O.K. Corral. Deputy Ass Hat is convinced that Quantum is in league with the Skags, since there are old stories about the Skags being able to move through air. Sheriff John Brown calls him a horse's ass, but Deputy Ass Hat mulls over who Quantum was talking to on "that little box he had" and decides it was the Skags. All this convinces Deputy Ass Hat that the Skags are trying to take over again, and it's time to put an end to all of it. Sheriff John Brown asks what he has in mind. "I say we ride out there tonight and burn them out. I guarantee you there will be plenny of volunteers," Deputy Ass Hat says. Sheriff John Brown tells him he's going to do no such thing. If there's proof that the Skags are up to something, the sheriff says he'll take care of it himself. Deputy Ass Hat drawls that the sheriff's always been too soft on the Skags. "And you've always harassed them while I looked the other way. And that's going to change, right now. As long as you work for me, our job is to enforce the law -- understood?" Sheriff John Brown asks. "Understood," Deputy Ass Hat tells him, takes off his deputy asshat badge, and drops it. Too bad. Now he's just Ass Hat.
Enterprise. Hoshi staved off boredom by translating the info from the destroyed Skag ship, and says that what Homespun told Quantum was basically true. The Skags brought the humans to the planet as a workforce for a colony they were trying to establish. However, there are many reports of disciplinary problems, and six months after they got to the planet, the logs end. "They kidnapped the wrong people," Quantum bites out. Oh, calm down. Now that you're back in uniform, you're back to being a moralistic, self-righteous jerk, aren't you? Breaking my heart, you are. You tease me with your seductive duster and dirty hat, and then you take it all away as soon as you pull your jumpsuit back on. Trip wonders what they do next, because they can't just leave the humans there. May-Gone-In-Sixty-Seconds says they can't transport six thousand humans back to Earth either, and then goes to wash his mouth out with soap after befouling it with a line. Quantum decides that when they've taken care of the Xindi, they'll come back for these folks. "For now, they deserve to know that Earth hasn't abandoned them," Quantum finishes.
A sh'pod lands at the O.K. Corral. It's all very dramatic with the dust boiling and the people staring. Quantum, T'Pol, Reed, and two Uh-Ohs disembark. "We need to talk," Quantum tells Sheriff John Brown, who nods.
