Michael and Fi are at their nice dinner at a nice restaurant, having a nice dinner conversation. "I got rid of the rest of the C-4," Fi says. Okay, maybe not that last one. Michael says it was worth it to ditch the cops, and Fi agrees -- now she can bring Michael along on a bunch of new gigs. But Michael is not about that at all. "I still need back in," he says. Fi was hoping he would have changed, like Tommy, but he just shakes his head. "I'm free of the people who burned me. I'm clear of the cops. This is the moment I've been waiting for." "This is the moment I've been waiting for, too," Fi whispers, and secretly pulls a hair out of her nose so she can spill a tear down her cheek. Michael whispers her name and she says, "Let's just enjoy dinner." Good plan, but it doesn't really seem to be happening. They probably should have just ordered the yogurt.
