Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)
Christopher Abbott: Fahim Ahmadzai
Kim Baker : What are we talking about, Fahim?
Fahim Ahmadzai : The human body produces its own heroin. In fact, when the fight-or-flight instinct is activated in the hypothalamu, your body releases endorphins, dopamine and norepinephrine. That is heroin, cocaine and amphetamine, all at once.
Kim Baker : Okay, great. Are we having the Afghan version of this conversation, where in New York we would have gotten to the point, like, five minutes ago?
Fahim Ahmadzai : There is a reason to believe that a person can get addicted to this type of high. Soldiers, athletes...
Kim Baker : War reporters. Got it.
Fahim Ahmadzai : An addict always needs a greater and greater dosage. And then people make mistakes, people get hurt.
Kim Baker : I get it. You're a newlywed. I can probably get them to go up to $125 a day.
Fahim Ahmadzai : Let us have the American version of this conversation.
Kim Baker : Okay.
Fahim Ahmadzai : I do not want to work with you anymore.
