As a suited Michael enters a trendoid-looking restaurant called the Jaguar the next day, he voice-overs, "Covert operatives try to avoid assuming other people's identities whenever possible. There's just too many pitfalls when you're dealing with someone your new identity has corresponded with." Plus you don't necessarily get to show off with a goofy accent. Not that this is going to stop Michael. His VO continues, "Of course it helps if the person you're deceiving is terrified of the person you're pretending to be." With that, Michael pushes his way to the back of the restaurant, where Drew is holding court with some grown-ups in a corner booth. When they object to his interruption he tells them, "I'm Drew's friend. We met on the Internet. Facebook buddies." I guess Michael's lucky that Drew didn't go looking for a hitman on Twitter, because a credulous Drew dismisses his cronies and Michael introduces himself as Larry Sizemore. Drew is not a little confused at meeting someone who told him they were never going to meet, but Michael says that he's here because Drew got sloppy. He forcibly drags Drew into the office in back, yelling at him for asking his coke dealer to hire another killer. As he pushes Drew against the office aquarium and scrapes his forehead against the glass while calling him a "chucklehead," he angrily points out that if the dealer gets arrested for, you know, dealing, he's going to flip on Drew, and then they're all in on conspiracy for murder. As Drew gets thrown onto the sofa, he offers to get rid of the dealer. Michael whips out a wicked little curved knife and says, "If I'm killing anybody, I'm killing you. Some people live and some people die. There's one way you live: you call off this hit." Staring in panic at the knife, Drew admits that he hired two other people. He asks for until 5:00 to fire everyone, and Michael says he'll be back expecting good news at 4:00. "Or you're my next dead-ee," he threatens over his shoulder. Michael sure is bitter about not getting to use much of a character voice as Larry, isn't he? He packed, like, five Larry-isms into that one-minute scene.
