Van, Eddie, and Deaq watch the rodeo on television. Eddie says that he did the rodeo circuit for three years. Van laughingly asks if he was a clown, and Eddie very seriously say that the rodeo clown has the most difficult job. Deaq looks over at Alton and Shadow, who are sitting out on the patio talking. Shadow asks Alton what's wrong. Alton says that something isn't right, and explains about his conversation with Two Tears. Shadow reminds him that there are a thousand cons in and out of Chino every day, and says that he trusts Deaqon. Shadow reminds Alton that Deaqon and Van kicked ass in the strip club. Alton smiles and walks over to invite Deaqon to stay for dinner. Deaqon says that he and Van already have plans. I think it's a date! Alton orders Deaqon to stay, since he's family. Eddie says that they can take Van out.
Aw, yeah. Molly Hatchet. "Flirting With Disaster." I feel like I'm back in high school, drinking warm, flat beer out of a plastic cup. Van, Shadow, and Eddie walk into a western bar. Van spots a mechanical bull and says that he knows Eddie is upset about the clown comment, and that he has "great respect for the whole rodeo system and their clowns." Van says that Eddie can feel free to get on the bull and prove how tough he is. Eddie says that Van is the one who will be riding the bull. Cut to Van riding the bull and then tumbling onto the mat. Eddie and Shadow pick him up and ask if he wants to do it again. Van agrees, and Eddie tells Shadow that Van is all right.
