"Charlie," the shorter man pushed away from the glow of the computer screen, an expression of exaggerated patience on his face. "Who got you through the security system in Florence? The electric grid in Madrid? The DMV
If I'm saying uh-oh
"It's time to call in the reinforcements, yeah, I got it. But this is the big one Lyle, we don't wanna bring in anyone who might…" Charlie grimaced, running a hand over his face. Turning back towards his longtime friend and partner in crimes that were far more literal than they were metaphoric, his expression transformed into the serious, intent mien that made him someone people wanted to trust: "We don't want this to end up like the Italian job."

So it was a bit of a high-strung crowd that awaited Lyle's reappearance. The flight had landed at two, and even allotting for the time required to pick up the luggage and travel back, their computer expert and his guest should have been back a few hours ago.
At last they heard the sounds of a car, and then voices. Two people came into view, backlit by the open door so their features were obscured. Handsome Rob was the first to see, and recognize, the second man.
He looked from Lyle, to the identical man – save for the dark blue hair – and back again:
"Bloody hell, there're two
A/N2: So... in case you didn't know, Lyle from "The Italian Job" is played by Seth Green. So, using the wonderful wand of crossover, I made them twins! Like, love, loathe? Lemme know!
