I'll tell ya, glad you're here

I didn't think you'd make it.

Heard they're closin'

the highway tonight.

Ah, not yet.

Fire's still 65 miles out.

- Yeah?

- Ah!

Thanks. Cheers.

You're sweatin'

like a pig, Barrett.

- What's the buy-in?

- Hundred bucks.

What's the game?

- Texas hold 'em.

- Guy's robbing me blind.

So, what, it's just

the three of us?

Where's, uh, Carl and everybody?

Well, he's up at fort Yukon.

He won't be back for a

couple weeks and, uh

Wade's got his boy tonight.

What the hell is his name, uh..

- Matthew.

- Matthew, yeah.

- Hey, are you in or what?

- Uh, duty calls.


Did I wake you?

No, I'm up.

How was your meeting?

Well, all that's left

are the signatures.

- Good.

- Drive was a stretch.

Where are you now?



I think I might go to bed.



All I'm saying is

you have to have options.

That's, that's all.

Without options, you're gonna

end up finding yourself...

- you young kids, you're only out chasin' a buck.

- Well..

Y... you don't know the meaning

of the word principle.

A man's gotta have principles. Am I right?

- That's right.

But think about how much money

you'd make selling this?

Oh, excuse me if

I'm mistaken, but, uh..

People still need to eat

and drink, yeah?

- Alright, but think about the competition, huh?

- Heh.

- You got, you got..

- Are we gonna finish this hand?

Yeah, big... big corporations

and... and chains

franchises breathing

down your neck.


We've got to move

with the times.

Now, when we have a

republican in the white house

come November,

I'll tell you this..

What the f*ck

are you talkin' about?


We can only hope.

And I'll drink to that.

- Cheers.

- How do you live with yourself?


This hand will never

change, will it?

Gah.. Uh, excuse me,

we're closed.

- Uh, fucking kids. No respect for anyone.

- I got it.

No, no, no. No, no, don't do

anything, just... Lou, stop.

Maybe you didn't

hear our friend..

Can I have

the early bird special?


The early bird special?

With a glass of water, please.

You need to go right now.

Mm.. No.

I can't.

Uh... I'm hungry.

Maybe you're not understanding

what I'm saying.

Do you, do you have a wife

that you have to

get home to, Mitchel?

Is it Mitchel?

Is your name Mitchel?

Do I know you?

I don't know.

Just be straight with me.

I'm being straight with you.

Can I have

the early bird special?


Get the f*ck out right now.

Get the f*ck out right now.

One, two.

So, what's goin' on?

What the hell was that about?

Why'd you speak

to him like that?

I'd have done a lot

more given the chance.

Well, who the hell was he?

I don't know. I don't

think he was from here.

He was, uh..

Maybe we should call it a night.


I told you we're closed.

- Morning, sunshine.

- Hey, Sam.

Is this too loud?

Not even a little bit.

- Coffee fresh?

- Made it this morning.

Ah, you're an angel,

mags. Heaven sent.

- Tell you that too much?

- Nope.

That's a good thing.

Want to know why?

- Why? - 'Cause I ain't

never gonna quit.

- Good morning.

- Good morning.

- Where's Rosie?

- She's on cleaning duty.

- No school today?

- Yeah, not till 9:30.

Oh, I got another

complaint about room 128.

Hey, Sam, I was wondering

could I pick up

a few extra shifts

before the holidays?

- Thinkin' about goin' on a trip.

- Trip?

Where you thinkin' about goin'?

- Don't know yet.

- Hmm..

Any ideas?

If I were you, I'd just

head out to spruce valley.

I was thinkin' somethin'

more like Florida.

- Oh, god.

- What?

You don't go to Florida on purpose, mags.
