They were sitting at their desks, each doing their own things when Rick suddenly spoke up from where he had been leaning to his computer, "I found her," he announced to the room. "Julie Raines. She lives in Maine, has triplets, a parrot, and likes playing snowshoe softball in the wintertime."
Michael grew curious, "What are you talking about, Martinez?"

I'm not allowed to elaborate, other than say that our-" he paused to think of a right word, "bumpy relationship is firmly sealed under the queen and country, not to mention a high-standing international company. But given the opportunity, I'd have happily taken a bullet for her."
