Latimer hires Jimmy Ford (Tom Skerritt) to break into the U.S. Patent Office after Nate refuses the job. During the weekend Jimmy gets inside, he supposedly loses contact with Latimer, causing the latter to issue dire prognostications to Nate. Worried about Jimmy, Nate goes to D.C.; and the team follows him. Jimmy must weed through nearly 423,000 patent applications to find the one Latimer wants. Various law enforcement agencies force some interesting exits; and Jimmy has the coolest one. Latimer threatened to murder Nate; this is why he took the job. Will this be Jimmy Ford's last job? Is Eliot right: is someone other than Latimer messing with Nate's head? Written by

What, are you too rich to wait until morning to talk to me?
I wouldn't have called if it wasn't urgent.
If this is about that job you asked me to do, I think I told you what you could do with it.
