Charlie goes to see Gus again. Brace yourself for some scintillating discourse on the advantages of steel nails over aluminum nails. Charlie says he's made some calls and that "half our buyers said they would pull their orders if we switched to pine." Gus says to give it a rest and Charlie says he'll fight him on this. Gus says that Charlie will have a tough time fighting him when he's in Tahiti. Charlie is confused. Gus says some guys came to him with a problem, and he gave them an answer, and then they said, "Where's Charlie?" Then Gus went out and took a look at Charlie's "beautiful furniture," and realized that people will think that Gus made it happen, and that "the best thing [he] can do is get out of the way." Charlie asks if Gus is leaving. Isn't that what he just said? Gus says he'll still be around. Charlie protests that the business needs him. Gus says it's Charlie's business. Charlie feels he isn't ready. Gus says he is ready, and Gus trusts him. Charlie says this is not why he came in there, and Gus replies with the wisdom of the ages, "Maybe it is." So now Gus is just going to hand over the keys to the factory because he recognizes Charlie's superior Salinger intellect? I got two words for you: What. Ever.
