We then cut to Mrs. Tabak entering her office, where General Von Baldy has been waiting. He greets her with, "Lisa!" and I preen, because if ingesting startling amounts of pseudoephedrine has done anything for me, it's unlocked my secret yearning to get a shout-out on this show. Perhaps giving a minion of pure evil my first name is the writers' way of saying 'hello'! Or perhaps they're trying to evoke parallels between this lady and Queen Noor, a.k.a. the former Lisa Halaby. But whatever the reason, Von Baldy appears to have a soft spot for this particular cardholder. He also tells her, "The value of the kip is at 10. When it reaches 15, I'll let you know. You'll have to leave immediately." Lisa would like to go now, but Von Baldy reminds her she's on the hook for a charity function and she must keep up appearances. Although Von Baldy is nothing if not courtly when talking to Lisa, she is a little short with him. This only appears to act as catnip to General Von Baldy.
We then cut to our away team lurking in the courtyard that's conveniently placed outside the consulate, and when Lisa appears, Sucre prepares to spring into action. But Mahone stops him, pointing out that Lisa's surrounded by three guys in suits forming a triangle around her. It's as if she's reversed the genders on a Robert Palmer video, which Lisa may well have done, but really, those three guys are also One World Conspiracy goons meant to keep anyone away from her. "We're not getting near anyone today," Mahone concludes. The One World Conspiracy squad walks out of view, and who should pop into Linc's line of sight just then but T-Bag? The look on Linc's face when he realizes what he's seeing is a hilarious blend of resignation and irritation. I like how he's not even surprised anymore. T-Bag, on the other hand, looks like he's about to soil his shorts. And when Michael and Linc begin sprinting across the plaza to get to T-Bag, the one-handed ex-con does not run toward them, screaming like a man with a blood vendetta. He flees.
We get a footrace -- T-Bag has the sense to ditch the bird book in a bank of impatiens as he runs -- and he hides behind a kiosk to catch his breath. When T-Bag peers around a corner, he discovers that he's looking right into Linc's face. "Hey, Teddy," Linc says calmly before slamming T-Bag into the kiosk wall. T-Bag gasps out, "If it ain't the Brothers Grim." Oh, good one. But I personally would have gone with "the Brothers McSullen." Lincoln does a few LINCOLN SMASHes, and yet T-Bag manages to whine about being left behind in Panama. Michael has no time for this; he just wants the bird book. T-Bag feigns ignorance and Linc asks -- probably for the first time in his life -- with great desire, "Where's the book?" T-Bag is like, "I am sure I'd be delighted to answer your query once you explain to that security guard why you're manhandling me." The brothers reluctantly let T-Bag go. Linc gives T-Bag a punch in the kidneys as a parting gift, but T-Bag soon recovers, and he skips off to find the bird book before resuming his new life as Cole Pfeiffer.
