The Moron Triplets are at Junior’s mom’s studio, where Angie shows them the hilarious painting with the pink stars, and Norrie and Joe look suitably horrified at how Junior’s mom ever qualified as an art teacher. Joe is still threatening to throw a pissy hissy fit in Junior’s general direction, but Norrie is all, "It’s not what we want, but what the dome wants," and then in walks Junior and Joe "attacks" him and Junior quickly puts Joe in a headlock and he’s pissed at Angie because she wasn’t supposed to tell anyone about the kidnapping. True, but on the other hand IS THE ACTUAL KIDNAPPING, so I can’t say you’re exactly even, Junior. Angie tells him he’s got to help them, because they’re all connected to something amazing.
In Thunderdome, Barbie and Victor trade blows, until Barbie starts to get the upper hand and knocks Victor down. Max looks pleased and Barbie notices, and then starts goading Victor to get up: "No wonder your wife and kids left you!" This pisses Victor off enough to make him get up and he grabs Barbie, who quietly tells Victor to hit him as hard as he can. Victor obliges, delivering a thundering hit that sends Barbie sprawling. He’s not getting up. A suspicious-looking (implausibly so, given what we will soon learn) Maxine heads out onto the floor to declare Victor the winner and about half the crowd cheers while the others are booing.
"Guess the best man won," mutters Barbie, after getting to his feet. But Max knows he’s full of shit and tells him he threw the fight, just like she knew he would. He denies it, but she’s not buying it: "Everyone here bet on the hero and lost their asses," she says, adding that she bet on Victor, because she knows Barbie would do anything except let her win. Barbie stares at her, not denying it anymore. OK, two things: From the reaction of the crowd, clearly some of them bet on Victor. But let’s chalk that up to a show that can’t be arsed to worry about little things like "consistency" and "believability" and assume some of the extras were instructed to root for Barbie and the others to root for Victor -- who did Maxine bet with? She’s the casino. She’s the house. And if everyone did bet on Barbie, betting on Barbie is unnecessary because that’s what happened anyway?
Oh god, over at the bank Linda Law Enforcement actually says, "There it is. Duke’s safe-deposit box," just in case Julia or the audience has forgotten what the point of this is. She opens it up, and inside is a little toy sheriff’s star, which she gave to him after his heart surgery, joking that the doctors found it where his heart should have been.
