Eliot Spencer:
[Eliot and Maggie are having coffee] You come here a lot?

Maggie Collins:
No, I just want to see you. [Eliot appears to be in a slight shock]

Sophie Devereaux:
[Sitting in the van, Nathan, Parker, Sophie and Alec monitoring the conversation] Thats's a date!

Parker:
Do we really need to put a button cam on Eliot?

Nathan Ford:
Safety issue. [Alec and Parker nod sarcastically]

Maggie Collins:
[Panning back to the Eliot and Maggie] We're not going to talk about art all afternoon, are we?

Eliot Spencer:
No. [Eliot sounds a little uncomfortable]

Maggie Collins:
Good. That's all my ex-husband wants to talk about. That was so tedious. [Eliot looking uncomfortable and Nathan shrug defensively in the van]

Maggie Collins:
Listen, I want to thank you. [Maggie puts her hand on top of Eliot's hand] I haven't dated a lot since my marriage broke up.

Eliot Spencer:
[Eliot answers uncomfortably] Sorry to hear that.

Maggie Collins:
No Don't be. He was obsessive, perfectionist, controlling...

Nathan Ford:
[Back in the van, Nathan became defensive] Organized, she used to say that I was organized. Punctual!

Alec Hardison:
[Parker, Sophie, and Alec nod sarcastically] uh huh.

Eliot Spencer:
Must have some good qualities.

Maggie Collins:
No, not even in bed

Parker:
[Alec's eyes light up] oooooo! [Parker, Sophie and Alec all turn towards Nathan]

Maggie Collins:
Every night was prom night. You know what I mean. [pausing with a smile] The worst of all, [Eliot appears extremely uncomfortable] He completely forgot that I gave him that button cam for Christmas three years ago. [Maggie smiles knowingly]

Nathan Ford:
[the van door opens. Nathan, Parker, Sophie and Alec in shock when they see Maggie] I can explain... [Parker, Sophie and Alec shrug their shoulders]

[Jimmy Ford shows Nathan a map outlining their plan. Dissolve to Leverage HQ where the same data is rendered on Hardison's screens]

Nathan Ford:
[pointing out locations] First Boston Independent, State Street branch of the Boston Bank, Commonwealth Loan and Securities. Now...

[Nathan walks over to the desk with Hardison, Sophie, and Eliot]

Parker:
[Parker's at the screens] First Independent's got a Glenn-Reeder alarm system, series F-900. Two guards at the front...

Parker:
[laughing]... one guard in the back. Cameras record, *not monitored*. Daily turnover: two million. State Street?: mostly commercial papers and loans, but they do have bearer bonds in a basement lockdown room, just takes a key and a retinal scanner. Commonwealth: they...

Parker:
[snickers] their alarm system's a holdover from the '70s. but...

Parker:
[laughs] but it's...

[Parker notices everyone is staring at her]

Parker:
[looks down at her clothes] What?

Parker:
[suddenly self-conscious and hurt] What do you guys do on *your* weekends?

[Parker walks off]

Eliot Spencer:
There's something wrong with you.

Sophie Devereaux:
So, which one's he gonna hit?

[back with Jimmy Ford]

Nathan Ford:
None of them?

Jimmy Ford:
None of them. But, see, since we control the precinct alarm system, the cops are gonna think they're being robbed. Now, think of this, Nathan: three banks being robbed *at the same time*. They're gonna think it's armageddon. Every cop in town is gonna be headin' to those three banks.

Nathan Ford:
Yeah, and away from...?

Pieter:
Mm-hmm.

[at Leverage]

Sophie Devereaux:
Away from what?

Nathan Ford:
I don't know. He won't tell me. Yet! He won't tell me *yet*.

Eliot Spencer:
Do you realize how many banks there are south of the precinct?

Parker:
[quickly] 67.

Nathan Ford:
Maggie, it's not what you think.

Parker:
[speaking quickly] It's your first time being a fugitive, so I made you a bag.

Maggie Collins:
Thank you, Parker. It's not that I don't appreciate getting out of jail - I just can't live my life a fugitive.

Nathan Ford:
But you're not a fugitive.

Parker:
Passports, money, lockpicks.

Nathan Ford:
You were released, not broken out.

Parker:
Toothpaste, explosives. Do *not* mix these up.

Maggie Collins:
Thank you, Parker. But you released me to run. I'm not going anywhere until my name is cleared.

Nathan Ford:
Yeah, right, right, that's what I'm here to do: to get the egg back and clear your name.

Maggie Collins:
But you're clearing my name with thieves! No offense, Parker.

Parker:
At what?

Jim Sterling:
Actually, Nate's been rehabilitated. He's here on official I.Y.S. business as a consultant. I brought him on.

Maggie Collins:
You've gone straight?

Nathan Ford:
The- the only reason they are here is to deal with the authorities and to get you released and everything. They're not staying.

Parker:
[scoffs]

Jim Sterling:
Absolutely not. I don't trust them. They don't trust me.

Nathan Ford:
Right.

Parker:
Eliot already punched him.

Nathan Ford:
Yeah, you know, it's all aboveboard. It's- it's perfectly legit. You know, I think really the best thing you can do would be to go back to the hotel, clean up and everything, and I'll call you in case anything happens. I promise.

Parker:
This. Looks like gum? Not gum. Diamond-edge file.

Nathan Ford:
Parker, hey yeah, yeah, that's great, that's great.

Parker:
[sotto voce] She needs this stuff!

Jim Sterling:
[taking Maggie out of the room] I'm just gonna help you with this.

Jim Sterling:
Crime suits you. You're becoming a much better liar.

Nathan Ford:
Thanks. Let's, uh, let's nail this Lundy before Maggie finds that out.
