The chief agent is explaining to Ed and Diana that the money he just dumped on the bed is for them, and he’s supposed to give it to them.
“Why?” asks Ed. “For what?”
“Someone – – ” begins the agent, “someone very important must like you.”
“Jack,” says Diana.
“There’s seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” says the agent. “Right there.”
“All this money is for us?” asks Ed. The federal agent rolls his eyes, then stuffs several stacks of bills into his own pants pockets.
“Who are you going to tell?” asks the agent. Ed and Diana look at each other.
“You’ve got twenty four hours undisturbed,” says the agent, stuffing more money in his pockets. “You’re not to leave this room. After that, you’re on your own.” He walks toward the hotel room door.
“Do we thank you, or what?” asks Ed.
“I’d say I fall into the ‘or what’ category,” replies the agent, slamming the door behind him.
The scene shifts to a car commercial.
“Here’s Cal Worthington and his dog Spot!” says the female announcer. Cal Worthington is strapped to the top of a biplane.
