Don freaks out as he holsters his gun -- not a safe time to be freaking out, dude -- and bellows about finding his keys. Charlie, looking worried, tells him to check the kitchen. Don slams through the swinging door. Alan stands up and tells Charlie he has to help Don. What? He's going to write an algorithm to help him find his keys? Alan mentions Charlie using his "chase curves." "Pursuit curves," Charlie corrects him, and then says it's not really applicable. Of course, you KNOW he's going to change his mind because he's got a related theory in the back of his mind, right? Right. Charlie mathmobabbles some more about something regarding Set Covering Deployment Problem that he's "always suspected," as Don slams back into the room, screaming that his keys weren't in there. Alan points to them on the coffee table, and Don grabs at them as he catches sight of the breaking news on the television. We hear the newscaster talk about dead bodies and then clueless Charlie says, "It's potentially revolutionary…" SHUT UP, CHARLIE! Why is everything with him "revolutionary" or "ground-breaking" or some other ridiculous hyperbole? Charlie goes on about his Set Covering Deployment, which determines where the Coast Guard decides to set lighthouses to best illuminate the coastlines.
Thankfully, we head back to C&C Convict Factory, where Colby uses bolt cutters to end their three-legged-race. Carter wants to know where he got the key to the cuffs. "Swallowed it right before they busted me. Figured it was just a matter of time," Colby lies. You know, I really do love Colby, but the image of him pawing through his own poo to retrieve the key and then stick it back in his mouth just isn't something I need to have in my mind. Even if it is made up. Which it is. But still. Ooh, but Colby lying to Carter is quite significant! Up until now, we could have figured that Carter was in on the whole transfer escape plan, but the fact that he didn't know about the key could prove that Colby isn't necessarily a traitor. Colby further explains that standard-issue cuffs all use the same key. They might want to look into changing such a fallible system. Colby snaps off the remaining cuff on Carter's wrist. "I have to make a call," Carter announces. Colby directs him to a landline in the garage. Ooh, deception number two, since we know Colby has a cell on him! Carter barks at someone that they need a ride, while Colby turns his back and whips out the cell. He text-messages, "Where are you?" Carter slams down the phone and says they have to get to Fifth and Alvarado. Colby slides on some stolen sunglasses and orders Carter to put on a convenient shirt to hide the bloodstains on his wife-beater. Colby sheds his prison blue shirt and jams a black knit cap on as cops arrive. Carter realizes he must've tripped the alarm, and they beat it.
