So it's over to the convention center, where Ronnie's on his way in to the fight when he's met by Ralph, dangling handcuffs. He thinks about running, but the other Lambs are behind him, with shotguns. Shown the pipe with his blood on it, due to the jagged handle that ripped his palm, Ronnie admits to hitting Tommy, saying it was because he was sleeping with his wife. He never saw them do it, but just assumed after the late-night anonymous phone calls and after following his wife last night when she met with Tommy. Tommy saw Ronnie and "stumbled" towards him, which was when Ronnie hit him.
But O'Connell comes in to pull the Lamb boys out to tell them that according to the coroner, the blows didn't kill Tommy: a heart-attack did. That's why he stumbled, that's why he looked pale and sweaty. The painkillers combined with any prescription medicine could have done it. Well, if only we knew anyone on prescription medication!
Before we get there, though, it's over to Mobster Supper, where Angelo tells the assembled gangster of the indignity of the sheriff laying hands on him in their casino in front of their friends, in front of his daughter. He yells that last part. "The cowboy goes," says Rizzo, calling him a "dumb cowboy they dug up because nobody was stupid enough to take the job." And just for good measure, Rizzo adds that if Vinny can't handle a "mook" like Lamb, then maybe they need someone else to run the Savoy.
Savino's turn: He tells Rizzo, "respectfully," that none of this would have happened if he'd just stayed in the private room with his best dealers, his best booze, and yes, they let Rizzo win, but that's because -- as everybody at this table knows -- Rizzo can't handle his losses like a man.
Savino says he'll take out the sheriff if Angelo wants him to, but if they kill Lamb then the best-case scenario is that even if the feds don't come after them and the state doesn't revoke their license, Las Vegas still has two dead sheriffs inside a month, and it's hard to build a tourism campaign around that. "What man is going to take his wife to a city without any law?" he asks. No tourism, no money, no suitcases going home. They need Lamb alive -- for now. The defense rests!
