Charlie Bond

* The morning begins with, as per custom, Nick/Saul sprinting across the highway at the last possible second to catch The Vanpool. Someone has since cut the median so it is no longer a Vietnam-style jungle.

"Watching him run across the highway isn't as dramatic now that they cut the hay," says one of the semi-regulars who sits up front.

* Further down the highway, Charlie pulls one of his patented driving maneuvers -- cutting people off dramatically at the last possible second as we get off at a crowded highway exit.

"What do you call that move, Charlie," someone asks.

"James Bond," Nick/Saul says.

"More like Charlie Bond," Barbara says.

There's a pause.

"Bond. Charles Bond," she says.

No one says a word.
