Back at Madeline's garage, Michael is telling a doubtful Jesse about his plan to grab Kendra. We also learn that Michael forwarded the phone Kendra left him so she can't track him with it. Then Madeline comes out, saying she's hoping he can meet a friend of hers. Michael tries to blow it off, but she says, "Okay, I'll tell her not to worry about the drug dealers." As she storms out, knowing Michael will follow, Jesse adds that it's a real problem.. "I expect this from her," Michael grits.
In Madeline's living room, Madeline's friend is a doctor named "Lauren -- Concerned Girlfriend," played by Justina Machado from Six Feet Under. She tells them about the sitch, which is more exposition than we really need here. Suffice it to say that she works at a neighborhood clinic run by her boyfriend, David. Apparently David hasn't been doing the live-and-let-live thing with the drug dealers on the corner near the clinic, and now he's drawn their ire by calling the cops on them. He got beat up, and she's afraid he'll get himself killed next. That would be the logical progression. Madeline steals Michael's line: "He'll see what he can do."
At the clinic in Homestead, Michael, Jesse, and Fi show up, but despite looking a little roughed up, David isn't interested in their help. David says all he's going to do is keep calling the cops, but they insist that he's only going to get himself killed. "So you just snap your fingers and the dealers disappear?" David asks sarcastically. "It's worked before," Michael says, although without the hyperlink. David agrees to let them give it a try, which earns him the subtitle "David - The Client." I think throwing a "reluctant" in there would have been in order, subtitles.
Outside, they discuss David. Jesse thinks he's inspirational, while Michael calls him suicidal. I'm just impressed that David doesn't ask people to call him "Dr. Dave." Just then Michael gets a call from Kendra. They talk about the deal, and agree to a meeting tomorrow. Fi thinks Michael's end of it sounded too flirty, and he tells her he's trying to kidnap her and tie her to a chair. "You are not helping your cause," Fi quips. Fi and Jesse get into the car to go check out the drug operation, and Michael asks for a ride so he can go scope out the meeting site. "Take the bus, Romeo," Fi says. Wow, I hope Michael reminds her about her hair-trigger jealousy when she ends up in bed with Jesse.
