Even doped up, she can feel that he got taken, and when she finds out he went all the way to twenty thousand, she merely sighs and says, "Oh, well." We find out Brom has serious Daddy issues when he huffs out that the bank will no doubt contact "Father" when he writes to renew his line of credit.
Finally, in the next, dialogue-free scene, we meet the much lauded Mr. Wu and his pigs, as the Doc looks on to see the Chinaman dumping the dead john into the sty. The pigs...eat him. Soylent Green is people, y'all.
Back at the Gem, Al is hounding Driscoll over taking Garret all the way to twenty thousand. He's mad about it -- he doesn't want to pay Driscoll his percentage of the money, even the percentage of the $14,000 they originally agreed on. This sends Driscoll into a rant about how when times get hard, the English in Al really comes out. It's hilarious. "Fucking toime of trial, the fucking Anglish in you come out. Fine!" He agrees to take "foive hundred" credit at the gambling tables now and talk about the rest later, and Al continues to turn the screws, asking him if they're holding markers on him. This sets Driscoll off again. "Jaysus. You're holding markers all right. You've been holding markers against me and my kind for the past several centuries across both sides of the foikin' water!" Tim Driscoll, early representative of the IRA. He ends up getting twenty dollars off Al, and leaves as E.B. slimes to Al about how he couldn't believe Driscoll took Garret to twenty thousand.
In Bullock and Sol's hardware tent, the salesmen are making arrangements with a reverend in town to sit with their merchandise for a few hours while they get some supper. They learn that Reverend Smith, who is awfully sweet, is saving money to bring his family out by working a farm during the day and watching folks' goods at night. "And then," he adds, "Sabbaths, I preach Christ crucified and raised from the dead." The friends share a look, before changing the subject. We learn that Bullock is from Ontario (note to Wing Chun: are all Canadian men quite this hot? If so, prepare guest room), and Sol was born in Austria, and raised in Ohio. The two of them met up in Montana and have been in love -- I MEAN -- best friends ever since. Reverend Smith: "The Lord is our final comfort, but it's a solace having friends. I know that from past experience." Truer words have never been spoken. I found this scene to be quite touching. This pilot episode has introduced us to a few sets of friends, now, and this ties it together nicely.
