And there's Byrne and Ralph boarding the bus of the Plains State Bison basketball team, so it's a good thing Jack and Vincent established that that was a thing earlier! Ralph finds the skim in the nervous hands of what looks like a shooting guard or even small forward.
Speaking of nervous, Tommy has stalled Barry Siler for too long, and the producer is getting impatient, and wants to see Violet now.
Tommy's about to come clean, which of course means she's about to come strolling in, which she does, Dixon escorting her. She's in a much better mood, what with Dixon having stroked her ego, and Dixon is quite distressed to see her canoodling with the older, shorter, balder fella. Silver gives him the stink-eye when Violet explains about Dixon giving her a ride back, and when Tommy explains Dixon is the deputy he hired to look after Violet, Silver wants him kept away from her. It doesn't look like Dixon's sticking around long enough for that to be a problem. And forgive me if nobody exactly feels sorry for Dixon, who is alternately hitting on anything with a vagina or getting together with Yvonne.
Byrne proudly shows Ralph the "FBI Bust Basketball Cash Laundering Scheme" headline on the front page of the daily rag, which features a picture of Byrne showing off the seized money. The story is buried underneath "MAN ENTERS SPACE," however. It does get more prominent billing than "Food to Cost Less" and I'm really curious about that one.
Ralph is kinda growly about the FBI getting all the credit, even though he's pretending not to be, but Byrne appears not to notice and seems sincere about looking forward to working a lot with Ralph, who appears to be considering the ramifications of his gun "accidentally" going off while he's cleaning it.
Outside, Byrne runs into Catherine, who is coming by to congratulate him. He smoothly says he couldn't have done it without her, since her files were his bedtime reading for the past couple of months, and there is a little more law-enforcement flirting of this type before Byrne invites her to go get a drink. She says she'll go fetch Ralph, which is not what Byrne had in mind at all, and then Catherine figures Ralph wouldn't have wanted to come anyway. Well, not with that doodoo head Byrne around, anyway.
