Over the past decade, a majority of black-market dealers stopped trading in cash. Agent Kramer was my mentor at Quantico. And you know this how? Which means all I have to do is scream and New York closes in to take you down. The tie drawer's a nice touch. We know exactly where he is. Oh, Neal and I were, uh Well, what were we doing here? Agent Matthews isn't with him. What do you have in mind? He doesn't own any other property in the city, and he loves to look at his art, so it's a good bet this is where he's keeping the Degas.
Or the feds will take me down? Locate the Degas and get it back. I don't think he's going anywhere. How many do you have? Why don't we take this into the conference room? This could take a second. The elevators are mine, Neal. Hey, our closure rate is unprecedented. Don't jump to any conclusions.
All right, I'll take left, you take right? I assume you're here about the Degas? Pete You asked me for my help. Get us up or get us down. In fact, the hardest thing to do is admit you're wrong, like I seemed to be about Neal. You know that better than anyone. It takes time to initialize. You can imagine that, right, Neal? Well, today you had a room full of people ready to go after that painting, and you looked at only one man.
Peter reluctantly accepts, on the condition that Neal abandons his search for Kate and wears a tracking anklet. Question is, how do you fence it? There's nothing more to find today. You all know Agent Kramer from D. It hasn't been seen since. No one here can be trusted.
Neal, rumor is you've had some experience in this payment process. No one ever talks anymore. We're all over major transportation centers. Let's say that you're in possession of a masterpiece that disappeared 70 years ago. This is consistent with the period where his dark palette gave way to bold colors.
Obviously I can't test it here. I'll tell you what -- you bring me a gross, and you've got yourself a deal. These micro-cracks are slightly immature for a work that's supposed to be over a hundred years old. You've looked as hard as you can. Rusty, stay where you are! Is that what you've been doing for the last hour? My entire job is dependent on me not telling you that information.
Yeah, that was an interesting one. It was impressive watching you work. Instead of carrying duffel bags with millions in bank notes -- it's easier to trade a single piece of art worth the same amount. Melissa, working with Peter has been one of the best things that's ever happened to me. Then that's who we'll go after. Not long, but I needed to buy some time, and it was the only play I had. He's got a soft spot for impressionists.
Rusty We need to talk about a man and a Degas. I've never known you to pass up a good Bordeaux. Why is there a giant hourglass on my table? You already have a new piece to sell? That's all it's gonna buy you. I'm rebooting the system, ma'am. Melissa, if you'd be so kind.
