Karen walks into Charlie's strip club. She spots Alvin ["played by Xander Berkeley, a.k.a. George Mason from 24" -- Wing Chun] drinking a shot at the bar and says hello. He nearly spits out his drink and then asks if he can buy her a drink. Karen says that they have to talk outside. Alvin tells the bartender to tell Charlie that Alvin Simmons stopped by. Karen reminds him that he's supposed to be in Kansas. Alvin says that he had to come back. Karen says that he's in Witness Protection and Relocation, which means he's not supposed to come back. Alvin claims that he was being followed in Kansas. Karen asks about his wife and son. Alvin says that they're with her parents. Oh, no one will be able to find them there. Karen says that he should have called her. Alvin says he panicked. Karen says it doesn't make any sense that he would go to a strip club owned by the guy who's trying to kill him. Alvin claims he fell victim to his old routines. Karen reminds him that he's an accountant, not a "button man." Alvin says that you don't need to be a hit man to go to a strip club. Karen gives him a look, and Alvin says he got tired of waiting forty minutes every morning trying to get up the nerve to start his car. He thought maybe if he talked to Charlie, they could work things out. Karen says he should know that's not going to happen. Alvin claims that he and Charlie are friends, but Karen says that Charlie doesn't have any friends. Shouldn't Alvin realize at this point that he's not going to win this argument? Alvin asks what they do now.
Karen takes Alvin back to her place. He asks if she just moved in, in reference to the many boxes sitting around. Karen says she's been there three years, and tells him to sit tight until she can get him on a plane back to Kansas. They walk inside and discover that Marshall's poker game is in full swing. Marshall recognizes Alvin, and they exchange pleasantries. Alvin recognizes one of the poker players who used to work for Charlie, and he tells Karen that all of the poker players are cons. One of them corrects him, "Ex-cons." One of the guys asks Karen if she's playing, and Karen says she has to go out. Mordecai asks if she's called Will. Marshall gives Mordecai a look like, "Cheese it!" and Karen gives her father a look like, "Oh, no you didn't!" Marshall says the guys were just asking if she was still going out with the married FBI guy. Another player says he has the perfect guy for Karen, and he gets out in six months. Everyone chuckles. Ah, ex-con humor. Karen asks the guys where they would go to get a fake passport quickly. Mordecai says he'd go to the Greek, but Marshall says he's "doing a nickel at Lompoc." Sometimes I wish I had ex-con friends just so I could say things like "doing a nickel." Karen says it would have to be done in twenty-four hours. Mordecai says the only guy who could do it is Herve Castillo, adding, "If you knock on his door, you best do it with a SWAT team." Will Colin Farrell and Sam Jackson be involved?
