>> after being handed his walking papers, aka, his burn notice , jeffrey's character can't seem to stay out of the game. which has his mother very worried about her little boy . take a look.
>> you could blow my cover.
>> i'm so sorry, michael. you got to talk to sam and jesse.
>> i can't talk to anyone else.
>> why did i get a private call.
>> because you're calling people about me and you have to stop.
>> i just wanted to know if you were alive. is that too much to ask?
>> yes, it's too much to ask. you can't call, you can't write, you have to wait for me to come back.
>> and i thought cody and i had problems. it makes me feel so much better.
>> i felt very bad yelling at each other. it's sharon gless .
>> she's an actress who can take it.
>> i love her so much.
>> we have to talk about the little one, first.
>> can you show us a picture?
>> oh! we were dying.
>> she's seven months. and --
>> has she changed her life?
>> i have a saying, she fortifies your life. it's an amazing feeling. that you, she's completely dependant upon you and -- my wife michelle. but i was just saying, you put her down and in the first month, they don't move, really. second month, they kind of like. well now i put her down and i turn and whoops, you're gone. you've gotten off the table and are making me breakfast.
>> it does seem like that, that fast.
>> does this make the end, this is the last season of " burn notice " and it's been a long-running series. does it make it kind of bittersweet in a way, i guess?
>> it's bittersweet. we also knew that there was going to be, it had to be an end to this show. because " burn notice " is about a spy who gets fired. eventually he has to get reinstated or --
>> he can't have a pink slip the entire series. so the end of the series will be 111 shows and the longest-running matching " miami vice " in florida.
>> didn't you direct the 100th episode?
>> yes. that clip was from the 100th episode.
>> that wasn't the first time you directed an episode?

>> you know everybody --
>> you don't want to let anybody down.
>> and did you?
