Oh god, we're still in the bathtub. Eddie is scrubbing himself, despite the fact that he has no soap and only a thimbleful of water. He finds a couple of gold coins at the bottom of the tub. Huh? Okay, if it were a washing machine, I'd totally believe that, but who takes exact change into the shower? I'd like to point out that we're ten minutes in here, and the boy hasn't worn clothes even once. Whoops, spoke too soon. He walks past Cleoslutra wearing a sleeveless toga and a headband that makes him look exactly like John Travolta circa Saturday Night Fever. She licks her lips. I beat my head against the floor.
Pot Brownie's office. Third Watch Eddie turns in the gold coins. Pot Brownie is impressed, but Eddie insists it doesn't prove he's honest. "Honesty is in a man's eyes," says Pot Brownie. He doesn't know how right he is. Some discussion of bad wine. Third Watch Eddie reports he saw the wine being stored in the sun, and perhaps it should be moved indoors. Let me get this straight. The Egyptians can build a Sphinx, a half-dozen or so pyramids, and enough tombs to keep Harrison Ford in a leather jacket and bullwhip for life, but they haven't mastered the wine cellar yet? This scene is apparently supposed to prove that Third Watch Eddie is pretty AND smart. His agent looks on approvingly from offstage. Pot Brownie exposits that he's Captain of the Guards for the Pharaoh himself, and doesn't have time to run his household. I don't really care about any of that, but I do know that "Changing of the Guards" is a highly underrated Bob Dylan song. Check it out if you get the chance. Blah blah Eddie-is-smart-cakes, and then Pot Brownie asks why his own brothers sold him. Eddie replies that they were jealous of him, and we finally see him in a wide shot which reveals that the sleeveless toga has a miniskirt bottom. He's got nice legs. For a twelve-year-old girl. Eddie is dismissed as Cleoslutra enters. I have to say, he's taking this whole slavery thing pretty well.
Sheep close-up. They're covered in sores. I did NOT need to see that, especially not right after the whole bare-legs fiasco. Pot Brownie babbles about how the sheep suck. Third Watch Eddie looks excited by that prospect. He gives Pot Brownie another genetics lecture. Who wrote this, Watson and Crick?
Third Watch Eddie sells the sheep. An Extra who looks like he just climbed out of Pirates of the Caribbean wants to know how Pot Brownie improved his flock so quickly. Eddie refuses to tell. I can't take my eyes off the pretty, pretty wig he's wearing in this scene. It's a shoulder length bowl-cut (if that's even possible), and it totally completes the twelve-year-old-girl look.
