When we first see Chechik the insert says "Chechik / уступки (Hardass)". That is wrong. An уступки (pron. ustupki) is someone who makes concessions.
Becks: You know, I got 25 people on my payroll. I got-I got people who report to people who report to people. And here I am, alone in the middle of nowhere, about to die from a damn leg wound!
Michael: Well, you're not alone.
Becks: The hell I'm not. What, you gonna stick around and watch me die?
Michael: (smirks) No. We're gonna get through this together.
Michael: (voice-over) Meeting a new operative is a lot like going on a blind date. You're bound to be nervous the first couple of times you do it. But live through a few, and you get to be an expert. You should arrive early, prepare an exit strategy, and know you could be in for an ugly surprise.
Tom Strickler: So Michael, you like the yogurt?
Michael: No, I haven't tried it yet. I was always taught "never take yogurt from strangers".
Madeline: No one else gave me a house rewarming present, not even the guy who blew up my house.
Sam: Maddy, I thought we were over that.
Madeline: Forgiveness is a process. Pick me up some curtain rods, and maybe.
Sam: Fine, curtain rods. You got it.
Michael: (voice-over) The cold approach is something you try to avoid in intelligence work. You want to ease into a relationship over time. When that's impossible, you just have to turn on the charm and hope for the best.
Michael: (voice-over) After the adrenaline rush of an operation comes a crash. Heightened reflexes and awareness don't last. Two boring hours of driving later, even the sharpest killing machine lets down his guard.
Michael: (voice-over) When on the run, subtle things like broken branches, flattened grass and disturbed ground can give you away to an expert tracker. An inexperienced tracker may require a more obvious trail.
Sam: Oh, great. A drunk with a gun. This calls for subtlety.
Fiona: I can do subtle. (Sam looks at her) I don't like to, but I can.
Michael: Give me your shoelaces.
Beck: Look, I may not be Rambo, okay, but if you're making a trap...
Michael: It doesn't have to work. They'll see it. They'll figure we're close. They'll fan out, and we'll injure one of them.
Beck: We're injuring one of them?
Michael: It'll slow them down. If I have to drag a complaining pain in the ass through the woods, they can, too.
Michael: (voice-over) Military units are a lot like marching bands. Take out the guy conducting the operation, and you'll throw everone out of sync. Pretty soon, all you have left is sound and fury.
Sam: That guy is more afraid of Chechik than he is of us. We're gonna have to squeeze him harder.
Fiona: If by squeeze you mean choke...
Sam: He can't talk if he can't breathe, Fi.
Fiona: He can whisper. I have good hearing.
Sam: You push him too hard, he's gonna snap, okay? And then he's just gonna start making crap up.
Fiona: Oh, Sam Axe wisdom.
Michael: (voice-over) When fighting in the wilderness, the biggest threats are often the ones you don't see-- dehydration, exhaustion and nerves. But boatloads of hostiles don't help either.
Michael: (voice-over) Delaying tactics aren't the most glamorous part of a battle plan, but they're often the most important. Slowing the enemy down buys you time to prepare the ground ahead of him, and that, more than almost anything else, wins battles.
Michael: (voice-over) For a spy, there's no shame in retreat. When faced with a more powerful enemy, you're trained to get out of the way and keep moving. It's not about running away or giving up. The goal of any retreat is to find the right place to marshal your resources and make a stand.
Michael: (voice-over) Military history is filled with stories of small forces taking on larger ones. Whether it's David fighting Goliath or the French Resistance fighting the Nazis, the strategy is basically the same -- you have to choose the right ground, deploy your resources carefully, and remember that the greatest weapon in any battle is surprise.
Madeline: (to Michael) I'm beginning to think I should get you one of those harness things. You know, like they have for toddlers. You've been wandering off a little too much these days.
Jeremiah Chechick is a director who has directed a few Burn Notice episodes, naming the bad guy "Chechick" is a nod to him.
