A girl tells her friend Anna to go over and hit on Chance, who is drinking at a bar. She does so and tries to guess what he does for a living. They’re interrupted when Chance’s old friend Maria Gallego comes over, and Chance apologizes to Anna, who angrily stalks off. Maria and Chance exchange barbs, and Maria is surprised to learn that Chance now has a boss. She wonders if he’s free to do what he pleases, and he asks what she has in mind. Maria says she wants to tell him in private...

Episode Quotes
Ilsa: Mr. Guerrero, I'm rather stunned that you're here.
Guerrero: I'm not reading anything, I'm not signing anything. If this meeting takes more than five minutes, you and I got an issue. I got someone waiting in the car. In the trunk.

Christopher: Did you come here to see me or because you're in trouble?
Maria Gallego: Because I'm in trouble. I always want to see you.

Maria Gallego: How come your name is Guerrero and you don't speak Spanish?
Guerrero: None of your business. I don't talk about my private life. Ever.
Maria Gallego: I didn't realize your name was so private.

Christopher: Listen, I know you warned me.
Guerrero: We all have our blind spots, bro. There's this girl in Osaka. Enough said.

Guerrero: All right, I'll stay here and reach out to the Lopez brothers. Propose the trade.
Christopher: You sure?
Guerrero: Yeah, I got a history with them. And I'm comfortable in the world of violently insane.

Winston: Promise me one thing. If this is it, if this is really the end... I get to use the rocket launcher.

Guerrero: Chance will think of something.
Diego Garcia: Well, I hope he's very clever.
Guerrero: More importantly, he's very crazy.

Maria Gallego: I need you to know this just in case things don't go according to plan.
Christopher: Don't worry. Things never go according to plan.

Winston: What did you do?
Christopher: We don't have enough oxygen to go back to San Francisco.
Winston: Are you crazy or something?!
Christopher: I've been hearing that.
Winston: You know, just between us, you ought to admit one thing. Things have gotten a little out of hand.
Christopher: Yeah.

Maria Gallego: I'm going to miss you, Chance.
Christopher: Could've told you that.
