English term or phrase: Official business.
Il s'agit d'un général qui parle avec un ancien soldat à lui à qui il demande de l'aide. Ce dernier est devenu une sorte de James Bond, Anglais, caustique, charmeur. "So we’re talking official business." lui dit-il. (le reste de sa réplique est "Bring in the US Army and your CIA friends. What do you need me for").
Merci d'avance!
