Ellis Tate is not in the yearbook that Schiff left on the counter; the yearbook contains no pictures of Ellis Tate; the ambiguously gendered Ellis Tate is unpictured and absent on that day. The mystique! Nancy puts some formula in a bottle and asks Stevie to brainstorm moving a bunch of hash in a hurry, but he is just a baby and so he's no fuckin' help, but then the act of putting the formula in a bottle inspires her to... Invent a new drug entirely? I'm confused by this storyline but you know, I don't know anything about drugs. So maybe this is a trend or was at some point a trend. Maybe it's something the angry writer heard about at a poker game while he was high, and we're going to pretend it's real. Could be any of those. I guarantee you that this episode was written by somebody who loves poker and believes that poker skills are an indicator of masculinity. The signs are there.
Shane tries out names: "Silas Guinard. Mike Guinard!" Silas gets nervous and they fight out the same thing they've been trying to get us to fight out all year: Well, Andy has light hair, not that he's Silas's dad but maybe there is something going on, genetically, recessive or something, they haven't been in school in a very long time and if you don't know anything then everything's up for debate, but then if it's not that he's blonde like Andy then what is it? Why doesn't he have a Jewfro like Grandpa Lenny? Silas points out that Schiff is out to lunch, like, Lars could be black for all we know, and Shane makes a sub-Doug joke ("It's Lars, not DeLars") and they're on little electric scooters from Skymall, riding toward Lars's house, and when they get there Shane knocks on the door and Silas freaks out and Shane asks about the car Lars is selling and Lars, who looks not unlike Silas Botwin -- and laughs about how he ordered two scooters just like those from Skymall but they never arrived, which is to say they were never delivered by his postman, Mr. Schiff, who owns two scooters from Skymall -- runs off to get the keys, teeth brightly shining, and when Shane points out the resemblance and Silas tells him to go to hell, Shane gets a semi-okay joke: "Yeah, Helsinki!" Take what you can get.
