  • We learn that Brody can speak Russian while LaSalle can't. She learnt this via "Rosetta Stone", an online TV programme


Dr. Timofey Yeltin: No talk! No talk! America, rights, da?

LaSalle: Well, what about the rights of that girl you murdered?

Yeltin: (in Russian) I don't understand. Stupid Police!

Brody: NOPD's on the way.

LaSalle: You tell 'em to bring a translator? 'Cause I can't understand a word Baryshnikov here is saying.

Brody: (in Russian) Why murder the girl?

Yeltin: (in Russian) I didn't murder anyone

Brody: (to LaSalle): Rosetta Stone. I was gonna take a semester in Moscow, but it's too cold.

Brody (to Yeltin in Russian) tell us what's going on here?

Yeltin: (in English) Why I should talk to you?

LaSalle: Because you're facing the death penalty if you don't. How do you say "lethal injection"?

Brody: Uh, Rosetta Stone doesn't really cover stuff like that. (in Russian to Yeltin) The girl...Talk about the girl.

Yeltin: (in Russian) I perform surgery. (In English) I-I cut.Uh girl was, uh How do you say? Uh, donkey.
