    1. I think that was Mother Teresa
    2. I’ve never heard of a book with that title by Graham Greene. If you mean the work by John Le Carre it was George Smiley.
    3. Smile
    4. The last line was something like “If you smile” or “If you just smile”. I don’t remember the name of the song but given the theme of these questions it was probably something like “Smile”
