This is taken from a story that I'm currently reading
“I’m doing this because you’re a good cop and you’re pretty, and because you’ve never cared that I’m as ugly as an old tire. None of that means I’m willing to lose my job getting you in to see this son of a bitch. Are we clear on that?” She nodded, mouth tight. “Good girl,” he said, and offered the only smile she was liable to see. “Tight on my six; humble fucking pie.”

“I’ll give you three.” Matheny stood. “He’s in the lockdown cell. All the way down on the right.” “Why is he in lockdown?” Elizabeth asked. “Why?” Matheny dropped keys on the desk. “Because fuck him, that’s why.” When he was gone, she raised an eyebrow at James Randolph, who shrugged. “It’s a pretty common sentiment around here.”

Rounding a final corner, they saw a single guard at a desk near the heavy, steel door. He looked up,and James waved an easy hand. “Matthew Matheny. How’s it hanging?” Matheny crossed his arms, looked at Elizabeth. “What’s going on, James?” “Why don’t you catch a smoke?” What does "waved an easy hand" mean? What does "Why don’t you catch a smoke" mean? Matheny looked at Elizabeth, his skin washed out in the fluorescent light. Like James, he was in his fifties and bald. Unlike James, he was thin and stooped, a mean-eyed man who, every day, seemed to hate his life a little bit more. “You know who’s in there, right? Public enemy number one.” Matheny pointed. “She may as well be public enemy number two. That makes this a big goddamn favor.”
