Richmond Farm. Mimi -- ever-thorough, ever-anal Mimi -- pores over Stanley's contract with J&R. She grabs Stanley as he passes through to take a shower and says, "Tell me you didn't sign this contract." Stanley squints down and dumbs, "I didn't sign that contract." Mimi sighs, relieved. "Yeah, I signed the other one -- that's a copy," Stanley finishes. Not good. Mimi asks whether Stanley even read the contract. Yes, he did. It says he gets his farm back. That's not all it says, Mimi explains: "First of all, you owe them a share of your crop, starting immediately, but you won't be credited for three years until -- you see? -- 'a national monetary system is reinstated by the federal government, and an exchange rate can be established.'" Stanley still doesn't get it. Mimi explains that it could take ages before the economy rights itself, and all that time, Stanley is handing over his crop. "No, I give them my crop for a while and them I'm out of debt, right?" Stanley says. Why are Stanley's lips so freakishly purple? Does he still have frostbite? "That's how you got into debt in the first place," Mimi explains, laughing in frustration. Stanley gets annoyed: "I'm not stupid." He walks off. I love how he worked off that line in a Nixonian "I am not a crook" delivery.
