Ripley asks her again for help, and Bunny says that now he knows what it's like to want what he can't have. Ripley says that once he got the casino together, he made a pledge to be true to Natalie (I guess that's his wife's name? Thanks -- episode's half over). Bunny says that she doesn't want to hear the "N" word, so she starts singing along to "One Way Or Another." It's truly bad. There's lots of stripper-y dancing and grinding. Ripples sings along with her at points and finally gives her "the slip" very abruptly. Then he asks her once more for her help. She says that Buddy is at the point of his life where everything is a sunset, but she likes sunrises and Ripples has the "best sunrise this side of the Grand Canyon." That has to be breaking some sort of laws. Like real, legal laws. Can they just get away with lines like that? The FCC sucks. I thought they were protecting us. Bunny says that in exchange for her help, she would expect a "little company" from Ripples. I don't think she's talking book club, folks. He declines, and she tells him to say goodbye to the Viva because she is the only person who can change Buddy's mind. He's outta there.
Next, we see Ripley standing in front of Nicky's casino and drinking from the giantest bottle of scotch. It's huge. He looks really forlorn. Later, someone drives up to the Viva, gets out of the car (they're wearing really pointy shoes), and walks into the building. Natalie calls Ripley's cell phone and asks where he is -- it's the middle of the night. She's worried.
The next morning, Ripley arrives at the Viva and there are police everywhere. Bunny is driving up too. Hopefully, she's about to be booked for that sunrise line. Ripley is escorted inside, where he finds Buddy dead at his desk. Bunny's all crying over him. Eric "Jason McCallister" Winters appears to be one of the coppers. This might not be so bad after all. At least it will be prettier.
Ripley is sitting in stunned silence when Bunny plops down beside him. She says that when they talked about changing Buddy's mind, she "did not mean put a hole in it." That line's not a crime? Come on! Ripples says he had nothing to do with it, and Bunny asks him where he was the night before and who was he with. Pretty intuitive there, Bunny. He asks where she was, and she cries, "With my yoga teacher!" That made up for the last line a little bit. When the pretty police starts to walk up, she screams, "Why did you do it?" Then she tells the cops that they should ask Ripley where he was the night before and who he was with. Damn, some instinct. Then she stumbles away (as a uniformed police officer kind of escorts her, weirdly) crying, "How could you? Just ask!"
