(we don't learn his name until right now, so I'm still just going according to the mugs), "Sheriff Gaines, are you interested in the rest of the details?" He asks if he should be filling out a report, but the Sheriff has no interest in paperwork, telling him he won't do a thing until he can figure out whether Jim's story checks out or if he is just "some sort of a prankster or something. You ain't a prankster now, are you, boy?" Dawn repeats the word "prankster" with a giggle. Cut to the charred and smoking remains of Bodnick's ex-house, Jim deadpanning to rather amusing effect, "Well, it would appear this part of my story checks out. Either that, or I really am quite the prankster." Just then, The Three Product-Placed Ross-Dress-For-Less Suit-Wearers Of The Apocalypse saunter down a hill and flash their badges, announcing themselves as representative of the "gaming commission." Jim asks to see their badges and is refused, and one of Mr. Blue Diamonds, Green Clovers, And Purple Horseshoes Are Part Of This Nutritious Breakfast asks the Sheriff, "Who's he?" The Sheriff asserts, "He's nobody," and Jim starts in, "Actually, I'm Agent Jim Prufrock, Carson City office of the Internal " Yikes. Looks like someone's gonna need a bigger mug. The "gaming" "commission" tells the Sheriff that Bodnick killed himself, and Jim is refused so much as their names. The Sheriff advises The Three Product-Placed Ross-Dress-For-Less Suit-Wearers Of The Apocalypse to "stay hydrated," and just like that we're back on Interstate Cock-Eyed, heading back toward the police station. Jim barges back inside, and goes toe-to-toe with the sheriff, who asserts to Jim that sometimes the mind plays tricks on you when traumatic events transpire, letting him know, "That man took his life, those boys have the case. Never mind what you think you saw." Jim asks in the twelfth way he thinks to phrase it, "So, you refuse to take my statement?" Gaines has got the segue of the history of the desert southwest: "I tell you what I refuse goin' hungry! Dawn, wanna get some Quizno's, honey?" Why Quizno's? More shameless placement, or was that just the place where Affleck was found wandering around in a daze telling people he was Jesus taking a ship to heaven? Oh, never mind. That was Anne Heche. And it was "Fresno." Nah. On second thought, it was Affleck. And have you seen him lately? It was totally, totally Quizno's. With a side of Arby's and a couple of third graders.
