While Fiona tries to politely blow off Steve's hotel plan, Frank's at a pawn shop desperately trying to come up with cash for the goons, stealing from blind people, whatever. There's a very long, very racist conversation that's pretty boilerplate Frank -- Palestinian stereotypes, Jewish stereotypes, references to Pontius Pilate and circumcision and repeated "Jew me down" -- but as usual, if you think that's the funny thing about this show we're not ever going to be friends so I don't see why I should recap it. Showtime has this White Humor thing where they have jackasses say racist shit and so you're allowed to both laugh at the racist shit and also feel superior about the racist shit, and it's just dumb and gross, because really the only person who ever knows how ironic you're being is: You.
Inside the truck is a bunch of meat. Outside the truck, minutes later, is a very confused asshole of a trucker. I'd like to think that the show put in just enough thought that the guy was only robbable because he was such a fuckwad to Lip and the kids, but I think that's only true about this show during some episodes. Sometimes Lip has the ethics, like Ian, and other times he's an anarchic thug who knocks kids unconscious and steals their bikes. It's one of the things they didn't nail down yet, so every writer of each episode can go different places with it. I think it's likely that by the end they'll make Lip a vigilante type, so that's what we're going with here.
Ian comes running into Kash & Grab and immediately notices the fact that Kash's face looks like stolen hamburger, because the Mickey Beatings have become a regular occurrence, because Kash is, um, begging for it. "I don't think he detached my retina this time," he mumbles, and Ian's all about once again replacing the stolen merchandise, but it turns out that this time, Mickey also took the gun. Just relieved Kash of his firearm. I mean, Kash's point -- how could I actually shoot Mickey Milkovich, a child -- is valid, but still. Kash also admits that he hates the store and always wanted to be a landscaper.
More logistics of cutting up and storing the billion pounds of beef they stole, more arguments about the hotel plan. Fiona runs off to take care of the toilet and her 99 other problems, and Kev finally calls Steve out for embarrassing himself. "Fiona's a hood girl, not a debutante from Glencoe. It's painful, man! You always asking her on 'lunches'? Taking a 'getaway'? What's next, coed bikini waxes and a spa day? When she says Fuck you it means I like you. It's hood-girl speak. Learn the language."
