Out in the Strikes parking lot, Ed pulls up and sees Lloyd stuffing things into the trunk of his car. Ed surprises him and asks what he's doing. Lloyd says he's got a friend, Bucky, in Vegas, who's started a chain of restaurants called Buffalo Burgers, made with buffalo meat (which has half the fat of regular beef). Lloyd's going to go out to Vegas and be on the ground floor of this great opportunity, and it's something he can't pass up, can he, Ed? Ed smiles and says that, no, Lloyd can't pass this up. Lloyd says the timing's wrong with the bowling alley. Lloyd says that once he gets things going with Bucky, he'll come back and pick up where he left off at Strikes. Ed says okay, knowing full well that Lloyd won't do it. Lloyd says he's serious, a few months, tops, and he'll be back to help him. Ed says okay. They stand there and Ed pulls out a wad of cash and hands it to Lloyd. Lloyd says there's no way he can accept cash from his little brother, but before Lloyd can finish the sentence, he snatches the cash out of Ed's hand. Ed tells Lloyd that he's good at things. Lloyd just stands there, and they finally hug. Lloyd says he's probably going to stop and see the Grand Canyon on his way out to Las Vegas, because no matter how big you are, everyone's tiny at the Grand Canyon. He gets in his car and yells, "You have got to love the open road!" and pulls out of the parking lot, and Ed's life, for the time being. Dammit. Two sentimental, warm, tender scenes back to back. These sons of bitches. I feel like I'm watching Lifetime or something.
All in all, a good episode...much better the second time around with nuggets strewn throughout reminding us why Ed really is one of the better shows on television today.
