Reese goes to an address and Finch tells him that they have a repeat number. Leon comes flying out of a window and greets Reese, and two men come out. Reese asks them to let it slide but the men keep coming, and Leon explains that he's been running online game gold-farming and the Russian mob is involved. After he takes out the mobsters, Reese takes Leon to the library. The accountant realizes that Finch is the boss and they explain that they have another Number to deal with. Since the Mob is still after Leon, they tell him to stay there while they deal with it, and warn him that Bear will kill him if he touches the computer. As they go, Finch tells Reese that they're heading for a hospital...

Reese: Eh, Finch? Are you gonna be okay here?
Finch: Even if I had a phobia, Mr. Reese, now would not be the time for it.

Finch: Ah--that was fast.
Leon Tao: Me and Bear--one hell of a team. Even with one arm, I'm still the fastest gun in the West.
Finch: Yes, yes, back pats all around. What have you found out?

Finch: Sorry for the theatrics, Mr. Tao, but we couldn't have you turning up knocking on our door.
