Mitch's car. He gets a call from Tom who apologizes for being in such a bad mood the other day, and that he'd like to see the inside of the building on Saturday. They set a time. Mitch pulls up to the firehouse. It's been gutted. All of the electrical equipment has been pulled from the walls. Mitch does a few "what the hell?" voice-overs and they zoom in on him looking concerned. Fade to white.
I'm sorry this episode is so boring. I really am.
I don't know about this Subway Sandwich Diet, but I do know one thing. If you ever end up on my side of Austin, I highly recommend the Subway down the street from my house. At about six in the evening it becomes a magical place. Everyone who works there is about to get off work and is in a good mood, and all of the cute, sweaty boys are just getting off their hard labor jobs and they all stand there with their tools dangling off their shorts and their nice, tight calves and their cute hair tucked into their baseball caps and they are all smiling and joking and I become fourteen.
Mitch shows up at the Russians' lot and tells them he wants his stuff back and reinstalled. They want fifty thousand dollars. Now. HRM drives off.
"I need thirty thousand dollars. I'll pay you back in a month." Pan over from Mitch to Elizabeth, who seems very concerned. She doesn't have that kind of cash. She offers to cash in her IRA. Mitch says he thought she had more money. If she did, why would she be living in your house, Mitch? Elizabeth offers to come up with a couple of thousand. Mitch says that it was a mistake asking her, and that she should forget about it. She says that she's in shock because Mary hasn't ever mentioned that things were that bad. Mitch says he's kinda sorta not told Mary about any of it. He didn't want to worry her. He didn't want to tell her until it was serious. Elizabeth says she thinks this is pretty serious. Mitch asks to keep it between the two of them until he tells Mary. She asks how long that will be. He says he's having lunch with her in an hour. "My lips are sealed," Elizabeth says. They hug. I spend an hour and a half surfing the recaps of City of Angels just to have something else to do.
