Ellen gets into the back of the FBI agents' car and demands an explanation for what happened to Pete. Who is working for whom here? Are all informants this annoyingly bossy and demanding? And why is the FBI talking to her anyway? Wouldn't they want to keep their distance after almost killing Patty's uncle? Wouldn't, say, a phone call be more prudent? They tell Ellen that Pete overdosed on his wife's pills. They got him to the hospital, but he's in a coma. Ellen gasps, "Why?" And Mario Van Peebles shakes his head in disbelief at this supposedly precocious young lawyer and Agent Glenn rolls his eyes in dismay. MVP fills Ellen in that Pete tried to kill himself so he wouldn't have to turn Patty in. He made sure not to use any big words and spoke really loudly so maybe Ellen would get it. Ellen wants to know what will happen when or if Pete wakes up. MVP takes a deep breath, holds down his bitch slap with his right arm, and reminds her that they still have evidence on Pete and he will have to choose whether to go to jail or give them Patty. He draws a chart for Ellen and then sings a little rhyming song to help her remember. She nods, but you can tell she doesn't get it. MVP sighs and considers changing jobs. Maybe they'll let him on Burn Notice. They seem smart over there.
Patty's husband Phil lunches with Lester a.k.a. Dave. Phil gets right to the point: Dave called him and said there was an opportunity. What is it? Lester leans forward and tells him that he should invest in UNR. Phil looks skeptical and Lester reminds him that they have worked together for a long time and he has never led him astray. The stock price is low right now, but the word on the street (the 24 k gold-lined Wall Street, that is, not, you know, your street) is that Walter Kendrick has lined up a bunch of private investors who are going to dump money into UNR. Phil looks intrigued, but reminds Lester that there is a slight conflict of interest, what with his wife suing UNR and all. Lester points out that Patty's suit was based on the falling stock price and once the price goes back up, her case will be moot. Phil reminds Lester that Patty doesn't lose. Okay hold up. Phil is a douche. We all know this. But he is smart, right? Does he realize that if he buys UNR stock after Patty caused the price to fall with her whole "Walter Kendrick is a murderer" spiel, that could look suspicious? Okay I know he is having an affair, that he and Patty have a marriage of paired ambition and social status convenience and probably haven't had sex since 1984. Like the Clintons. But I don't think that he hates her and/or wants to rain down destruction. But maybe he does? Lester tells him to invest in UNR and some day he will thank him.
