When we come back from the credits (and some Miami skyscraper porn), Michael's at the Miami-Dade lockup, being ushered into the visiting room in his orange jumpsuit. Sam's on the other side of the glass, and he starts with the bad news, which is that Michael is still burned. How is it bad news that Michael doesn't have to change the title of his show? Sam moves on to the "good" news: "Whatever magic they were working to keep you out of the police computers, they stopped. Oh, and you're back on the radar of foreign agencies, too." That's kind of a broad definition of good news, even though Sam argues that change is good. Michael moves on to the question of getting him out of jail, but Sam's hands are tied until Michael is charged with something. Which apparently he hasn't been yet. Seriously, the cops can't come up with anything? Just in the few minutes he was on dry land before getting bagged, he shoplifted (or vendor-cart-lifted), fled from the police, then committed B&E, vandalism, and possibly telephone fraud. I don't think the police are trying very hard. Those sound more like the Burn Notice loser cops we know. Sam points out that Michael isn't helping by not talking. Michael unconvincingly pleads memory loss. "Yeah, the cops, they love that one," Sam agrees, almost as much as they love the fact that Michael doesn't have any IDs or bank accounts, so Sam's working on that with Madeline. Michael remembers to ask if his mom's okay. Sam cagily says she is. "She's just a little upset about the, you know, the house blowing up. It's not the whole house," Sam quickly adds. "I think you're better off in here until your mom cools off." Sam's got one more piece of news: "Your shades got delivered to the loft, along with this." Sam holds up to the glass a greeting card with a cartoon of a sad kitten on it and the words "Missing You." Heh. The handwritten message inside simply reads, "Let us know when you've had enough. --Management." Enough of what? Clearly not enough to send the very best, because that looks like it was produced by the "USA Network Prop Department" line of greetings.
