We then get a shot of Marina del Rey, and transition to T-Bag, who's psyching himself up to be Cole Pfeiffer. He kisses the bird book for luck, tucks it into his suit jacket pocket, and gives a salute to the mirror, firing off the correct spelling of his new last name: "P-f-e-i-f-f-e-r." See, T-Bag, this could have been prevented if you just read The Phantom Tollbooth, because the illustrations by Jules Pfeiffer would have become indelibly engraved upon your memory. Also, it might have prevented that spree-killing thing that keeps landing you in trouble. Alas, for want of a decent children's library...
So Lincoln (driver), Mahone (shotgun), Michael and Sucre (both backseat) are busy sitting outside the consulate with Charybdis, and Sucre makes a little conversation by asking what diplomats usually do. Mahone replies, "Not a whole lot, but they park anywhere they want." The guys roll forward right as Mr. Tabak gets out of the car, and Roland calls to let them know they're copying the card. Then Mrs. Tabak gets out of the car, to Lincoln's tremendous approval, kisses her husband, and walks off. We cut to Roland noticing the copy levels dropping to zero, and he passes on the bad news to the guys. Linc asks, "How did we lose it? We're right next to him." This is when Michael realizes that Erol Tabak isn't the card holder; his wife is. Before the guys can absorb this, Linc and Mahone decide it's time for the guys to take off, as there's a creepy bald henchman looking right at them. What is it with this show and its aversion to hair? Surely Roland's do isn't sucking up the entire hairdresser budget.
Back at Scylla HQ, Dr. Sara's hard at work on the video footage, so Roland takes the opportunity to sidle over to Bellick and say, "You know what we got in common, right? We both live in the real world, as opposed to these other knuckleheads. So that whole 'prior planning' thing you were talking about? If you've got something on your mind and no one else is interested, you just run it by me, okay?" He goes to knuckle-bump Bellick, but Bellick can't be having with coded terrorist gestures, so he lets Roland hang.
Don Self picks that moment to call Dr. Sara and try to break the news that Bruce Bennett has been killed. Dr. Sara's grief is such that it exiles her to the one-paragraph plot. There will be more on that later.
