Downstairs, the Bella Union has another visitor. Andy Cramed strolls in with a look of determination. Eddie, with his boss behind the cashier's cage, nudges Cy into awareness. Cy is taken aback, but tries to smoothly greet Andy, as if he didn't recently dump him in the woods like a sack of trash. "Lazarus risen," Cy says, all smiles. "Look at you, you son of a gun!" Nice try, Cy, but Andy ain't going for it. He tells Eddie not to be afraid to shake hands, as he is no longer contagious, and tells Cy he's only come back for his belongings. Cy hems and haws -- the belongings were destroyed, he says. "Measures to stop the spread." He pulls out a wad of cash saying they should "get something going," and that he'll front Andy whatever he needs. "We ain't getting' nothing goin'," he continues, as Joanie walks up. "All I come back for, Cy, was my things, and you tossed them, too."
Like a true sociopath, Cy is offended that Andy is offended that Cy...dumped him in the woods like a sack of trash and left him for dead. He waves the money at Andy again, telling him to take it to buy new clothes and whatever. "And once you've cooled off a little," he says, "think how you'd have done different if somebody showed up in the shape you was in and my responsibilities to meet." Andy says he figures he'd have done better than to throw someone in the woods to fuckin' die. Cy is offended, anew. Fine, then. He tells Andy to not think about anything, in that case, and to take the money to get a whore and some drugs "and go join the fuckin' circus." Andy says no more as Cy shoves the money in his shirt, merely looking at Eddie with a smirk and walking away. Cy doesn't miss a beat, looking over to Joanie. "Did you turn her out?" he asks about Flora. Joanie nods, but says that Flora's brother might be a problem. "Fuck her brother," Cy says, super-evil. "We'll handle the brother, if we have to kill the cocksucker." Glancing up to where the girl is waiting, he raises his eyebrows at Joanie. "That's an interesting piece of strange," he says with significance, and walks away, leaving Joanie and Eddie to shudder as if they had just been in conference with the devil.
