As Michael and Victor get out of the car in a darkened warehouse, they're arguing after the fact about Michael's tactics. "A little harmless gunfire attracts less attention than a double homicide," Michael points out. Hurling the crate into the van that Michael's parked next to (so clearly the item is really not fragile at all),Victor gets into Michael's face and spits, "I warned you what would happen if you pulled another stunt." Actually, he didn't, specifically. But just when it looks like we're about to find out, Victor says, "But that one had style!" and totally cracks up, reenacting how awesome it was and giggling so madly that even Michael can't suppress a little smile. "Bet you're dying for a peek inside, huh?" Victor finally taunts. Michael acts sanguine: "Nope. You know what you're meant to know." Victor's too flush with success to be suspicious of Michael's sudden lack of curiosity, and drives off in the van with a jaunty "See you around."
From there, Michael changes into a pink polo shirt and goes straight to Madeline's for dinner, where Sam is serving up his latest recipe. But no sooner has he set the Westens up with their entrees than he doffs his apron, saying he's going to go check out a townhouse. Madeline congratulates him on this big step, but says he forgot something. "Looks like bullets," she observes pleasantly, dropping a handful of rounds into his hand. "I found them in your pants." What have these two been up to? "I heard them rattling around in the washing machine when I was doing your laundry," she says. Oh, thank God there's an innocent explanation. If Sam and Madeline became an item, Michael would be likely to do something desperate, like getting back together with Fi. Busted, Sam doesn't know what to say. "I don't know what to say," he says. Michael barely looks up from his plate long enough to say, "I'd say nothing. Nothing's good. Go with nothing." That's what Sam goes with. What, a person can't walk around with bullets in his pocket? I do it all the time. They're so much more convenient than exact change.
