[knock at door]

Come in.

He's, uh, asking for you.

How do I look?

You look beautiful,

Miss Julie.

You always do.

I hate these dinner parties.

Don't be fibbing.

You love these parties.

You hate Annabelle Tilby.



I'm sure she'll be down soon.


Uncle Kyle.

It's about time you got here.

I'm sore sorry, uncle Kyle.

I need...

Allow me to

take responsibility.

I couldn't show up

to my first dinner party

not looking my best.

I don't recollect

meeting you before.

May I introduce myself?

Frank Dean.

John Tilby.

My wife,

Mrs. John Tilby.


- My son Lane.

- Hello.

Good evening.

You're late.

- Please forgive me. I was...

- You must be Ms. Richards.

Harty speaks

very highly of you.

I'm sure.

Dinner will be

served shortly.


After you.

What do you do, Mr. Dean?

I'm here to help Mr. Allison

with his business.


No, not mining,

but there are opportunities

above ground

when there's gold beneath it.

The future is upon us.

The cowboys and savages

I read about as a child,

they will soon be extinct.

Opportunity is truly

paved from the ore

that you gentlemen have pulled.

Look at Mr. Allison.

The man is a king,

investing his money so wisely.

Your nephew tells me

that you alone

brought electricity

to Goldfield.

First in the state.

Thanks to Mr. Allison's


Mm-hmm, yes,

he's a very generous man.

Well, that was a fine meal.

And this is an excellent

Kentucky bourbon.

It's very good.

Did you know it was

Thomas Jefferson

who made Kentucky

bourbon country?

Gave 60 acres

to the French farmers

to raise their native crops

as to honor their contribution

to the Revolutionary War.

Thomas Jefferson

was an honorable man.

Are you?

- Answer him.

- Wait a second.

- Sit down.

- Lane.

We ain't done nothing.

Sit down.

Your daddy's been

undercutting me, son.

Haven't you, John?

Is this why you invited us,

to threaten me?


we are just talking,

but Mr. Allison,

he does expect the truth.

I have done nothing.

I'm not a fool.

Well, a fool

doesn't get rich...

and a dead man don't

take it with him.

Well, I should

probably be going.


Annabelle, we're leaving.

- Let me show you out.

- No need.

Think you got to him?

I do, unless, of course,

you'd like something more.

What do you want?

Is there anything I can do

for you, Mr. Allison?


Well, you do have

her well trained.

[somber music]

Well, gentlemen, I shall

retire for the evening.

You should, both of you.

Have yourself a

good night, Kyle.

Mr. Dean?

He'll have you

well trained too.

I'm sure he will.

You do have an interesting

family, Harty Allison.

Ned and Sue have finished.

You never said,

do you like my dress?

I don't give a damn

about your dress.

I thought you wanted

the gold one.

Come here.

Come on.

Tilby was lying.

I knew Tilby was a liar.

I can't trust anyone.

You can trust me.

Trust you?

Trust you?

Why in the hell would

I ever trust you, huh?


You're not well.

I'll leave you.


Where you going?

I saw the way you looked

at him tonight.

I would never disrespect you

by looking at another man.

I belong to you.

Let me take you upstairs.

Come on.

Come on.

That's right.

I don't need your help,

you whore.

Come on, now.


I got you.

Good morning, Ms. Richards.

Frank Dean's quite a man.

He done told me about

some of the jobs he pulled,

make your skin crawl

straight off.

I assure you, sir, I had

no intentions of such a thing.
