Vincent heads down to the casino floor and finds Jones sitting in front of a drink at the bar. They exchange warm mobster greetings about what good friends they are, Vincent fishing to find out the reason for Jones' visit. Jones says he's trying to track down Davey Cornaro, who vanished. What's worse, "the sandwich" never made it back to Milwaukee. Vincent says the ADA was bringing heat over Cornaro's union beef, so maybe Cornaro skipped town. Jones doesn't buy it, but doesn't actually say so. "It's a troubling situation. The bosses in Milwaukee want me to resolve it, so I can't go home until I do," he says. He and Vincent stare at each other for a moment -- when people on TV stare at each other like this, I always think of Larry David staring up people's nostrils to see if they're lying -- and then Jones leaves, having not touched his drink, because we've got to cram in another affectation: That he just orders drinks because he likes the smell.
Vincent tells Red that he can't have Jones sniffing around while Laura is here. "Every time he shows up, bodies start dropping," he says, and since he told Jones he thinks Cornaro skipped town, he wants Red to make it look the case.
Over at the Larson house -- it could be "Larsen," I suppose, but IMDb is currently listing the characters' names as "Ludlow" -- Jack strolls into Tim's bedroom, where Tim's mom, whose name I missed, is waiting to deliver a speech about how sad she is, and Jack can reassure her to the extent that I kinda wondered if he was going to hit on her.
Then the phone rings, and the two of them sprint to the dining room where everyone gathers around. The phone company's going to trace the call, so let's hope it's not Grandma calling from Kansas to find out if she's allowed to come for Christmas.
