Meanwhile, Kai is busy devouring Butchie's tonsils. Oh, lord, I don't even want to think about Butchie's probable tooth decay owing to heroin-related dry mouth, or how it would make his breath smell or taste. Anyway, something catches Kai's attention, and she hops down. Butchie gallantly apologizes, "I haven't been high in three days. I'll get hard over mud." Both of these geniuses miss the fact that Butchie's gone three straight days without getting dope sick, and Kai overlooks the fact that, by the property of transference, Butchie's equated her charms with those of a hog wallow. Instead, she invites him to her place. Bill interrupts the moment by knocking. Butchie hollers through the door, "We just completed our quadrants." He opens it, and Bill shares the news that John's safe. Then he casts his eyes down, as is his wont, and blurts out, "My God, you have an erection. He's right outside. Jesus Christ!" Bill hastily sees himself out. Butchie heads back over to Kai and coos romantically, "I wanna bring the hammer down back at your place." Kai asks, "What if it's now or never?" Both of them agree that they'll do a drive-by check up on John, then hit the sheets at Kai's place. But before they head out, Butchie fiddles with his jeans, saying, "Let me just fix this unsightly bulge."
Back outside, Dr. Smith and John are staring silently at one another. Bill heads over to talk to Freddy some more. There's some spitting and hissing since, as retired cop and drug dealer, these two are antagonists. John tells Dr. Smith, "Bill's not Freddy's first 'Bill.'" He pivots around, the better to observe the verbal ping-pong match. A few back-and-forths later, John tells Dr. Smith, "Freddy's not Bill's first 'Freddy.'" John then pivots ninety degrees. After a moment, Dr. Smith does too. They watch Kai and Butchie exit Butchie's place. In a warm and reassuring voice, John says, "You're in the right place, Doc." Dr. Smith looks at him and replies, with sardonic amusement, "So you say." John adds, "Tomorrow is another day." Well, fiddle-dee-dee.
