At the coffee shop, the cheque arrives. The Slattery brothers immediately start fighting over it, and Marin, without so much as a token reach, says she's going to leave before it gets ugly. She pushes her chair back, and both men chivalrously stand up. Geez, how come none of the dudes I know have nice manners like that?

Ian asks, "You don't want her, but no one else can have her -- is that it?" Jack shakes his head, sadly, and Ian gets out his wallet, crabbily saying he doesn't blame Jack: "She is hot." Eh. The hotness is mitigated quite a lot by how irritating she is, not that anyone asked me. "Don't go there, man," warns Jack. Ian presses his point, Jack cautions him again to stow it, and Ian finally can't help himself: "She is one hot piece of ass." Ian straightens up, staring daggers at his brother...
