Inside the tent, Tanya is looking at Ray's ad. "Big Donnie will give you every inch of his love." She asks why he's showing this to her. He tells her this is his ad. She gave him the idea. "To be a man whore? Ray, that's disgusting!" Ray reminds her that she's 40 ("I'm 38!") and has no job or kids -- she shouldn't be so insulting. She asks him how the ad has worked for him and he tells her about what happened that day. Tanya starts laughing when he tells her that the woman changed her mind after looking at him. She says that "Big Donnie" is the wrong persona. He needs to sell himself better. Also, he needs to include a picture of himself. Ray says that he put a picture of himself on the website, but she meant a picture of his face. He freaks out and says that he is a "highly-respected educator" and no one can know his identity. She excitedly tells him that, when he missed the class on creative marketing, he didn't learn all of the myriad ways one can sell oneself. She says that she'll help him, when she's not working on Lyric Bread. For a percentage of his profits. Like a...pimp? Yes. It looks like they have an agreement. Hmm. Interesting. So, Tanya's a pro-sex lady. Doesn't exactly mesh with her super-sappy center, but it's believable. Perhaps Ray got to her with the comments about her age and status. Maybe pimping was her real winning tool?
The next day, Ray drives by the venue where a bunch of Goth kids are waiting in line. He finds Damon in the line and calls out for him. Damon seems kind of embarrassed and asks Ray what he wants. Ray is all upbeat and notes that Damon got a good place in line. He pulls the 50 he got from his cancellation and gives it to Damon. He says that he doesn't need it because he got money from Ronnie, but Ray says that he should use Ronnie's money for something else. "This is for Godhead." He takes the money and rejoins his friends. Ray VO's that, though it may sound strange, he felt good for the first time in years. As the screen fades to black, we hear the soul classic "Am I A Good Man" by Them Two. That question might get harder to answer.
