Jack goes on to say (THONGS!) that Basarov is scheduled to receive a transmission within 48 hours (THONGS!) that will inform him of where and when the sale of his device will take place. It's assumed that he'll receive this transmission (THONGS!) via his laptop at the conference. Marshall says that they just have to get access to the laptop, upload the bugging software, and they're in like Flynn. Piece of cake. He can do it no problem. Jack glares down at him (THONGS!) and says that Marshall needs to stay behind to decrypt the transmission. Jack's expression: There is NO WAY I am sending you down there with the THONGS and the TOPLESS BEACHES. Marshall's expression: Is this because I asked about the THONGS? Jack assigns Rachel to the Brazil job, and the meeting adjourns.
Later on, Rachel's getting ready to head out. Syd walks up and hands her the bugging program. She asks if Rachel's okay with the assignment, and Rachel says she is and that she's glad she's going; anything to keep the investigation moving. "When's the last time you did something just for fun?" asks Syd. Hello, Kettle? This is Pot. You're black. "Hitting Gordon Dean on the head with a shovel," says Rachel, "THAT was fun." Heh. Syd says she has to have a life. Dear Kettle: Again, you're black. Love, Pot. Rachel says that she'll work on the whole "get a life" thing after she gets back from Brazil.
And so we head off to São Paulo, the land of tangos, men with gold chains, and THONGS. Rachel enters the hotel and checks in. She's using a sporadic British accent as her cover, although I'm not really sure why. No one knows her at this convention, so it's not like her own accent wouldn't work. Speaking of accents, David Anders is using his own American one and he's loudly bitching at the hotel clerk about the "geek convention" that's in town and how he doesn't give a damn, he still wants the upgrade he was promised. Again, not really sure why he's pretending to be an American as his disguise, seeing as he's not even bothering to change his appearance at all and he IS one of the most wanted men in the world.
