In a dark room, a bald man stands near an open window, smoking. The title card says "5:22 p.m., Old Executive Office Building." Out in the hall, we see Ron Butterfield and a bunch of Secret Service agents marching down the hall. They bust into the room, causing the fellow to toss his butt in panic. They've got their guns drawn; he puts his hands up. He had no idea that the anti-smoking restrictions had become this tight. Ron asks if the fellow is Raqim Ali. The actor playing Raqim is Ajay Naidu, (Samir from Office Space). He does a very good job, too. He replies, terrified, "Y-yes. The...there's..." Ron tells him to stay calm, and explains who he is. He tells Raqim to keep his hands over his head, and to step away from the window. "We're going to ask you some questions." And it's time for a commercial.
Ron is waiting for Leo when Leo returns to his office. Ron tells him: "Five hours ago, Khuram Sharif was taken into custody while crossing from Ontario into Vermont." (Even I, with my flimsy grasp of geography, am fairly certain that this province does not border that state. ["Correct; Vermont borders Quebec." -- Wing Chun]) "There was a warrant for his arrest in connection with an attempted bombing at La Guardia. Turning state's evidence over to the attorney, he named several co-conspirators, one of whom was Yaarun Nabi. A preliminary check in the NCIC kicked out five aliases, one of which was Raqim Ali." I thought there were four. Whatever. "There are three Raqim Alis. One's a software designer in Spokane, another's a caterer in Los Angeles." Leo asks who the third one is. Ron: "He works in the White House." Leo looks stunned. He makes a sound halfway between a sputter and a sigh and says, "Well...it was only a matter of time, huh?" Ron says, "Yeah," and opens the door for Leo as they leave.
