Tolan and the others confirm that Finley is dead and then gather the money and escape...

Episode Quotes
George: Do you, uh, do you think these people are likely to damage—damage my home?
Paris: They kill, Mr. Miller. They commit arson, they blow up things, they’re liable to do almost anything. But we’ll try to make sure they don’t.
George: Oh, thank you.
Paris: Thank you and your wife for being so cooperative.

Episode Goofs
When Jim blows the lock on the armored car company's gate, it's clear that the remains are wood, not metal.

Although Paris is posing as a married man, Tolan fails to notice that the fake driver's license that Paris has lists him as unmarried.

When Paris takes the phone call, he and the IMF agent are posing as George and Grace Miller. However, he says that "Lauren" isn't feeling too well.

Despite the fact that the IMF female agent is merely posing as Grace and presumably has a real name of her own, Jim refers to her as Grace when he thanks her for her help.
