Embassy Escape

Bourne, outside the embassy

In the The Bourne Identity, Bourne heads to the Gemenscheift bank, where he finds a safety deposit box with money, passports, and a gun. As he leaves the bank, he is recognized by the Zurich police, but he manages to find refuge in the U.S. Consolate. However, moments later, a consular official moves to detain him, either after talking to the CIA or the Zurich police. Bourne fights off the official and escapes the Marines stationed at the consulate. He eventually escapes using a fire escape and scaling down the walls. He pays a woman he saw in the consulate, Marie Kreutz, $10,000 to drive him to Paris.
