Mickie Potatoes: "Alright Tommy, here’s what we’re going to do: Meet me tonight at midnight in Central Park near the broken wall. I know a guy who’s knowledgeable about these things. I’ll give him a call and see if he can meet us there."

Mysterious character: [via phone] "Afternoon Detective. What do you need?"

Mysterious character: [via phone] "What kind?"
Mickie Potatoes: "We need to meet tonight: equipment to be inspected."
Mysterious character: [via phone] "Done. You know the cost."
Mickie Potatoes: "Add it to my tab."
