I don't remember a thing.

I'm blacked right out.

Ya really had a sip, you loser!

Dill Pickle are scared.

Don't call me that Lyle.

Rebecca, be careful!

Must've been like a

twelve-pack or something.

Had to be the look out.

Can't drink when I'm on the job.

Like your dad's gonna wake up?


Bells rang, boys.

Whatever, Mr Howard.

This is all a joke to you guys huh?

Let's see how funny these test scores are.

Honey, jump off!

Dylan, please get back in your seat.

- Dylan? - Dylan, are you ok?

- Dylan ?!

- Is he ok, Mr Howard? - Hey, hey,

Dylan, buddy?! - What's wrong with him?

Dylan, wake up! Hey, Dylan!

Oh my God! Rebecca!

Rebecca! Wake up!

Rebecca, honey?!!

Go get another dream - Andrew Johnson

Dylan, my man.

You gotta get yourselves some new porn.

- Want a beer?

- I'm on the clock. Where u been?


Christ, boy, you cleaned this white closet

I've followed by but you're goddamn telling me can't sweep up in here

every once in a while?

- No-one comes around as you.

- Then you should make an effort.

- Where u been?

- Car wash.

- Got an extra shift.

- Bullshit.

- Call 'em. - Think I won't ?

- Think you should.

- Have you been associated with any

known criminals? - No, sir. Have not.

Have you crossed over the

state's line at any time?

No, sir. Have not.

How's the job going?

Mm. Boring. But still mine.

Two months. Mm.

Gotta be some kinda record.

Anything else you need to know?

I need to know when you're gonna slip up,

and stick your packet in the grease again.

This may be a dumb question.

But what did I ever do to you?

You went into other people's houses,

and took things that didn't belong to ya.

- Things that they worked long and hard for.

- And I paid my debt, Giddons.

My conscience is shiny and new.

Yeah, well, how about Bo and Lyle ?

Bo and Lyle weren't on that job.

So the record states.

Yeah, it's real sweet of you, take the hit

for your old school buddies.

Giddons, all due respect, you're

not a detective. You're my PO.

And I know that you ride me more than most.


You're smart. And ain't nuttin' in

this world dumber than a smart guy.

A smart man. He sees beyond his little

world. And it kinda whoops him.

So when he makes that wrong move,

and you will.

It tends to be messy.

Well, maybe there's a side

of me you don't see.

As long as you're on parole,

you are only what I see.


I'd like to do it if I was you. There's

burglars and thieves around these parts.

I bet you thought I wasn't gonna make it.

- I wasn't sure that I was. - Oh that's

right, you only have 12 hours to change.

- You should've started last night.

- Haha. She said gamely.

Well, 2 of our trustees are gonna be

at the Thomasons.

- Do I have to be charming?

- No, just be yourself

Actually, you need to be a little charming.

Just nod, and smile and talk to the wives.

It's the Thomasons.Dorothy's gonna be there.

You can gossip behind our backs.

I promise he'll turn my back

as often as possible.

Is that what you're wearing?

Temptation - Ray Beadle

Let's go double or nuttin'.

I'll spare you 3 balls this time.

- All tapped out, buddy.

- C'mon man. Don't be a p*ssy

- Know you got some green right there

in the pocket. - Nah, I'm good.

Hey, you walk out on a man who's still

gambling. You might catch a bad..

Are you starting fights again, Dyl ?

Why don't you rack'em up, big guy?

I'll happy to take those cash off you.

C'mon man.

Let me buy you a beer.

So what you been working on, man?

- Dirty cars, mostly.

- Yeah, that sounds shitty.

Better work's comin'. Ya know, lotta new

businesses going belly up in this colony.

Tons o' sh*t just sitting there.

Just waiting to be picked.

I know you could use the money. Especially

if you ever wanna play pool again.

- I'm not exactly flush.

- Well, hell, let's change that.

'ey, can I get a beer here

for my poor relation?

We'll be seeing you.

You know, Giddons finds out

that you and' Bo 've been chatting..

He's gonna send you right back up, man.

Yeah, he probably will anyway.

- Personally I think you're a shoo-in.

- I don't know guys.

The city council will be a good stab But I

still have a hospital to run, you know.

I'm just... I'm not sure

if I'm ready to move on.

Methinks a man doth protest too much.

- Not at all.

- Stop it.

He's still got 4 months of

protesting ahead of him.

- Wait until we start begging before

you announce. - Please don't ever....

Sweetie, it's an undeniable truth

that might as well be written in print.

- What truth? - Chief Booth is

having a thing. He's taking lovers.

- Paula Dawn?

- Dawn? She that..?

She runs that gift shop,

sells those little ceramic thingys.

- Oh yes, thank you.

- She's good.

gibberish gossip

Hey Dylan.

Hey, Donna.

- You'll buy me a drink?

- Uhh...


Damn... all cleaned out right now.

I mean I would..

You can have mine.

Oh.. that's ok.

I don't want your cooties.

No, no, no.

I've been to a specialist about that.

And they turned out to be...

benign cooties.


Wait what?

Nothing, just some...

So...what's been going

on with you?

Oh, just, you know...

..the usual.

Hey, you working?

Yeah, yeah...
