...where he (re-)introduces himself as "Agent Thompson" from the FBI. Or Thomson. There's no indication either way, but that is making me want to go read some Tintin. Patrick asks if he should call a lawyer, which is an expense I'm sure he really needs, but Thom(p)son says that while he can, he's there unofficially to ask what Patrick can tell him about Hess and his involvement with the DA, as they found boxing gloves with Patrick's signature at the DA's house and a picture of Patrick with the DA's kid. Probably relieved to know that that's the extent of it, Patrick tells him that he signs a lot of gloves and takes a lot of pictures for public appearances, but Thom(p)son tells him they know he paid him twenty-five grand to "middle a favor." Patrick tells Thom(p)son he doesn't have that kind of money, and he can check with the IRS, but Thom(p)son agrees that he doesn't, which is why he wants to know who gave it to him. Patrick denies any knowledge of what he's talking about, so Thom(p)son tells him he knows the world Patrick travels in, and he should look out for himself, because in a day, "the circus" will be there -- police, Federal agents, "maybe even a perp walk," but it doesn't have to go that way. However, Patrick still flatly refuses to entertain the idea, so Thom(p)son tells him he's got a day to determine how important the ten-million-dollar fight he's got coming is to him.
