Two small time crooks are also enjoying a meal, and in a sudden moment of inspiration decide to rob the diner. Confronting Phillip, they demand his wallet and that he attempt to open a briefcase belonging to a gentleman who looks similar to Jules from the movie Pulp Fiction. “Jules” decides that he will have none of that and opens fire on the two hooligans. Phillip dives away from the gunfight, swiping the briefcase, taking a few shots which seem to have absolutely no effect on him, and runs through the kitchen with “Jules” in pursuit. Attempting to make his escape, he nearly bumps back into “Jules” in the lobby before running out a fire escape and making his way from the scene. He returns to Eva’s apartment and carefully opens the case, finding some money, car keys, a pillow and blanket, and something that growls. Ivy, Phillip’s geist advises him to close the briefcase, which Phillip does and prepares to retire for the night.
