The scene opens with Neal and Burke walking down the street and Neal is excited that they are going to go to Mortebello’s. Thinking that he is going to eat there, Neal starts telling that each plate is a work of art. Burke breaks the news that they are only going to be meeting someone. Neal finds out that it is a woman of his past. Sara Ellis, and insurance investigator, meets them and tells that $100,000 in Japanese bonds has been stolen and they believe that a Edward Halbridge is involved. She is distracted by an Emilio and she tells that he could do what he wants with the VIN numbers but it is still a Mercedes SLR and that is not allowed for him. He attempts to reach for something and Sara pulls out a baton and hits him with it. She tells that he can file a complaint with her friends the FBI. She gets in the car and Neal stops her. He calls her a white collar bounty hunter and she gives him her business card in case he wants to turn anything in. He tells her not to wait by the phone. It is clear that Neal is not happy to have Sara in his life again. ..
