The pool player wants to stay in and practice and Dutch agrees. Once Dutch and Press go outside, they send two of their men on in their car. Meanwhile, Toledo goes to the window and assumes that the partners are driving away. He goes up to Dutch's office and breaks into the drawer where the crime lord keeps his files. Using a camera hidden in his wristwatch, Toledo takes photos of the ledger and puts it away... just as Dutch and Press come in.

Mimi: Thanks for caring, Jim. But I care, too. And I want to see Krebbs and Press Allen put away for good.
