When I was a kid, I had a system to get into rock concerts, usually back stage without a ticket. I wore coveralls, a small tool pouch and a "butt phone" - which is the instrument used by telephone repair and installation people. It's funny because if I was planting wire taps (I wasn't) I would look the same.

The contrast between her looking like an adorable grandmother and then her telling a story of the suicide of an agent that was about to be tortured without even a flinch is just so shocking. She's probably more lethal than all the characters she reviewed in these clips.
