Back at the roundabout, Tony and Bobby arrive, but Paulie's Caddy is gone. Bobby, who's got a portable searchlight, scans the woods around them while Tony calls Paulie on his cell phone. They can't hear each other at all this time, though, and Paulie sums up this week's cell phone story arc by beating the phone against the dashboard and screaming, "Cocksucker motherfucker!" Chris comes back over and asks if that was Tony on the phone. Then he unzips and starts pissing right outside Paulie's door. "Do that by your own window," shouts Paulie. "I don't want to smell your piss." Or get it on his shoelaces, for that matter. Of course, if this really were Dumb & Dumber, he'd be happy about how warm it was. Then again, the whole Paulie/Christopher relationship could be categorized as Dumb & Dumber, so what do I know? Chris refuses to move, and Paulie gets angry. "Don't make me pull rank on you, kid." Christopher couldn't care less: "Captain or no captain, right now we're just two assholes lost in the woods." Paulie tells him to shut up and go back to sleep. "Why, so you can choke me?" answers Christopher, "I heard you on the phone, trying to blame this shit on me. You fucked up with the Russian, and now you're worried about Tony. You wait 'til I'm asleep, and then you choke me so hell just have your version." At the time I didn't think Paulie would ever actually go that far, but by the end of the episode, I think he was prepared to do just that. Paulie gets out of the van and actually does start choking Chris, who immediately draws his gun and points it at Paulie's head, saying, "I'll leave you here, you one-shoe cocksucker. You know how fast I can run." Paulie tries to calm him, saying, "With all the shit we've been through, you really think I'd try to kill you?" Just like I did last week, Chris answers, "Yes. Yes I do." Then he starts giggling like a schoolgirl, and walks away. He promises not to leave Paulie behind, but he can't stop laughing, and Paulie doesn't seem to know what to make of all this.
