As Fi and Michael leave the party, he tells her he'll be needing some cash. "Seymour's not the type of guy I want to owe money to long-term." "If you need cash, you can get a job like the rest of us," Fi smirks at him, like she's on her way to a shift at Waffle House or something. Alternately, Michael could try taking money for the jobs he does do. But he only whines that he can't fill out a W-2. "If the people who burned me find out I'm looking for a job, they'll wonder why I need money." Uh, for rent? Yogurt? Your growing tab at Radio Shack? Lots of us need money for completely legitimate purposes, Michael. Even I'm not doing these recaps for free. Fi tells him that she just passed on a boring job for an art dealer, and suggests Michael take the job under a cover ID. Sounds simple enough, right? That's how we know it won't be.
At Carlito's, Michael explains to a skeptical Sam why he's working with Seymour: "He's connected, and he doesn't mix well with government types." As far as we've seen, the only type he does mix well is the type that walks around in a bikini. Sam hands Michael a folder containing the resume for his new cover ID, Miles Parker, who has a background in corporate espionage. Michael answers his phone, and Sam hears Michael talk to Fi and just casually suggest dinner later. Not casually enough to avoid setting off Sam's radar, though. "Just to debrief," Michael assures Sam. Sam barely represses a "That's what she said."
