Lane Aaron Dodd, get your ass

down from there right now!

But I'm Superman!

Your butt's gonna be super red

if you don't do as I say.



You know it was a lie

'Cause deep inside

mz heart...

Hey, good-lookin'!

- Jesus H. Christ, Roy.

- Oh, dear.

- Don't do that!

- I'm sorry, darlin'.

God, you almost made me piss

on the rug!

I'm sorry.

- Why are you so jumpy?

- I just...

What the hell are you doin' here

in the middle of the day?

Shouldn't you be at work?

Your daddy asked me

to run some errands for him,

so I thought I'd just kinda stop

by and see if you was ovulatin'.

[Music continues]

Well, I don't know if I am

or not.

Well, you're dressed

like you should be ovulatin'.

Hmm? [Laughs]


Roy, no. Not right now.

Come on.

- That towel will come off...

- You should go to work.

Daddy will miss you, then

there'd be a lot of shit,

and he'll get pissed off...

Darlin', it ain't possible

for him not to get pissed off.

He ain't gonna have

no problem with it

if he thinks we're making

a grandbaby.

- Roy...

- Real quick?

Just a little quickie.

I can't do this right now,

God damn it.

- Very fast?

- I have...

I have a ton of shit to do.

I got to pack.

We got to leave tomorrow, baby!


All right.


What the hell happened

to our wedding picture?


Too much catnip, you know?

- Murphy?

- Yes. Baby...

He must've mule-kicked

the dang...

...I have to tell you


Come over here.

- What?

- You ready?

- What?

- Okay.

So I've been thinkin', and...

You know what I really want to

do when we get to Reno?


I want to renew

our wedding vows.


What for?

Because it's romantic, Roy.

A lot of people get married

where gambling is legal.

Well, one kinda does go

with the other, don't it?
