Then we cut to Bellick practicing his whole "Brad Bellick, FBI agent" line. It is quite poignant. Once he settles on an introduction that works for him -- "Brad Bellick. I'm with the Bureau" -- he takes it inside and uses it on Sasha. She seems unimpressed. She rolls her eyes as she tells him she's already talked to the cops. Bellick replies, "Yeah, well, I'm no local hayseed cop." He's right -- he's an imported hayseed ex-C.O. That's got to be higher on the law enforcement food chain. Bellick tells Sasha to stop lying, and he reads back her clearly false account in a tremendously skeptical voice. He tells her, "Charles 'Haywire' Patoshik is a paranoid who suffers from fear of crowds. He's terrified of strangers. If he's anywhere, he's in the middle of nowhere keeping to himself, bein' a weirdo." Sasha rolls her eyes and drawls, "And... ?" Bellick lies about being a tremendously decorated agent and points out that, as such, he will make a more credible witness than a juvenile delinquent. It's just too bad Sasha can't rebut, "And who do you think has a bigger credibility problem -- me or the guy who was recently railroaded into a conviction for killing his pal?" Instead she says, "I didn't ask him to do it, but if you didn't notice, I'm not exactly broken up over my dad's death. Why can't you just leave this Patoshik guy alone?" Bellick threatens to lock Sasha up if she doesn't give up Haywire's location. Seconds later, Bellick's called Mahone to pass on his lead. Mahone orders, "I'm on my way. Keep him there. Alone." On his way out the door, he snippily tells Wheeler, "Any information on Burrows and Scofield, I want to be notified instantly -- if that works out for you." Wheeler rolls his eyes. As do I, my friend. As do I.
Back on the train, Michael and Linc debate their course of action. Since there will be cops at the next station, perhaps it would be in their best interest to jump before then. Then again, jumping won't help in the long run.
Naturally, this is when we cut to the diner. C-Note is collecting everyone's valuables, apologizing sincerely. When he hands over the bag, the robber decides it's time to try and regain control of the situation: "Everyone in the storage room now. Get back there until the cops show up." C-Note looks at the man as if he's lost his mind. He tells the guy, "No. I'm a wanted man. The police show up, they'll take me back to prison, and that's fine. But my little girl right here, she's sick, and she's going to be left alone, and I can't let that happen. So can you please let us go?" The guy finally agrees to let C-Note and Dede go, then orders everyone to the back except Blonde Waitress. Because C-Note is not at all okay with turn of events, he tucks Dede into the doorway, then heads back over towards the robber to say, "I think you should let her go, man ... You got the money. Burglary and assault? Hey, that's change, man, but this right here? You will be in prison for the rest of your life, believe me on that." The robber says, "Unless you want your daughter to see you die, move."
