Casa de Queso. Miguel goes into the darkroom to find Marlene, who's mucking about with some negatives. "What does he want?" she asks. "They want me to break the Colonel out of jail," Miguel tells her wearily. "Mickey! I wish you'd never tried to trade favors with the CIA," Marlene replies. I wish I had a dollar for every time someone has said that to me. Miguel says nothing, then asks Marlene to help him figure out a way to do it without getting any of his compadres killed. The phone rings. "Yes?" Marlene asks. She listens, then looks up at Miguel, disgusted.
Upstairs, the object of Marlene's disgust -- Ernesto -- is talking to Joey. He has something for them, he says. "I think you're going to like it. It's outside," he tells them. Joey wants to see what Ernesto brought them, but Miguel is horrified by the idea of his baby being infected by Ernesto's very special brand of crazy.
Outside is a huge SUV with a big bow on it. Marlene and Miguel make identical appalled faces. "Surprise! That's for you. To make up for trying to beat you with my whip!" Ernesto chirps. "Wonderful," Marlene crabs. Must she be so unpleasant? Ernesto is just trying to apologize! Ernesto asks if things are okay now, with them. "It matches your house," he offers meekly. Miguel and Marlene are looking stunned when another car pulls into the driveway, this one piloted by Rafael. With a dead body in the back of his truck. This, of course, is when all hell breaks loose: Miguel is yelling that he doesn't do business at his house! Rafael is tossing around Patterson's DEA badge and looking for his $500,000! Marlene is squealing like a scalded cat! Finally, Miguel tackles Ernesto and forces him to focus. "You bring this to my house! You bring this to my house! My family is here!" (La Familia Count: three.) Ernesto doesn't really get the logic, here. "Insane! You assassinated a U.S. Federal Agent!" Marlene yells. Joey watches from the window. If y'all are so worried about the kid, maybe you should keep your voices down, you know. Miguel asks if Jorge knows about this assassination thing. "He approved it," Ernesto tells him. " If La Dea comes after us, we go after La Dea." Everyone looks at each other for a beat. "So, you want the body or what?" Rafael finally asks. Hee. "I pay for it, no?" Ernesto replies. Finally, Miguel shoos all of them off his property and away from the house. "Miguel's a party pooper, anyway. Let's go," Ernesto says. I sort of love Crazy Ernesto. Everyone very cheerfully leaves, as Miguel and Marlene mope.
