Meanwhile, Gillian has to finesse her way past a crowd of leering a-holes in order to bring Tommy his lunch on a tray. (The lunch, by the way -- ham on white break, a dill pickle, and some Oreos -- sounds heavenly.) But Tommy is hiding in his little tipi bed fort, obviously angry that Richard has been sent away. She offers to come into the tipi and eat with him, but he stonewalls her. Rejected, she doesn't press it and tells him she understands. Well, now it's official: everyone in the Maison Derriere is sad. Seems like such a waste of a brothel.
Back in the lumber yard, Nucky and Eli Thompson take the occasion of fixing a broken-down car to talk about old times and solidify their repaired relationship. Not in anything close to those terms, of course. Nucky asks if Eli got June and the kids to someplace safe (he did) and Eli asks the same of Margaret and her kids (Nucky declines to comment). They light up cigs and begin to muse about the State of Things. "We didn't stop while the going was good," Nucky muses. "I never told 'em to pass the 18th Amendment," is Eli's missing-the-point reply. Nucky wonders what it's really gotten them, but Eli says that's to worry about once Rosetti is in the ground. Nucky is pretty pessimistic about what happens after that. Eli seems to think they can get the town running again, but Nucky's like, "You're never going to be the sheriff again." Eli, reverting back to old form, takes offense, but Nucky simply means that neither of them will ever be back in power. He anticipates that he's going to be damaged goods, business-wise. Eli tries to reassure him that he can make it back. "Just offer them something they want." Nucky doesn't know how. Eli: "You're the man with all the angles."
In New York, Arnold Rothstein gets a most unwelcome call from Mickey Doyle. Mickey plays coy about being at sea "over here," and Rothstein humors him the exact minimum amount. Mickey's all, "Three words: Overholt. Distillery. Pennsylvania." He continues that a "certain person that we both know" made an arrangement with "another certain person" (oh, Jesus, Doyle, OUT WITH IT) to run it for him. This first person, says Mickey, would probably be willing to give up just about anything to keep from losing everything. Rothstein? Is listening.
