Korami, a hostile Middle East nation constructs a probe, using information stolen from the Soviet Union about the metal alloy, that is then unleashed on the United States as part of a plan to extort from the U.S. Steve and Oscar are introduced to the probe, the sound of which Steve recognizes before it comes around a hillside.



Oscar: What do you think you're going to get, a short term in the federal penitentiary? Let me tell you something, you have stolen defense secrets. By the time you get out of there you won't be good for anything but a rocking chair and a cane.

Arnold: Any decision what course of action we're going to take?
Oscar: Mahmoud is King Faoud's cousin.
Arnold: We don't give in to terrorists.
Oscar: Arnold, I assume that I have autonomy to free the ambassador once we receive instructions from the kidnappers.
Arnold: Autonomy, prayers, best wishes. You name it, you've got it Oscar.

Steve: Alright. What do you really want?
Mahmoud: Two nuclear warheads.
Oscar: You must be out of your mind!
