On the road, the farmer pulls over because the road the gangsters need to go on was never finished, and where they need to go is five miles east over the brush. The truck is too heavy and might get stuck he says. So they're hoofing it again, but the daughter catches up to Savino and gives him her finished copy of To Kill a Mockingbird for his daughters, putting him back into a semi-good mood.
At the hotel, Dixon shows up to confront Fay's father about cutting her out of the act, which is news to her, even if her father doesn't think it should be: "Family acts don't drink, smoke reefer and run around with every Tom, Dick and deputy who crosses her path," he says. Aw, he couldn't have said "the reefer"? Just for me? Fay accuses him of being a hypocrite for having a different waitress in every hotel, while Mom's got more pills in her than a damn pharmacy. The rest of the family doesn't seem particularly shocked by the accusations, but Dixon might want to rethink the "Holy shit, this is awesome" look on his face.
Dixon says it's convenient that Fay is poisoned just as Mr. Binder wants her out of the group, and the father is all, Yeah, I don't NEED to poison her because I CAN KICK HER OUT OF THE GROUP, YOU IDIOT. "Now, Junior, run along. I think it's a school night," he says. Snicker.
While the rest of the family takes their meals, Fay mopes at the bar. Dixon suggests she take hers too and they'll go sit outside. "That's a chef's salad. I hate eggs," she says, and leaves to go mope alone. That's probably a clue, right? I swear, this show is like an hour-long Encyclopedia Brown mystery sometimes.
Over the last five miles in the brush, their lives presumably flashing before their lives, Red decides to admit he slept with Cota's sister. Twice. Cota's much too feeble to respond with anything more than a tired "you son of a bitch" but then everyone's energy is restored when they spot the trailer, and start running.
The guy they meet there is none too happy about them being a day late, since he slept in his car, but Savino is livid when it turns out the stolen machines are French ones that take francs and even have the wrong plugs. "What am I, an electrician?" says the connection, rather ill-advisedly. Even more ill-advised is his attempt to leave with the money. Instead, the three gangsters take his car and leave him stranded out there. He's probably dead now.
