Meanwhile, the sun's going down in the desert and our gangster heroes are whiling away the time by discussing which disagreeable old women from home they'd prefer to have sex. Currently up for debate: old lady Spinelli vs. Sister Dorothy. Savino says he'd rather blow his brains out, which assumes either one of those dignified women would have anything to do with him.
And then, to no one's surprise (except the guys in the car), the car breaks down because Red apparently forgot to top up the radiator. Savino starts hoofing it since they're not going to get thirty miles sitting around on the hood of the car.
Ralph and Dixon arrive at the hotel to catch the Teentastics singing "To Know Him is to Love Him," and talk to the family afterward. Wait, how much later is this? She's back on stage after almost drowning and having her stomach pumped already? Fay gives Dixon a big hug upon finding out he's the one who saved her, but she doesn't remember anything other than having a bite of food and then going for a dip. Next thing she knew, she was waking up in the hospital. Jack shows up to share with Dixon and Ralph the lab reports on her stomach contents: trace amounts of rat poison. He talked to the hotel's kitchen manager, who said there was a sketchy guy hanging around under the guise of looking for a job but who disappeared when the manager left to get an application form. He's a husky brown-haired guy with glasses, so Ralph and Jack will try to track him down while Dixonwill gallantly walk-through the day with Fay to try to "jog her memory," i.e. "get her naked."
It's night in the desert and the gangsters are blistered, hungry and thirsty and about to get cold. Cota at least is trying to start a fire with sticks -- "The Boy Scouts are full of crap," he complains -- but Red is firing into the dark at a coyote and Savino is blaming him -- because he couldn't do the job -- for the reason Savino is stuck in Vegas in the first place. Cota gives up on the fire and suggests they bundle up together for warmth, like he saw on an adventure show one time, but the looks on Red's and Savino's faces prompt him to give the fire another try.
