Lucious explains, "Because they only asked for $40,000. If this was some long term...or they were planning to hurt him or kill him..."
"Don't say that," says Cookie. Lucious points out that it is a simple snatch-and-grab, but Cookie maintains that there is no snatch-and-grab at the place where they come from. "But things have changed, nobody gets a body these days," explains Lucious, and promises Cookie that, "No matter what happens we are going to get our boy back."
Cookie then gets a call from the kidnapper and she says, "We got the money. We are at the drop-off." Lucious snatches the phone away and tells the kidnapper, "Before we go any further, I wanna know there is proof of life, proof that he is okay."
