified location which will be transmitted in codeto Airwolf's On-board Flight Data System. That's all I…
DOMINIC: Hold it, hold it. Hold it right there. Are you saying that we'll be flying automatic-pilot under Firm's control?
DOMINIC: No way, I don't like it, String. We get in trouble, we'll be hanging out there in our shorts.
HAWKE: Who's to say it isn't some scheme cooked up by the Firm to regain control of Airwolf?
ARCHANGEL: All you've got is my word. And the fact that I do know that this lady's life is in great danger, Hawke.
VIVIAN: Clothes you requested.
TESS: Thank you.
On board Airwolf
[Airwolf starts up]
DOMINIC: All systems green.
DOMINIC: Turbo's on the line, String.
On board Cullen's yacht
BUSINESSMAN 1: She can destroy years of work and planning.
BUSINESSMAN 2: She may have already done so.
KASE: I have been assured she hasn't revealed any of our identities yet.
BUSINESSMAN 1 or BUSINESSMAN2: You don't know that.
KASE: I know she's running scared. And I know she doesn't know who to trust.
BUSINESSMAN 1: If she's allowed to testify before the Committee, none of us will ever see the outside of a prison again.
BUSINESSMAN 2: With what she's got on us, they could hang us all with the same rope.
CULLEN: Well gentlemen, you all know me as an ingenuous man, so I'll be perfectly candid.
CULLEN: What I am here, is a man caught in the middle.
CULLEN: God knows how crazy I am about her.
CULLEN: I've seen the way you all looked at her and the way every man looks at her.
CULLEN: You all wanted her.
KASE: But not in the way you wanted her. You wanted her the way you want everything. You had to possess it.
KASE: But there's a lot more at stake here than one more of your possessions.
CULLEN: My ambitions have served me well, Mr. Kase.
KASE: To be sure.
CULLEN: You take pride in not being hypocritical Barkley, so don't be sanctimonious.
CULLEN: You wanna talk about greed, let's be truthful and admit that that's why we're all here.
BUSINESSMAN 1: This conversation has become convoluted to the main issue.
BUSINESSMAN 2: We should be talking about our survival.
CULLEN: Gentlemen, to be honest, I'd do anything, anything to have her back again.
CULLEN: But I am sane enough to realize that she can do us all irreparable harm.
CULLEN: As much as I despise it, I see no other recourse but to stop her.
KASE: What I'm hearing here is a commitment to do whatever is necessary to silence her. Is that what you're saying?
CULLEN: Yes, I'm saying do what's necessary. Whatever's necessary.
On board Airwolf
HAWKE: You know, I asked you before to put these on.
TESS: No, you told me.
HAWKE: You're not used to being told.
TESS: Just the opposite.
HAWKE: Look, put 'em on. We've gotta have clear communications, please.
DOMINIC: There now, isn't that better?
DOMINIC: Now, what’ll we talk about?
HAWKE: How about what our position is and where we're going?
DOMINIC: Well, we just cut inland from the Gulf of Mexico. And according to the azimuth and range resolution, we should be crossing Baja and entering Southern California in about 5 minutes.
DOMINIC: And I'll say it again String, I don't like this. I just don't like it one bit.
HAWKE: Well, maybe you oughta call up Michael and tell him again.
DOMINIC: I would if I thought it would do any good.
DOMINIC: Uh-oh. We got company.
DOMINIC: 2 HX-10 gunships on a closing course.
HAWKE: Time to intercept?
DOMINIC: 2 minutes 20 seconds.
DOMINIC: Either they're mighty serious or they're a flying advertisement for “Missiles R Us.”
DOMINIC: Uh-huh, they're serious.
DOMINIC: And they're sending us a sample, air express.
HAWKE: Give me a copper-head.
DOMINIC: By the numbers.
DOMINIC: Evade, evade.
[missile explodes in desert]
[another missile launches. Misses and explodes]
DOMINIC: Who the hell are these guys, anyway?
HAWKE: Your guess is as good as mine.
[Airwolf launches missile]
DOMINIC: All right, all right, attaboy String.
[machine guns fire]
HAWKE: You know, this cloak and dagger stuff has gone far enough.
HAWKE: Dom and my's butts are on the line out there.
DOMINIC: Yeah, lady. And I'd kind of hate to lose mine on account of we were up here flying blind.
HAWKE: I wanna know what's going on and I wanna know now.
TESS: I guess I owe you both that much.
HAWKE: You owe me a hell of a lot more than that.
HAWKE: This'll do for a start.
TESS: I'm sure they were after me.
DOMINIC: Looks like they want you pretty bad.
TESS: I… I can name names.
TESS: Because I… I know about a conspiracy to assassinate key international Heads of State.
TESS: Including some of the highest-ranking officials in Washington.
ARCHANGEL: A hit squad.
HAWKE: (on radio) You seem kinda surprised, Michael.
ARCHANGEL: I'm stunned. Particularly by the fact that they knew where to try to make a hit on Airwolf.
HAWKE: Well, we've been flying under your computerized machine guidance system. If this is supposed to be such a top-secret caper, Michael, why don't you go talk to some of your people in the Firm?
ARCHANGEL: That is precisely what I'm going to do.
HAWKE: Yeah well, meanwhile, we'll be flying on our own flight plan.
HAWKE: You call us when you find this leak. Talk to you later.
ARCHANGEL: All our radio communications are being scrambled.
VIVIAN: And GCS is also encoding all command signals to Airwolf's Flight Director via satellite transmissions.
ARCHANGEL: Then we'll start with our Ground Control Station and talk to the Flight Controller.
ARCHANGEL: Call Security and have them meet me there. And then pull all the personnel files on the GCS section.
On board Cullen's yacht
KASE: We may have underestimated the capabilities of this machine they call Airwolf.
CULLEN: From the after-action report, I'd say you overestimated yours, Barkley.
KASE: At this very moment, their position is being transmitted to a 2nd fighter group.
CULLEN: Do you have any ambivalence connected with this, Barkley?
KASE: I have no illusions about my part in this. I'm fully aware of my involvement.
CULLEN: Your integrity will probably kill you someday.
CULLEN: And Tess, how do you feel about her?
KASE: God, I wish there were some other way.
CULLEN: Yes, I'm sure.
CULLEN: I understand you 2 were quite friendly.
KASE: We talked. I was one of the few allowed that privilege.
CULLEN: That's my mistake.
KASE: There was never anything but talk between us.
CULLEN: Right. There was nothing more than talk between her and the Arab.
CULLEN: He's responsible for what's happened right now.
CULLEN: And I hold you responsible for introducing them, Barkley.
KASE: You got this whole thing twisted around.
CULLEN: Have I?
KASE: It was you who drove them together!
CULLEN: It was him who tore us apart, Kase.
KASE: If you'll excuse me, I've got to see about picking up some pieces.
P/ I never saw you miss before, sir.
On board Airwolf
DOMINIC: Hey, you're not headed where I think you are, are you?
HAWKE: Can you think of a better place?
DOMINIC: What about her? I mean, takeing her in where the Lady sleeps?
HAWKE: We'll just have to blindfold her going in and comeing out.
TESS: What are you talking about?
HAWKE: About a nice, safe place for us to set down. While we get a few things ironed out.
TESS: No. No, no way.
HAWKE: Listen, I'm very sorry, but right now I don't think you have any other choice.
TESS: I should have known.
TESS: I should have known something like this was gonna happen.
TESS: I knew it. I can't trust anybody. I want out of this. Set this thing down now. I want outta here!
DOMINIC: There's nothing to be afraid of.
TESS: Right, like those planes.
TESS: Those planes, those damn planes.
HAWKE: You think we had something to do with them?
TESS: How do I know? How do I know this whole thing isn't just a set-up? How do I know?
DOMINIC: Now, you gotta be kiding, lady.
TESS: Look, how do I know it's not a set-up to get me to talk before I can testify?
TESS: Look, you said yourself there might be a traitor inside the Firm. Well, how do I know it isn't you?
HAWKE: We just dusted 2 planes. If all we wanted from you was information, we'd just hold a gun to your head.
ARCHANGEL: Hawke, this is Ground Control, come in.
ARCHANGEL: Hawke, this is Michael, come in.
HAWKE: Go ahead, Michael.
ARCHANGEL: We have sufficient evidence to believe we have our man in custody.
HAWKE: Why is it then, Michael, that I hear such reservations in your voice?
ARCHANGEL: Well, you know me Hawke, the eternal spy. I never believe anything until I see it in black and white.
HAWKE: Yeah, but you're asking us to.
ARCHANGEL: Hawke, I just got off the phone with the White House.
ARCHANGEL: This thing has much bigger implications than I thought. You're just gonna have to trust me on this one.
HAWKE: All right, Michael. We'll try it one more time.
HAWKE: Dom, put us back on remote.
HAWKE: But if you can't get us to the rendezvous point, we'll just do it on our own.
ARCHANGEL: Fair enough.
HAWKE: Okay Michael, she's all yours.
FIRM Ground control
PETERS: You're making a big mistake.
VIVIAN: Look at the facts. You were the Flight Control Officer on duty. You're having financial difficulties.
PETERS: I've got 2 ex-wives. You show me a guy with 2 ex-wives who's not having financial difficulties.
VIVIAN: So how does $50,000 suddenly show up in your personal checking account 2 days after you were given this assignment?
PETERS: I told you, I don't know anything about that money. Now, this whole thing is a set-up.
VIVIAN: No one else inside the Firm had access to the flight plan, including Archangel.
PETERS: But it was transmitted directly to GCS from the Committee Headquarters on a 2-way data link system with only a 15-second lead-time.
PETERS: Now you tell me how I could have relayed that information out of here, huh?
ARCHANGEL: I have to admit we'll need more time to corroborate.
On board Airwolf
HAWKE: They still got Flight Control. How's the Lady doing?
DOMINIC: Under the circumstances String, she's okay.
HAWKE: Keep your eye on her, okay?
HAWKE: Pretty scared, aren't you?
HAWKE: How come Cullen Dixon?
TESS: You know me, String. I was raised on Hollywood movies.
HAWKE: Hollywood yearnings.
TESS: I wanted to be Grace Kelly.
TESS: But instead of ending up a princess, I ended up a prisoner.
HAWKE: And the dream became a nightmare.
DOMINIC: Bearing 340 - 2 F-16 fighters closing at Mach 1.7.
HAWKE: Take it off of auto, Dom.
DOMINIC: Combat mode.
DOMINIC: Negative function on the automatic pilot disengage.
DOMINIC: The Ground Control must be overriding.
[missile near miss]
TESS: Oh, we've been hit.
DOMINIC: They nearly stuck the rocket up my tailpipe.
HAWKE: Give me guns. ADF pod.
DOMINIC: They won't deploy.
[Another missile near miss]
HAWKE: Dom, I can't hold her. She's loseing altitude fast.
DOMINIC: Airwolf to Ground Control. Mayday, mayday!
DOMINIC: We're going down. Mayday!
HAWKE: There's nothing here, Dom. I can't even muscle it.
HAWKE: It'll tear her apart.
DOMINIC: Mayday, mayday!
DOMINIC: I've managed to champ Ground Control's override.
HAWKE: Missiles Dom, gimme all you've got.
GROUND CONTROL: Red flight leader, this is Ground Control. We're still picking up a homing signal from the aircraft.Can you confirm the kill?
PILOT: Roger. There's a hole in the ground deep enough, it should be pumping oil.
PILOT: Hold it. I'm getting… Incoming!
[Explosion. Then another.]
On board Cullen's yacht
CULLEN: You mean to tell me you just lost 2 jet fighters?
CULLEN: I suggest, Mr. Kase, you think of activating your ground forces.
Airwolf on the ground
DOMINIC: Nice shooting, String.
HAWKE: That's one hell of a way to spend $50,000.
DOMINIC: And you can double that. Those 2 Stingers you used on those jets.
DOMINIC: Not to mention the fact of fireing off half of our armament just to make a great, big smoking hole in the ground.
DOMINIC: But I gotta admit, it was pretty slick. Pretty slick.
HAWKE: Well, thank you. So how we doing here?
DOMINIC: Well, most of the electricals’ fried which means the radio's out, of course. And this engine has a cracked turbo section.
DOMINIC: I can probably jury-rig the wiring to get us back up into the air. But she'll be limping.
DOMINIC: I was already on my second Hail Mary.So I know she was aboutready to give up the ghost.
DOMINIC: Hey, if I'm outta line, tell me, will ya?But what the hell is it between you 2?
HAWKE: We were in love or at least I was.
HAWKE: She was pregnant with my baby. Didn't want it.
HAWKE: I guess we were just too young.
HAWKE: Tess? I thought maybe you'd like to freshen up a little.
TESS: Look. I'm sorry.
HAWKE: For what?
HAWKE: For doubting you. For thinking you could ever be like them. I know you're not.
On Cullen's yacht
BUSINESSMAN 2: You know, it just may be that you do not realize what the stakes are here, Barkley.
BUSINESSMAN 1: We're running out of time, man.
CULLEN: Perhaps Mr. Kase isn't capable of carrying out his role.
KASE: The only thing I fail to do is to anticipate the abilities of the crew and the capabilities of Airwolf.
CULLEN: You have another plan.
KASE: Now that Airwolf is disabled and down, it's most vulnerable to a ground attack.
CULLEN: And if this one fails also?
KASE: I have a backup plan.
CULLEN: Which is…
KASE: An insurance policy against failure. Code name: “Blue Star.”
CULLEN: “Blue Star?” “Blue Star,” isn't that lovely?
KASE: It's appropriate.
CULLEN: Well, I trust this falls short of us all committing suicide, Mr. Kase.
KASE: I'll see to “Blue Star” personally.
Airwolf on the ground
DOMINIC: Now we've bypassed the capacitor and the circuit breaker. And now we'll go red wire to red wire.
HAWKE: That's gonna work?
DOMINIC: Like putting a penny in a fuse box, baby. We'll find out.
[more machine gun fire]
[bikers fire small arms]
HAWKE: Dom, we need some help.
DOMINIC: On my way, buddy.
[Airwolf lifts off]
[Airwolf fires machine guns at bikers]
[Tess exclaims, runs off]
[helicopter fires at Airwolf]
Pursuit the road
[pick up approaches]
MAN: What are you doing?
DRIVER: Look at that radar blip, man. She's heading for the main road.
[pick up drives off]
[biker charges at Hawke]
[Hawke fires and hits]
[Hawke starts bike]
HAWKE: Chew him up and spit him out, Dom.
TRUCK DRIVER: Well, it looks like this is my lucky day.
[men on pickup shoot at truck]
TRUCK DRIVER: What the hell do they want?
TESS: They're after me.
TRUCK DRIVER: Hang on.
[men on pickup fire guns]
[Airwolf fires missile]
HAWKE: Hang on.
[Airwolf fires missile]
TESS: Oh. Oh, God.
TESS: Oh, no. Oh, please God, no. Don't let me lose this one, too. Oh.
On the road
HAWKE: Come on, Tess. Why the hell didn't you tell me about this?
TESS: You know why.
HAWKE: That was a long time ago. What's over is over.
TESS: Is it, Hawke?
TESS: Is it?
DOMINIC: Uh, listen, I'll stand by on radio, huh?
TESS: Hawke, you never have forgiven me, have you?
HAWKE: I loved you, Tess. I really wanted our baby.
TESS: I know you did. But we were so young. I wanted so much.
HAWKE: You want this one though, don't you?
TESS: Very much.
HAWKE: What about your husband?
TESS: It isn't Cullen's baby.
TESS: I told you. He made a prisoner of me. He isn't happy unless he can encompass everything and everybody around him.
HAWKE: You've never been stupid enough to let anybody do that to you.
TESS: Well, I was stupid enough to have an affair.
HAWKE: Maybe you were just looking for a way out.
TESS: He was a… a visiting dignitary from an Arab state.
TESS: He was a Prince.
HAWKE: Kind of like your fairytale.
TESS: But it only lasted long enough for him to tell me that East and West could never really meet.
TESS: But I know one thing. I want this baby more than I've ever wanted anything in my whole life.
TESS: And this might be my only chance.
HAWKE: What do you mean?
TESS: Because I… chose to terminate our baby, the doctors told me that I might never be able to have another one.
HAWKE: Tess, I promise. I promise you. You're gonna have this baby.
On board Airwolf
ARCHANGEL: (on radio) Hawke, what do you mean you had a little trouble?
HAWKE: Yeah, I'll explain when I see you.
HAWKE: Meanwhile, we'll be flying to the Committee Hearing on our own.
ARCHANGEL: Roger that. Just get her to the meeting before anything else goes wrong. We'll meet you there. Angel One out.
Telephone conversation between Cullen and Kase
CULLEN: Well Barkley, this has been very interesting. But you do realize, of course, if your plan fails, the next meeting we'll be holding, will be in Hell.
KASE: I assure you Cullen, it will not fail.
On board Airwolf
DOMINIC: So after their hit squad knocks off these Heads of State, then what?
TESS: The leadership vacuum will spawn a monetary crisis. After which they plan to step in and take control of the Internationa Banking Committee.
HAWKE: That'll give them regulatory power over world currency.
Washington D. C.
ARCHANGEL: The Committee's waiting. I trust you're ready to testify, Mrs. Dixon.
HAWKE: You're damn right she's ready.
[Hawke fires a shot]
FIRM ASSAULT TEAM MAN: Hold it. Pick up that gun.
ARCHANGEL: Nobody move.
DOMINIC: Easy. Easy, boys. Easy.
DOMINIC: Easy, easy…
HAWKE: There's your traitor.
ALVES: Will you please take the witness stand, Mrs. Dixon?
ALVES: Raise your right hand. Now, do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
ALVES: Mrs. Dixon?
ALVES: Mrs. Dixon?
TESS: Yes, I do.
ARCHANGEL: How did you know?
HAWKE: Dom uncovered this listening device.
HAWKE: It was tuned into the same one your girl wore.
DOMINIC: You know, I picked it up on radar. That's how they were able to track us.
ARCHANGEL: So Vivian planted it in the clothes she gave to Mrs. Dixon.
HAWKE: What about your girl? Ever find out why she turned over?
ARCHANGEL: Yeah, something new… money. That and an excuse about her disenchantment with the way the Firm's been handling world affairs.
ARCHANGEL: How'd your lady do?
HAWKE: She's still at it. She'll probably be testifying until morning.
DOMINIC: What about her husband, Cullen Dixon?
ARCHANGEL: The Mexican Federales took his yacht down for us. They've got everybody in custody.
ARCHANGEL: Well… Guess I owe you both on this one.
HAWKE: Yeah, you do.
HAWKE: You take care of Tess, and we'll be even.
ARCHANGEL: I will.
DOMINIC: Yeah, you better. ‘Cause she promised to name the baby Stringfellow if it's a boy or Dominique if it's a girl.
ARCHANGEL: Poor kid'll never have a chance.
ARCHANGEL: Looks like I'm driving.
DOMINIC: Oh, allow me.
