So sorry to do this,

Mr. and Mrs. Gallup.

But I need to ask

a few questions.

Honey, I really gotta pee,

you gotta hurry, Ray.

I gotta go, now.

I'm gonna piss my pants

in the seat right now.

- You want me to go in with you?

- No.

Wait, wait, um...

what do you wanna do

about dinner?

Get away from me.

Want me to stop

and get some coffee?

No. I'm gonna take a nap.

- You okay?

- Yeah, just tired.

I love you, Maggie.


Ben? It's Ray.

Maybe he had an emergency.

Yeah, maybe. The signs are on.

It looked bigger

in the pictures.

Big as it needs to be I guess.


It's all yours.

I can't believe, he'd

leave the key out

where anyone could just...

- Babe, where you going?

- Huh?

To get the stuff.

Well you don't have to

do that now.

I'm not gonna leave it

out there overnight.

Alright fine,

let's just get it over with.

No, no, no, I can do it.

You go on to bed.

- Are you sure?

- Yeah, I got it.

- Hello?

- Hey Ray, man, you made it.

Ah that's good, that's good.

You found the keys?

You just left it outside.

Oh, yeah, I just wanted

to make sure you got in okay.

How do you like the place?

Pretty sweet, huh?

Well the microwave,

it's... it's not...

Oh, don't worry,

I got that taken care of.

You see by the phone?

I left a card

with all the numbers.

I think so. Numbers?

All the vendors, the vendors.

You don't really need

anything else, so good luck.

Wait, so I don't have

an email on you, or a cellphone?

If something comes up,

is there something wrong?

F*** no man, nothing like that.

I mean, the place is yours.

I gotta tell you,

you guys are gonna love it.

- Wait.

- Look it...

You can handle this, I promise.

Just keep it simple. I gotta go.

Ava, right?

Uh, I'm Ray, the new owner.

Yeah, so I'm Ray,

my wife Maggie, she's...

well you'll meet her.


Oh, strange how cold it can get

out in the desert, huh?


Who's he?

He's my nephew.

Alright, well,

if you need anything. Just...

- Okay.

- Alright.

Who was that?

It's just the cleaning lady.

She wasn't very talkative.

Mm, I guess we're gonna have to

wake up early from now on.

You don't have to,

I'll let in her.

I'll get her a key.

You were gone for hours

last night.

I know.

I was already asleep.

I know, I was just...

just a little restless

thinking of everything

we have to do here.

- Hey!

- Ow!

Ow! Oh, that hurt!

- It hurt?

- Yeah.

Babe, can you grab us a new

frying pan when you're in town?

Not a lot of room

in these cabinets either.

I'd call Ben and complain

but his number's

been disconnected.


That's weird,

- Maybe he changed it.

- Yeah, maybe.

Maybe, I'll get a little frame

for those while I'm out.

That'd be nice.

Thank you.

A key.

Somebody here?

Our first guest,

I put her in room six.


I thought we were gonna wait

to go official tomorrow.

So, we're a soft launch,

it's okay.

I felt bad for her,

she looked tired.

Yeah, okay.

At first, I was really nervous,

but then I did

the whole registration thing,

I took the cash, it was cool.

So, who's the guest?

I don't know, some woman.

And, by herself?

As far as I could tell.

She said she needed to sleep.

This all feels

really good to me, Ray.

I... Once business picks up,

I think we're gonna be

real comfortable here.

Yeah. Good, me too.

You want a beer?

No, I'm okay.

Oh hey, you must be

the new boss man.

Something like that. I'm Ray.

Hey Ray, how are you? I'm Tommy.

Nice thing about my rig

being so loud

is I don't need to ring

that damn buzzer, do I?

I'll take number ten

if it's free.
