Hotel, somewhere in the Pacific Northwest, where Silas is thinking about shaving his head. Shane goes into some little boy thing about how cool switchblades are -- "...flips out of a comb! Or maybe you should just get a comb that looks like a switchblade, so you don't accidentally cut yourself!" -- but somewhere between the annoying excitement of all tween boys and the creepiness lingering on the edges of his knife fascination, Silas jumps on him. They beat each other up -- "Don't make me go Pilar on your ass!" -- and Andy pulls them apart, telling Silas not to shave his head: "Chicks like something to grab on to." There's a hilarious moment where he starts looking for random channels to see if he can illustrate his point with Taxi Driver, and Silas is still pissed, but then Nancy comes out in a very awful wig: "Fake and hookery," actually, is Andy's description.
Andy decides it's time to pick new names. Nancy snips at her horrible multicolored hookery wig and complains about both Price and Botwin, the latter specifically because she hated always having to spell it. Andy gets grandiose -- "Meaningful. Metaphoric. Phoenix." -- but then quickly starts picking out porn-name sounding names. Shane says they need to pick stuff that already sounds like your name, so you'll answer to it. Like "Shane" will become "Shawn." Andy gives him a last name: Newman. Meaningful and metaphoric and of uncertain heritage. Maybe Jewish, maybe not.
"Newman, like, Alfred E.? Or Paul?" Like Randy, which rhymes with Andy, which is Andy's new name: Randy Newman. Nancy picks Nathalie, spelling out the silent "h," and then, anxious not to completely erase themselves, calls Stevie "Avi." Still named for his father. "Not that you know your name yet, but you will. I love that you sleep all the time. I know a mother's not supposed to say that, but I do." She's out of it. I guess Nathalie is out of it. (I miss Lacey most of all, I think.) Silas, nothing rhymes with Silas, so he picks Mike. The Newman family.
