Bill's still rolling his eyes when he slides Joanie a twenty-dollar tip, thanking her for her service. "Any idea for the rest?" she asks, suggesting service of a different kind. He says he believes he'll stay with cash, and heads out. Aw. It's heartwarming to think he's staying faithful to his new wife or something, until you see him wandering down the street to meet up with his man-crush, Seth Bullock. Too worn out to clench, Bullock is still working on the erection (oh...haaaa!) of his store, alone and in the cool of the evening. They exchange the pleasantries of two men who are clearly forming a mutual admiration society, and Bill asks if Bullock's all right with the nickname he's given him: "Montana." If that doesn't give y'all the gay vibe, I don't know what will. Anyway, Bullock says that he's fine with it, seeing as how the only other nickname he's ever had was "Sloth." (Except for "Clench," which he doesn't know that all of us have calling him behind his back. Shh!) Bill says "Sloth" doesn't quite seem to fit him, and as Bullock raises yet another beam in the store frame, it's difficult not to agree. "Choice was among the seven sins," Bullock explains. "Guess I got out before the others surfaced."
I like Timothy Olyphant and Keith Carradine together. Both of these roles are so macho-good-guy-misunderstood-hero...seeing them together somehow balances them both out to a manageable level.
