Dave walks out of Claire's montage and down the street, guitar case in hand, heart full of love. As he arrives at a door, a car pulls up. Two men exit. One calls out, "Dave O'Leary?" Dave turns. The man identifies himself as Agent Morris, "Immigration and Customs Enforcer." Seriously, is that a title? Oh man, we should call the TWoP Mods enforcers. They've already got cop names. Morris says, "I'm afraid I'm going to need you to come with me." Dave's smile fades. He looks like he wants to run, but he doesn't. Morris adds, "Nice story about you in the paper, by the way." And for a second, I thought the episode ended there, because that's exactly the note on which Thomas would have ended (and typically did) a more romantic episode of Veronica Mars. No carrot -- just the stick. But it's not Veronica Mars so let's keep going, since they do.
Tres Equis: Trevor shows up at work, where Felix informs him that Dave called and left a message that he's being deported back to Dublin. Trevor leaves the bar before Felix can finish, but he does manage to say, "You might want to get a cell phone." Hee. In his room, Trevor checks on his billiards tally string thing, and is sad to see all one hundred beads are still slid all the way over to the left hand side. Pixie dust.
Nighttime; New York City Streets: Madelyn tells Trevor that she didn't even get to say goodbye. Trevor says, "You know, I was reading Modern Invention Magazine. There was this riveting piece in there. Apparently, there are these flying contraptions now that allow passengers to travel great distances." Maddie protests that she has a life and job here. "I can't just pick up." I add, "And leave," because that looks strange, there. Trevor then repeats his pet phrase: "True love crosses oceans." Maddie says, "Haven't you heard, Trevor? People don't fall in love in two days." He says that's where they differ. "You take your advice from Dr. McRae. I take my advice from Captain Kirk." Madelyn says she can't put herself out there like that. Her eyes fill up. Her voice breaks. "That's how you get hurt." Trevor says that he gets it. He pulls out his cell and tells her he has a phone now, and not to be a stranger. He leaves her with instructions to "Be good." As she watches him walk away, we hear Trevor's phone call with Claire. He says, "It was all I could do not to throw her over my shoulder and put her on a plane." Claire's glad he didn't, but Trevor tells her he had one more card left to play. "I have no idea if it worked."
