- Hey, Rene.

- Zane?

- How's my favorite cousin?

- What are you doing in here?

- I wanted to talk.

- About what?

About us.

You know, there's something special

between us.

- A connection.

- I know.

- You think you can change the past?

- Of course not, silly.


- And that's a problem for us.

- Why?

Because something's past

doesn't mean that it's finished.

Zane, please stop sounding

like a fortune cookie, OK?

I'm sorry, Cuz.

- I only want what's best for you.

- I believe you.


That faith may get tested.

Well, I'm good with tests.

What do you got?

Well, it's simple.

Just tell me you believe me.


And give me a kiss.

- I shouldn't.

- It's just between us. Us and no one else.


Jesus, Rene! I'm trying to help you.

What happened?

- I saw this...

- What?

- Was Zane here?

- While you were in the tub?

What do you think?


Good guess.

What makes you think he was here?

- We were talking. It seemed real.

- I guess it wasn't a happy conversation.

No. It was OK until the end.

I guess it was just a dream.

- Bravo, Sherlock.

- That's it.

I just fell asleep, I slid under,

I started screaming, called out.

That's what happened.

Stupid. It's fine.

That's why you get As - 'cause you

figuring out really hard stuff like that.

- Yeah. And I study.

- Oh, I study.

Beer labels.

- It's what I'm good at.

- Yes, you are.

Now, who is the smartest girl

that you know?

- Um, Susan Dunleavy?

- Are you sure about that?

Baby, she passed the test to be a trainer

the first time she took it.

Well, buddy, you might wanna

rethink your position.


You are the smartest person in the world.

Maybe not in the world.

But definitely in this bathroom.

- All right, what did you find out?

- Wait a second. Ahchoo.

- What the hell is that?

- It's just a minor compulsion,

but I'm handling it better now.

Yes. Are there going to be mold spores

where we're going?

I don't know. Can we get on task now?

OK. So you know about your

great-grandfather discovering gold

- and building the Blanca Canyon house?

- That's where we're going.

Did you know he had the richest strike

in the territory?

No. Did he do anything with it?

You know, build towns, invest in stocks,

buy railroads, anything like that.

Not that I found.

- Would you like some cupcake?

- No, thank you. Go on.

I found nothing about

deeds or investments.

The gold had to go somewhere.

He takes it out of a mine, he doesn't get it

turned into cash. So, what's he do with it?

There were some rumors

about him, you know.

Like what?

People thought he murdered his first wife

and buried lots of gold with her body.

Didn't say where, by chance?


Let's see... Second wife shows up,

mail-order bride from South Dakota.

- Find out anything about a fire?

- Yeah.

It was 16 years after

he married wife number two

that the house burned down,

and everybody inside got chopped up.

- Not everybody-

- Right- One boy got away-

My grandfather.

Anybody get arrested for that?

Um, no. There wasn't even suspects.

- Do you have bugs or something, man?

- What? No.

Oh, this just helps keep me focused.

And sanitized.

So, this rich old prospector

probably didn't believe in banks.

He's got a mountain full of gold. You said

this was the richest strike in the territory?

Oh, even for the time,

he was worth millions.

Where the f*** did it go?

Don't you know about

your family's history?

- Yeah, we're cursed.

- What?

- Anything else?


Thanks again for taking me

on the road trip.

- I don't go on too many.

- Find that hard to believe.
