Lydia Rodarte-Quayle: You'll receive a paycheck from Madrigal in the amount of $10,000 per week. I believe at that rate, your "employment" should be paid out in about 20 weeks. Mr. Fring has arranged to cover FICA, Social Security the entirety of the tax burden. I assume that's all right with you?
Lydia: So, to that end, I have you down as a "logistics consultant."
Mike: What is that?
Lydia: It's a person who consults on logistics. Does it matter?
Mike: I'm not long on logistics. "Security consultant" would be better. I used to be a cop.
Lydia: That will look better on your "work history" than your current employer, SMQ Parking.
Mike: So, you take my money, you run it through this joint, and it comes out clean. That it?
Mike: Who knows this operation? You anyone else?
Mike: You sure?
Lydia: May I ask, what precisely is your concern here?
Mike: I am concerned about what happens if you put my real name in your books. Your Madrigal is a German company. One thing I know about Germans is they love a good audit.
Lydia: I oversee eight freight terminals across Texas and the Southwest. Operating costs range between $800,000 and a million dollars per week. All due respect, Mike, but your money? It's a rounding error. If the IRS or anyone else looks, you're a contractor for a multinational corporation with 114,000 employees worldwide. You're like every other person in this building.
Mike: Like you?
Lydia: You think I'm not on the books? I am. Under my own name.
Mike: This the way you handled it before?
Lydia: Handled what?
Mike: The money. For Fring's other guys.
Lydia: Other guys? This is the first time I've done this for anyone. I don't know what you do, but Mr. Fring must think you're quite good at it.
