MORE HORSES RUNNING IN A CIRCLE
At first it seems like Gettin' Up Morning is not going to win the race, but then he wins the race. It is about half the episode, in slow-motion, of people watching this happen -- also Leon jogs, and Ronnie broods, but mostly it's just wide-eyed applause and this horse running in a circle -- while intense music plays.
Everybody: Has sixteen orgasms.
Wheels: "Well, now that that's over, we have two problems. Number one, I still want to find Jerry. Number two, it's possible that my infinite number of health problems is kicking in."
Claire: "I'm back with those budgets! I also put a note in there for you. A special private one."

I am secretly gay with Dennis Farina
ON THE ROAD
Twitch Is: Driving the van, worrying about Wheels's impending heart attack, and also trying to figure out where Jerry is.
Wheels Is: Bitching.
Lonnie Is: Doing his usual thing of not doing anything.
Eventually they Find out from the people at the casino that Naomi and Jerry are at a private game at Chan's, and Wheels confirms that Chan is going to kill everybody eventually.
TINY PEOPLE NEED LOVE TOO
Leon and Rosie climb all over each other in bed, talking in their various incomprehensible ways about jockey lore and how she rode a horse this one time for a bajillion years. They are some healthy little monkeys.
JILL HENNESSEY, MEDICINE WOMAN
Jo and the Old Man have a frank talk about horse nostrils. The Old Man is very worried about the health of GUM, because he is still -- I don't know if you picked up on this -- a little broken up about His Daddy And How They Killed Him. It's like his main thing of life.
If I had a horse, I would name him Martin Horsese.
BEING MEAN TO NATHAN ISRAEL
Nathan Israel: "The thing about subprime mortgages is, don't buy things you can't afford."
Ace: "By objecting to that common-sense statement, my character development as a self-righteous prig and hypocrite is complete. This show wants me to be a sort of anti-hero who is complex and corrupt but also pure, but because I am unerringly a huge twat about everything, mostly it's just really gross to watch."
Nathan Israel: "Do you have some more degrading me to do, so that you don't feel so bad about your old flaccid penis?"
Ace: "As a matter of fact, we do!"
Nathan Israel: "This whole situation is going to blow up in your face. But I'm probably still dead meat."
