Danny VOs some more about how scary and macho Big Ed is. Big Ed blusters, "Our surveillance system detected a weapon in here, Delinda." Delinda? Delinda Devine? Was Mrs. Big Ed whacked out on the epidural when she named her kid? Anyway, Delinda giggles, "Well, he did have a weapon, Daddy. Just not the kind you're thinking." This is what's known as pouring soothing oil on...well, not so much troubled waters as already-flaming gasoline.
We find out Delinda's supposed to be studying in Europe, but since she looks like she should have graduated from college and exhausted the patience of her post-graduate advisors over the seven years you're given to get a doctorate, we can only assume she's been doing some comparative anatomy studies without benefit of peer review. We also find out Delinda's been in Vegas for a few days, and while this is news to Big Ed, his wife has known for some time. Unfortunately, we don't find out why his wife didn't drop this bit of news on him. I guess it would have made this episode a lot less contrived, and God forbid that should happen.
As Big Ed lumbers up the stairs so that he may contemplate the wreckage of his family somewhere other than his daughter's den of iniquity, she sing-songs, "I love you!" He shows her the hand. She grins, and then calls to Danny, "You can come out now." Something tells me that the little passion play we just saw takes place about as often as Days of Thunder shows up on TNT. Danny comes padding out with his tie, shoes, and socks in his hand. He dazedly asks, "Why didn't you tell me Big Ed was your father?" Delinda responds, "What fun would that be?" Dannny blusters, "You intentionally deceived me because you thought it would be fun." Delinda loops Danny's tie around his neck as she cheerfully confirms this. Maybe Danny can go from zero to Bible in sixty seconds and begin screaming, "Delilah! O, traitorous wench!"
Or maybe not, since Delinda has attached herself, remora-like, to his mouth. Danny breaks free before she can suck his soul out. He makes like he's about to leave, a process that's given some urgency when Big Ed's pet goon barks from the balcony that Big Ed wants to see Danny. The goon then melts in the presence of Delinda's sunny smile, especially after she's all, "Paulie, you lost weight." Why are all fat men named Paulie or Bobby? We find out Paulie's on the Zone.
We also find out Paulie's got a mouth on him: "You wake up this morning and take a stupid pill, kid? You must be on some kind of drug to pull a stunt like this."
