One moment, I'll check.



- Excuse me, Holly, is this the file?

- Yes. That's it. Yeah.

From now on you'll be working

with A.T.F. On this.

With all due respect,

I know we've had our setbacks,

but the A.T.F. Directly interfered

with our operation.

- What happened was their fault.

- I'm hearing your defensive voice again.

- I am not being defensive!

- You say that whenever you're getting defensive, Allen.

You want me to be defensive.

All right.

You might see yourself

as all over the 6:00 news on this thing,

but the reality is, you're putting

a serious operation at risk.

Now, I'm hearing some very real

masculinity issues.

What the hell's

the matter with you?

We've got a lead on another shipment.

We don't need this interference.

Allen, this is

hardly my call, okay?

Coordinate your efforts with Agent

McClaren, and you'll both report to me.

That's the way

it's gonna be!

[Man] I agree with you.

Very little I can do.

- [Timer Buzzes]

- Tracy, dinner!

- Hi. What are we having?

- Only the absolute best, homemade.

- Did you wash your hands?

- Yep.

- How's practice?

- Good!

- Yeah?

- Yeah.

Dad, can you help me

with my foul shots tomorrow?

- We have a game on Friday.

- Yeah. You bet.

- I'm not missin' this one.

- [Giggles]

[Crickets Chirping]

You truly are gorgeous.

You know that?

- Do you remember...

- Hmm?

- That night at Grover's Point?

- Mm-hmm.

The thunder...

and the lightning...

- [Together] And the candles.

- [Laughing]


Be right back.



I wanted to tell you, but I...

thought you should have

some breathing room first.


After they cut my hours,

I just couldn't make ends meet.

God! Melanie, why didn't

you say something? I could've...

You could've what, Jack?
