Elsewhere, John (as Mr. Baum) is strolling into a science class, and sits next to the same blond girl he noticed earlier. Behind them is the girl who was upset by the "trompe le monde" or whatever. This is going to be kind of like Bayside High in that all the characters are in all the same classes together, right? I say "almost," because Cameron doesn't appear to be -- oh, wait, here she is, knocking on the door and telling the teacher she's "transferring in." This, to John, is "acting like a freak" and he berates her as she sits down next to him. Hey, I bet Cameron at least can find a damn pencil in her damn backpack when the teacher announces a pop quiz.
Agent Ellison strolls up to Carlos' house. Cameron's friend the Silent Chiquita is on the porch, throwing looks of indifference in all directions as Ellison walks in to talk to Carlos.
"Your sweet Uncle Enrique lived a colourful life. One we have not yet painted in full," says Ellison, who should think about getting to the point sometime soon. "Every day is a new adventure. Who can keep up?" shrugs Carlos. They tacitly acknowledge Enrique's rat status, and then Ellison says Enrique called Carlos three times the day he was murdered. "What'd you chat about?" The Lakers, says Carlos, who then says Kobe is "the bomb" which is the first time I've heard anyone call anything "the bomb" in like 10 years. Ellison calls Kobe a "ball hog" and we transition into Kobe-as-metaphor territory with Carlos saying Kobe's "all alone" who's "got no one else who can shoot." and Ellison asking if Carlos is like Kobe, all alone, and Carlos indicates the thugs around him and says, "All these boys can shoot," and Ellison chuckles all not-intimidated. "I didn't kill my uncle," says Carlos. Ellison stands up and says, "No. And you're too smart to know nothing about who did." And no, he wasn't speaking sarcastically and using a double negative incorrectly. He gives Carlos a card and says he'll be in touch.
A man with a British accent, wearing a white shirt and tie, enters his home, talking on his cell phone about a guy who's "eighteen months ahead of the Germans" which I guess could mean this guy is already way into 2009, and complains about grant money not going to The Cutting Edge or maybe just "the cutting edge" and at any rate he stops when he realizes the Homeless Snake Eyes is standing in his living room. Chrome Artie picks him up by the throat and holds him there for several seconds, which sounds bad, but this is how people greet each other in 2029.
