Hood breaks into a car he lets Job in and Job starts to teach him how to hot-wire the car. Hood mentions the part that needs to be accessed is screwed in and Job hands him a screwdriver. Job then instructs him on which wires he needs to find and brings up his work with Mr. Rabbit. Hood tells him that he's got everything they need for more serious jobs. Job is concerned because of his reputation for killing people and his old-school ways and gives him the final step to hot-wiring the car. Hood says its only one job but Job is skeptical and asks how Rabbit even found him. Hood gives him the name of a demolitions expert named Rembrandt who Job thought had blown himself up, but Hood explains he only blew his hand off. Hood continues to work and thinks Job could do it alott faster and he agrees but continues to let him do it. Job asks why he's branching out but Hood deflects by asking what the final step is and after the car was been hot-wired Hood answers that Rabbit has a daughter. Job is outraged even as Hood tries to explain that he will keep Job out of it while he continues to lecture Hood on what a bad idea it is get involved with the boss' daughter. Hood tells him its too late and Job curses him as they exit the car.
