Over at the clients' house, Fi and Madeline are bundling April, Joey, and a little toddler (aww!) into Madeline's old dark-blue box-mobile so they can stay with her, presumably in the "Michael's Current Clients" suite. April's still got her doubts, but Madeleine assures her, "For two little boys who are being knocked around by their father, Michael would take on the Chinese army, honey." She omits the fact that he would probably lose. Fi pulls April aside to ask if there have been any issues between the two Luna brothers, since Michael's plan is to split them up. April says Erik's got a side business he really doesn't want Quinn to know about, and Fi asks her about that. April's reluctant to share information that Erik told her he'd kill her for revealing, but I can't imagine he'd be cool with her hiring freelance secret agents to defeat his evil plans, either.
By the time we meet up with Sam and Michael in Madeline's garage, Sam has it all figured out as far as how they're going to get to Erik: it turns out that despite the fact that his entire part in the criminal organization is to not be a criminal, he's got a shady side business of his own going on. Apparently he grabs seized contraband off the docks and sells it off the books, pocketing the cash, "anonymously." I don't know how saying "anonymous" makes it so, but it seems to work for him. "So if I showed up as an unsatisfied customer..." Michael suggests, as they notice Joey lurking in the doorway. "He'd never know the difference," Sam finishes. He takes off to "put together a name and a game" for Michael's cover while Joey asks for a word with Michael. Joey takes in the magnifying stand and the soldering iron Michael's working with and asks what's going on. "I'm turning a cell phone into a listening device so I can keep tabs on your stepdad," Michael explains. When Joey asks how he learned that, Michael stammers, "Sort of, special school. Hard to explain." Especially the part where he got picked up by a short bus in the morning. He does let Joey help out by holding a wire for him to solder. Joey voices a few doubts about whether Michael can pull this off, but Michael knows he can make Erik run. "It's gonna be my pleasure."
