When the song is over, Bunny says that he's making a big mistake, and walks out. Jonesy agrees that Ripley made a mistake, but Ripley says that his marriage would be over if he were partners with Bunny. What they need, says Ripley, is a "whale," a high roller who attracts other business. 'Cause people get excited seeing other people win; it makes them feel like the place is lucky. ["But don't the real high rollers get their own private VIP gaming areas? So…who would even see them? Ugh." -- Sars]
Back at the Holden garage, Jack's still looking at the gun. Natalie comes outside on her way to work, and he hides the gun behind his back. Then, after she's gone, he hides it in his car. someone can find it later, yadda yadda. Yawn.
Ripley is on the phone calling in a favor from a mystery person. Peter and Mick are there when he gets off the phone, and Mick asks him if he's having a problem with another business partner. Ripley intuits that they're talking about Buddy. He reiterates that he was home with his wife the night of the murder and that's the truth. Peter says that "truth is relative, but when money's involved, it's seldom related to the facts." While he's saying that, he puts a quarter in a nearby slot machine. Mick pulls the lever and, amazingly, they get three 7s as soon as Peter has made his stupid point about truth, which seriously makes so little fucking sense. Peter says to Ripley, as they are standing eye-to-eye, "Look at that. And they say this place is unlucky." Barf.
At a spa, we see Jonesy walking around in a shorty bathrobe covering his already covered private parts. He has the skinniest legs ever. Like, Melanie Griffith is Fat Legs next to Jonesy. This whole thing is so fucked up and weird. Bunny is loudly ordering some architect to put an "atrium of inner peace" in her home. It's a really heated conversation and she's all, "Because I need my INNER PEACE!" Kinda funny. But on this show, funny/interesting/coherent is relative, but when logic/taste/sentience is involved, they...I can't even finish. Kill me. When Bunny gets off the phone, she tells an attendant at the spa to get Jonesy a mud pack, but he says that he's allergic to mud. Oh, by the way, there's never a single drunk thing about Jonesy. I know, "functional alcoholic," but come on. This guy is not a big drinker. He looks like half a sake-tini could put him under the table. Bunny says that she wants to help -- and maybe Jonesy will take her money without Ripley knowing. She's kind of flirting too, which makes me uneasy. Is she really that slutty? Jonesy doesn't want to take the money because Ripley is his friend, but Bunny says that Ripley doesn't have friends, only "business associates." Buddy was a business associate and look what happened to him. Jonesy ponders Bunny's offer.
