Soldier 1: (comes in with Arthur, and salutes Col Brutnikoff handing him a report about Arthur and his whereabouts etc….) We found him trying to sneak into one of the consulates on Leninsky Cr. Luckily we found him just in time. He didn't resist, but he is completely against our Supreme Soviet system.

Arthur sits down without any permission

Arthur: (sarcastically) nothing personal
CK: get up and face Col. Brutnikoff

Arthur stands up and faces C.B.

CB: I don't care where you are from, all I want to know is, who are you?
Arthur: My name is Arthur Ardzruny, according to your laws. But my actual name is Arthur Birmingham according to my ORIGINAL birth certificate.
CB: Did you kill anyone?
Arthur: No. I came to see the consulate
CB: Could you explain to us, how come you don't carry any documents? Where is your Komsomol card or your passport?
Arthur: I don't have any of them. I never became a Pioneer or a Komsomol or have a passport for that matter.
CK: Tell us the name of the school you're supposed to be in.
Arthur: Tellman Secondary School. I have all the phone numbers; I can give them to you to verify my story.
CK: No we'll come to that later.

Soldiers give a notebook full of phone numbers to Col. Brutnikoff, and then take Arthur to his cell.
Walking down the corridors:
Arthur: (thinking to himself) these soldiers make enough noise to wake the dead.

2 hours later. Soldiers bring Arthur back to the interrogation room.

CB: We have checked all the phone numbers in you little book here… nobody seems to know you.
Arthur: How could you check my phone book, if all the names were written in another language?
CB: Don't get smart with me.
Arthur: How can I get smart if you couldn't check on me? And no one knows me?
CK: You are not only a murderer, but also a bad liar. A very bad liar.
Arthur: I haven't lied about anything, and I'm not a murderer. I'm sure the KGB knows the difference between a criminal and an ordinary...
