Cy comes downstairs at the Bella Union to find Wyatt playing craps at Leon's table. Seeing an opportunity to schmooze with what he perceives to be potential new muscle that he can provide for Hearst, he oozes over to the table and lays it on thick. "Elrod Eulaham from Galena, Illinois," he says, faking a familiarity out so that he can learn the new guy's real identity. Dude -- Elrod Eulaham? Has there ever been a better name -- I mean, besides Engelbert Humperdinck? That is awesome. Wyatt is having a hard turn at the craps table, but Cy brushes it off, continuing his ploy to get in the good graces of the new guy. He makes a big show of thanking him for knocking out the road agents, but Wyatt demurs beneath his mustache, saying it wasn't anything special and going on to tell about the timber lease he's come to work with his brother. "...a timber lease," Cy chuckles. "I guess you're even more a hero, guns being out of your line." Wyatt must have forgotten the little talk he just had with Al. "I didn't call them a fully foreign subject, now," he says, smirking, and this is just what Cy wanted to hear. When he craps out and Leon goes to take his chips, Cy stops the dealer. "Pay the man, Leon," he says. Wyatt is confused. "But I didn't make my point," he says. Waggling his eyebrows, Cy says: "You did to me." Haaa! Are you kidding me? The writers of Deadwood are resorting to puns now? Wait -- did I fall asleep and wake up during a Gilmore Girls recap? That's happened before.
