Christopher and Winston go to an outdoor café, their latest stop in a series of places that their new client has sent them to make sure that they’re not followed. Winston figures that their client, who hasn’t given his name, is a nutjob, but Christopher figures the man is desperate. As they wait, a man pulls into the parking lot, agues with a female driver, and then backs into another car. His car explodes and Christopher and Winston run to help. They manage to get the man out before the gas tank goes up, and they figure the man is their client..

Episode Quotes
Ilsa: My attorney has informed me that I’ve adopted an adult white male. When I’d laughed it off, he showed me some documentation—signed, by me.

Guerrero: I only get paid in cash. I've never taken a check in my entire life. Look, men in my vocation can't afford being burnt by a paper trail. Do you know what this is? It's a license to steal. It's a map for thieves. Get your account number, they find your social. They find your social, they got you.
Ilsa: Who are they, exactly?
Guerrero: Well, uh.. me... and men of my ilk.
Ilsa: Well , as I've explained to your colleagues, I'm running a legitimate business here. So take your check, deposit it in a secure banking facility, report it to the Federal government, and... wait for it... pay taxes on it.
Guerrero: Taxes?
Ilsa: Taxes.

Winston: Four of them, two of us.
Christopher: They won't know what hit 'em.

Cultural References
