Can anybody help me with the bold text?
The mousey gentleman turns and approaches Marvin Zuckerman, and in the pitiless, cold darkness he says, “Oh yeah, we’re good.”
Zuckerman hands over the envelope of cash, an amount he had raised, in trademark fashion, from the insurance reimbursement for the home-care expenses (after putting Allerton on the agency’s payroll).
Pausing to thumb through the bills, the mousey man says, “Correct me if I’m wrong, but we agreed on twenty K.”
“It’s short my commission,” Marvin Zuckerman explains. “Fifteen percent.”
The man in black just stares at the grief-stricken, toupee-wearing agent.

I thought we agreed on $20,000.
It's there, minus my commission.
