Michael negotiates with Anwar

"Wanted Man". Michael offers to trade favors with a Libyan spy: he offers to tell them who blew up a gas depot a few years ago in exchange for them messing with the man who signed off on his burn notice. Anwar suggests he could just torture Michael, who replies, "You could do that. The information might or might not check out -- torture is unreliable, as you know -- and then you'd have to deal with Fiona, who put me in touch with you. More trouble than it's worth, trust me."

How well does it match the trope?
