The Terminal

161 Lexington.
OK, Mr. Navorski, I need to see
your return ticket, please.

No, your return ticket. Your...
- Oh... Yes.
- Ah.

This is just a standard procedure.
I'm going to need the passport also.
Oh... OK.
- No, no.
- Thank you.

Mr. Navorski.
That. Passport.
Mr. Navorski?
Sorry to keep you waiting.

I'm Frank Dixon, Director of Customs
and Border Protection here at JFK.

I help people
with their immigration problems.

We're looking for
an interpreter for you.

How are we doing on that?
Do we have an interpreter?

But I understand
that you speak a little English.

- Yes.
- You do?

I hope you don't mind if I eat
while we talk. I've a bit of bad news.

Your country has suspended
all traveling privileges

on passports issued
by your government.

And our State Department
has revoked the visa

that was going to allow you
to enter the US.

That's it in a nutshell, basically.
While you were in the air there
was a military coup in your country.

Most of the dead were members
of the Presidential Guard.

They were attacked
in the middle of the night.

They got it all on GHN, I think.
There were few civilian casualties.
I'm sure your family's fine.

Mr. Navorski, your country
was annexed from the inside.

The Republic of Krakozhia
is under new leadership.

Krakozhia. Krakozhia
- Krakozhia.
- Right. I don't think he gets it.

Er... Let me... OK. Look.
Imagine that these potato chips
are Krakozhia.
