COIN CAM! We watch the quarter flip and spin into the fountain.
The lion tells Jaye, "See a penny, pick it up." Jaye pouts out of frame.
COIN CAM! The quarter hits the bottom of the fountain.
The UPS guy leaves.
Shot of the statue. Jaye walks over and stares at the coins. One is extra-shiny. It's the quarter. She rolls up her sleeve and puts her hand in the water. A blonde girl walks over and says, "You're not supposed to steal." Jaye sneers to her, "You're not supposed to talk to strangers. Piss off!" Maybe if Jaye were funnier I'd find her endearing. But man, she's grumpy. Jaye stares at the quarter. The eagle moves on its branch. Jaye jumps and flings the quarter. It rolls.
COIN CAM! The quarter rolls down the cement, through the legs of passing tourists. Jaye follows. The quarter rolls down stairs. Jaye follows. The quarter flies through the air and lands into an open lunch bag. Somehow, Jaye can see that. Someone picks up the lunch bag, gets on a bike, and rides away. Jaye runs, wondering aloud what she's doing.
Jaye follows the man on the bike, but he's listening to headphones and can't hear Jaye shouting. Luckily, he dumps the lunch bag into a nearby trashcan just as Jaye gives up. Jaye runs to the trashcan and digs through the lunch bag. A nearby elderly couple watch her in judgment. Jaye finds her quarter, but the eagle no longer dances. Instead, something else is shiny: it's the reflection of the brooch on the purse of the angry lady from the gift shop. Jaye has found her stolen bag. She picks it up out of the trash. "You gotta be kidding," she says. We go to commercial.
Jaye is at her home, eating chicken. She leaves a piece in front of the wax lion. Then she takes it back. She talks out loud, recapping the show up to now. The purse was empty: "Was that supposed to mean something? Was it a metaphor? Are you Satan? Are you God?" The lion doesn't respond. Jaye says that if he doesn't say something in the next five seconds, she'll assume he's Satan. She counts to four and then stops. "Oh, God," she says. "I'm a crazy person."
Jaye knocks on the motel-room door of the foul-mouthed lady. "I found your purse," Jaye says, when the woman opens the door. She hands it to her. The woman sees the purse is empty. "Well, where's my wallet? Brush? My tampons?" Jaye says the bag was in the garbage. The woman asks how Jaye found it, then: "Wednesday your day to dig through the trash?" Jaye tells the woman her voice just got loud. "You bet your ass, my voice just got loud because you and your little friend stole my purse!" Jaye scoffs, and then the woman tells Jaye what she learned on 60 Minutes about identity theft and tourists. She calls Jaye a bitch. Jaye says she came her to be nice and knocked on seventy-one doors before she found the right one. She holds up her fist to show how raw her knuckles are. The woman sees it as a threat and punches Jaye dead in the face. We are treated to Sound Effect #38: "Punch (to face)." Jaye and the woman face off for a second, and then break into a catfight.
