in Benson County...

and most of the Dairy Queens,

with no machines.

I don't want Benson County.

But Arlis, I had to drive

through Benson to get here.

- Why not expand a little?

- I'm big enough.

- I don't need Benson.

- But Arlis...

Just make a note

about the machines, Elliot.

Say, Arlis, I almost forgot.

There was a fella askin'

about you over in Woodlake.

- Denny Harris?

- No. Just some fella.

Said he knew you from way back.

I figured he must've

worked for you sometime.

- Why is that?

- He had one of our dimes.

You know, the blue juke dimes?

- You get a name?

- He didn't offer. I didn't ask.

Said he wanted to look you up.

Anyway, I stayed vague.

You did right.

I'll see you on the 7th.

Looks like I'm gonna

be stretchin' felt in the mornin'.

You're gonna be stretchin' your luck

Just wait till that damn cake

pops its lid.

Unless that little pastry inside

comes with a bicycle pump...

and two sisters, there ain't gonna

be a farm animal safe tonight.

Go! Go! Go! Go!

Three, two, one!

Christ Almighty.

Just put her in my pickup.

- Lookin' good.

- Here's to ya, honey!

Feel like knockin' a few sins

off your ledger, Arlis?

You want me to find out

if she's got a home.

And take her there.

What's the damage?

Well, put it this way.

Feed this girl a cucumber,

it'd come out pickles.


I figure the bed's one

of those vibratin' numbers...

so that explains the quarters.

Nobody could possibly

fancy pretzel twists that much...

so I figured you won some kind

of weird contest.

As for the condoms, well,

either you got a yen...

for cheerleading squads,

or we had the night of all nights.


There's an explanation.

As for the blue chicken,
