He ain't dead, 'cause he's my brother

And now, Michael is starting in on the mural of prison-break planning. You will find this sort of thing riveting only if you like those sequences in Trading Spaces where everyone cleans up in fast-forward and acts all goofy during it.

And now, C-Note's about to get busted. We see him glance down at a picture of the wife and kid, as if to remind himself that there's a reason he's doing this, and it's all very sentimental and I get how many of the themes here seem to be about the insane stuff we do for our families, but I still think if he had come out with his story, he wouldn't be in this situation. And in the time it takes me to type this out, C-Note's been busted.

Meanwhile, T-Note's trying to secure his position with the kid who likes him by telling her, "You know, math was never my best subject either. But I got through it by learning some new tricks." Ooh, are we going to see the one where we learn how you can always tell if a number's divisible by three by adding up all its digits and seeing if the sum's divisible by three? Or the one where we learn how you can tell if a number's divisible by seven by doubling the last digit, subtracting it from the rest of the number, then seeing if that result is also divisible by seven?

No -- it's a whole new one. T-Bag holds up both hands, all fingers out. He folds down his pinky and prods, "Nine times one is…" Gracie looks at his nine splayed fingers and answers, "Nine." T-Bag folds down a second finger and asks for the answer to nine times two. Gracie counts the eight splayed fingers and realized it's eighteen. And they continue on through -- the folded fingers representing multiplicands and the outstretched fingers representing the second digit of each result. Well, it's no Chisenbop, but whatever works.

As Gracie shares the news with Susan, we see T-Bag looking awfully smitten. It's not clear with whom, exactly. Susan sends Gracie off to show her brother, the better to thank T-Bag by planting a big kiss on him. I just have to wonder: is the dating pool in the greater Chicago area really so shallow as to make him appear the catch? As Susan walks back in, T-Bag appears to be steeling himself against something (or for something…), and he turns to watch Gracie showing the math trick to her brother. Susan resumes doing the dishes -- just in time to see a segment of America's Most Wanted prominently featuring her dreamy new boyfriend.
