Sabina walks into the lab and pulls off her jacket, Tony is already sat there and gives her a quick tiny smile, she rolls her eyes but doesn't push him, it won't help, he's a Stark, way too stubborn for their own good.

"Hello?" she sits next to Tony as he calls Happy.

"Is this forehead of Security?" she asks amused, Tony smirks and shakes his head.

"What? You know, look, I got a real job. What do you want? I'm working, I got something going on here"

"What? Harassing interns?"

"Let me tell you something, you know what happened when I told people I was Iron Man's body guard? They would laugh in my face" Tony laughs. "I had to leave while I still had a shred of dignity. Now I got a real job, I'm watching Pepper"

"What's going on? Fill us in"

"For real?"

"Yeah"

"Alright, so she's meeting up with this scientist. Rich guy, handsome"

"Right"

"I couldn't make his face at first, right? You know I'm good with faces" Tony shoots Sabina a look.

"Oh, Yeah, yeah. You're the best"

"Yeah. Well, so I run his credentials, I make him Aldrich Killian. We actually met the guy back in... where were we in '99? The science conference?"

"Um...Switzerland" Sabina answers.

"Right, right, exactly"

"Killian? No, I don't remember that guy"

"Of course you don't. He's not a blond with a big rack" Sabina states looking to her brother. "I think I remember him"

"Right...At first it was fine, they were talking business, but now it's like getting weird. He's showing her a big brain"

"His what?"

"Big brain, and she likes it. Here, let me show you. Hold on. See?" Happy holds his tablet up and points it towards Pepper's glass office, where Aldrich and Pepper are standing close together on the coffee table watching the 3d image of the brain, but all Tony and Sabina see is Happy pointing the tablet camera at himself. Sabina rolls her eyes as Tony sighs.

"Look at what? You watching them?"

"Happy, flip the screen and then we can get started"

"I'm not a tech genius like you two. Just...just trust me, get down down here"

"Flip the screen, then we can see what they're doing"

"I can't! I don't know how to flip the screen! Don't talk to me like that anymore. You're not my boss" As Happy is talking, Sabina uses one of Tony's small tablet to look up Aldrich and finds his photo, Tony glances to it. "Alright, I don't work for you. Now I don't trust this guy. He's got another guy with him, he's shifty"

"Relax"

"Seriously?"

"I'm just asking you to secure the perimeter. Tell him to go out for a drink or something?"

"You know what? You should take more of an interest in what's going on here. This woman... this woman's the best thing that ever happened to you, and you...you're just ignoring her"

"A giant brain?"

"Yeah, there's a giant brain, there's a shifty character. I'm gonna follow this guy. I'm gonna run his plates and if it gets rough, so be it"
