Anatoly:
But why is he really here?
A whole year of silence,
And suddenly here he is.

Florence: [Spoken]
He’s working for Global. It’s big money.

Anatoly:
So that’s all it is, then?
He has no desire to see you anymore?

Florence:
Who cares what he’s up to?
You’re not playing him.

Anatoly:
Oh, no?
I’ve a feeling I am.
[Spoken]
Why is he here?

Florence:
Don’t talk yourself out of form
Viigand’s the one
You have to beat.

Anatoly:
And he’s a fine player.

Florence:
Predictable– he’s a machine.

Anatoly: [Spoken]
Yes, a very fine machine.

Florence:
So are you.
So are we.
But there is one other thing–

Anatoly: [Spoken]
What?

Florence:
I gather Svetlana
Is planning to come out here.

Anatoly: [Spoken]
My wife? Come to Bangkok? No.

Florence: [Spoken]
You must know about it.
[Sung]
It’s been in the papers–
They may let her out.

Anatoly:
This has to be Molokov,
Right up his street.

Florence:
So now you’ve got
One more opponent to beat.
Surely you knew.

Anatoly:
I did not.

Florence:
Well, this is a problem
We knew we’d be facing soon.

Anatoly: [Spoken]
But not now. Not now.
