Make them come to you. It's a big part of the job for a covert operative, but it's never pleasant It's not so much the fear of death that bothers you, it's driving to the meet with a bag over your head. Sometimes they wash the bag, sometimes they don't. It's tough to compromise a well thought out security system, but making someone think you can compromise it, well, that's much easier.
Take surveillance cameras, for example, you can disable one by shooting a laser at it and overloading the light-sensitive chip. Cheap, easy, and exactly the sort of thing a sophisticated criminal gang, with lots of resources, would do. Leave around some tell-tale signs of surveillance like cigarette butts, a forgotten camera lens cap, and the more security there is, the more likely they are to think they've got a very serious problem.
Even the security team itself can be an opportunity. The more employees you have, the more you have to worry about. For the cost of a nice dinner, you can get a whole security team canned. That paranoia can be useful But those very systems make you predictable.
Where will you take your valuables? A bank you trust.
Michael Westen: Fiona likes to test relationships with the emotional equivalent of artillery fire.

Shoot out a few video security cameras. Block off the street with a stolen car, like they're preparing an escape route. Fire up a spark-gap transmitter to kill the security radios at the bank, and they'll really look like they know what they're doing.
Actually, I have a little errand to run first. It'll only take a second. I thought it would be fun! I got a tip about an hour ago that he's staying at the Victor. Fi, I got a feeling this guy's not gonna survive on the lam. You've been talking to Fi. If by "talking" to Fi, you mean "listening" to Fi, yeah. I know a few Iranians who are coming into town.
Ooh, let's avoid people who use "Michael Westen" and "jihad" in the same sentence. You're gonna take point on this deal. My Libyan just showed up. Fine, but from now on, no cover IDs that involve turning down twenty-year-old Scotch! I've got the FBI on my front lawn!
Well, welcome to my world. Can we do it without the head bag? He says, "It's a new job, not a new life.

Burn Notice’s Fiona kicks ass
Apparently Michael and Fiona die in the explosion. It is later shown through flashbacks that they survived. After Sam wishes luck on Michael, Jesse and Sam leave. The next scene shows what appears to be a cottage in Ireland. Fiona is seen getting hot chocolate and Charlie is asleep in Michael's lap. Michael asks Fiona what he will tell Charlie when he is older. Fiona asks about what and Michael tells her "about me" Fiona tells him to tell Charlie the truth.
Michael asks where would he start and Fiona tells him "start from the beginning. Start with 'my name is Michael Westen, I used to be a spy". Michael smiles, and he and Fiona kiss, Fiona raising Charlie as if he was her own and living happily ever after in Ireland. Sam[ edit ] At some point in the past, Sam Axe foiled an attempt by Fiona to sell a large shipment of weapons to a Libyan arms dealer, costing her a considerable sum of money. Upon being reacquainted with him in Miami, she was at first understandably very hostile towards him, often making disparaging remarks about him and belittling him for being under the thumb of the Feds.
After working together on several jobs, she began to mellow towards Sam and even admitted that she admired the loyalty that he displayed for his friends. Sam has been known to ask Fiona for advice regarding his relationships with women. Though she and Sam will occasionally be rivals for Michael's attention, there is no real hostility between them anymore; and they now share a committed, if antagonistic, friendship.
Though neither likes to admit it, they work well as a team, as Michael has pointed out. They have also demonstrated a willingness to risk life and limb for one another, as Fiona helped Michael rescue Sam from a vicious drug lord at the end of Season 1; and Sam likewise helped Michael save Fiona from O'Neill's clutches.
Sam confessed that he felt sad when he thought Fiona would be returning to Ireland. The two of them will still trade barbs, though their verbal sparring now takes the form of playful teasing.
