Lou presents the crew with a dinner of franks and beans. They've come a long way from Sully's gourmet meals. Lou carries a tray in to Tommy in the locker room. Tommy doesn't say a word as Lou presents the food, and then suggests that Tommy might want to put in an appearance at some point. Tommy sits there and silently smokes. Lou starts to leave, and then says that he used to think it would be great if Tommy would just shut up for a while, but it's not that great.
As Lou walks back, his phone rings. It's Dani, and she reports that F-Bomb let her out of her contract; she sounds giddy. Lou thinks they should celebrate, and offers to go out and buy a huge bottle of champagne. Dani's into the idea, but then realizes that she can't do it tonight, because her mother's sick and she needs to go to New Jersey for a few days. Dani promises that she'll be back on Friday. Lou says very sincerely that he feels like he's getting a second chance, which only makes it more sad when you realize that Dani is totally setting him up. Poor Lou.
Chief and Franco ride in the front of a truck and talk about Chief's situation. The scene is shot from behind them, so you only see the backs of their heads and a little bit of Chief's face in the rearview mirror. Chief says that the doctor wants him to drop Jeannie off in Connecticut and not see her for six weeks, so that Jeannie can adjust to her new surroundings. Franco thinks that sounds cold. Chief starts choking back sobs and says, "This goddamn disease, stealing my girl away." He can't speak for a moment, and Franco looks over at him. Chief says sadly, "Don't look at me, kid." That was fucking heartbreaking, and it was all done with the voice, since you couldn't see either man's face. Well done. I think both Franco and Chief are underutilized on this show.
