Best way to manage small pieces of a 13 minute clip?

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

A client has given me some AVI footage to cut in with some of my material.
He's said 'at 13 min, 40 seconds' use 5 seconds. 'at 12 min, 10 seconds, use 8 seconds'.
There will be some fades and I'll be adding text, etc. in Motion.
What's the best way to manage this?
I'd guess cutting this long clip info small pieces out using FCP and then import them into Motion?
But, I was curious if there was a way to work completely in Motion?
Also - if I drag from the edge of a clip in motion, thus changing the part of the clip displayed, I can't really tell what the timecode is (of the original position) even when I've turned on timecode rather than frames. Which would make doing any edits by absolute timecode rather hard.
Is there a way to see the absolute timecode position in the clip after changing the parts of the clip that are displayed?

Your original idea is right on. Cut up the clip in FCP. Don't try to work with a 13-minute clip in Motion - it won't like you. Motion will probably constantly crash try to process something that big, and it will just cause headaches.
FCP will also display the absolute timecode.
