Marcelo in the Real World Chapter 20 Summary
Back at the office, Juliet confronts Marcelo about how long his doctor's appointment was.
Marcelo doesn't know what she's talking about at first, but then remembers: he lied and said that's where he was going.
Lying, Marcelo realizes, takes a lot of concentration. Preach.
Wendell's in his office and scolds Marcelo for not doing better work. He needs Marcelo to run an errand for him.
And of course this errand is super shady. He wants Marcelo to go to Robert Steely's house and get him to sign a letter acknowledging he's been fired and agreeing not to take action against the firm.
Juliet calls Marcelo a cab despite Marcelo asking her to get a messenger, and he's on his way to Steely's.
To Marcelo's surprise, Steely lives in a neighborhood where the houses are closer together (read: not as nice) as his own.
Marcelo sees a piano inside Steely's house, which makes him remember Jasmine telling him that the right note will sound right.
He takes it as a sign and asks Steely if the firm knew about the windshields. Then he shows Steely the picture of Ixtel.
Steely tells Marcelo that even though it's not right, it's Arturo's job to defend corporations, so there was no way he could settle out of court with Garcia.
Although Steely can't really get involved, he tells Marcelo there's a 36th box of Vidromek files. Marcelo only has 35.
Steely wishes him luck.
Back at the office, Marcelo tells Jasmine that the 36th box must contain a document saying Vidromek knew about the windshields.
Jasmine agrees to look for the box that night, then walks Marcelo to the subway once again.
