Miguel walks into Zambrono's hotel room. "Wild night last night, Mi Lomo?" he asks. "Does it show?" Zambrono asks. "Girl treat you right?" Miguel wonders, as a hooker scampers into the other room. Zambrono chuckles and tells him that he runs a very nice hotel. Hookers plus blow equals a fine lodging establishment! After a moment, Miguel takes a seat and tries to give Zambrono a lesson in cross-cultural business ethics. Zambrono sits opposite him. He's wearing only a t-shirt, boxers, and a pair of boots, which he sets on the coffee table with a thunk. Good luck with that etiquette lesson, Miguel. Miguel tells him to not to wear black to their meeting with Chao, not to show him the bottom of his feet, and, above all else, not to touch him on the head. "Now you're going too far, Miguel. Because whenever I see a Chinese guy, the first thing I want to do is touch his head," Zambrono snarks. That makes two of us, my friend. "I hope you'll agree that what is important is making the deal," Miguel tells him carefully. Zambrono gets up and gargles with some beer. He spits into the ice bucket. Classy! "I just hope he doesn't lick his lips when he sees Pepino," he muses. Miguel tells him quite strongly not to bring the dog to the meeting. Zambrono whines that he brings the dog everywhere. Miguel tells him very firmly to remember how much money they've got riding on this meeting. "Why did we go into business with this chucklehead?" his Mole asks.
Dr. Benben and Baldy. Baldy advises him to ease off on the gambling. "No way am I going to be able to raise two million dollars," Dr. Benben muses. "Did you go back to the track last night?" Baldy asks. "Did you lose $12,500?" Apparently, for $200, the betting manager at Dr. Benben's racetrack will tell anyone anything about anyone. "I think this is for the best?" Baldy says. He's one of those guys who sound like he's asking a question every time he makes a statement. "Because I think you have some issues? That need to be dealt with?" Dr. Benben still can't believe that his buddy Nick at the Track sold him out. "Are you hearing me here, Woody?" Baldy asks. Dr. Benben groans that he can't believe Nick is going to cost him $2 million.
