You need to be strong for when they savagely torture you.
Natasha is the secret codename for Amy in the 1950's, who is a Russian spy. Although she seems like the epitomic American mom, Natasha speaks with a thick Russian accent. She asks Cory if he asks "the papers." Also, she addresses Cory as "boobula" and gives him a muffin for strength for when he is savagely tortured, either by the Americans or the Russians.
