ROSIE & THE RITZ
A dude shows Rosie to her room on the track, because apparently they keep a barracks for the jockeys. I never thought about that, but it makes sense. She also gets a mute valet they call Marcel.
Later, Rosie prays Paternosters for a million years while putting on her gear, because that happens on this show every week: The jockeys pray, and they get dressed. I am still no closer to understanding why we have to watch this for ten minutes each week, but maybe if you've never gotten dressed before it would supply you a handy slow-motion tutorial on how exactly to go about doing that.
MORE HORSES RUNNING IN A CIRCLE
At first it seems like Gettin' Up Morning is not going to win the race, but then he wins the race. It is about half the episode, in slow-motion, of people watching this happen -- also Leon jogs, and Ronnie broods, but mostly it's just wide-eyed applause and this horse running in a circle -- while intense music plays.
Everybody: Has sixteen orgasms.
Wheels: "Well, now that that's over, we have two problems. Number one, I still want to find Jerry. Number two, it's possible that my infinite number of health problems is kicking in."
Claire: "I'm back with those budgets! I also put a note in there for you. A special private one."

ON THE ROAD
Twitch Is: Driving the van, worrying about Wheels's impending heart attack, and also trying to figure out where Jerry is.
Wheels Is: Bitching.
Lonnie Is: Doing his usual thing of not doing anything.
Eventually they Find out from the people at the casino that Naomi and Jerry are at a private game at Chan's, and Wheels confirms that Chan is going to kill everybody eventually.
TINY PEOPLE NEED LOVE TOO
Leon and Rosie climb all over each other in bed, talking in their various incomprehensible ways about jockey lore and how she rode a horse this one time for a bajillion years. They are some healthy little monkeys.
JILL HENNESSEY, MEDICINE WOMAN
Jo and the Old Man have a frank talk about horse nostrils. The Old Man is very worried about the health of GUM, because he is still -- I don't know if you picked up on this -- a little broken up about His Daddy And How They Killed Him. It's like his main thing of life.
