Lone Star State of Mind
Bob asks what to do about his wife Cat. John says that she's the mark and not his real family. Cat's just the foothold into the corporation and John is the only person Bob can trust. Poor Bob, he's like little baby Sawyer from Lost, a con man who almost occasionally tries to do right... well, except hopefully Bob's mother met a kinder fate. John moves on to trying to figure out how to put off the guy who wants to see the well, and plot how to get big bucks from big oil. Bob looks like he wants to cry, but instead he smirks as he goes outside to call and accept the job.
Next thing we know Bob is back to conning. He's out at a well site and introduces himself as Ted Lanford, a location scout who is looking to show a director a potential movie site. He slips the man in charge a hundred for the trouble. And then he's in his car filling up a suitcase with wads of cash. He's got his hard hat and the briefcase, and the guy who wants to see the well. John's pretending to be the foreman and they show them around the fake movie site well. There are even some fake blueprints to show Larry with the cowboy hat, who is still quite skeptical... well, until Bob turns on the charm about how he'd rather buy out the sale and earn Larry's trust and friendship instead, and offers him the briefcase of cash. Larry tells him to keep the cash, and says that he's happy and would like to buy two more shares and he's off to get his checkbook. After Larry walks away John compliments him on his moves and says he's really the best con artist he's ever seen. Though he looks pissed to find out that Bob is heading back to Midland, even though that place has been "milked dry" and the clock is ticking out there.
