When Time Ran Out... (1980) (part 5 of 8)
Meanwhile at Mona’s, Tiny still has to get to his cockfight on this busy morning. At length, the bets are dispensed with and the fight commences. Cue Tiny, Kelly, Sam, Mona, and lots of other people urging on the roosters. But enough of that, because before the match even starts we cut away. [?]
Back at the hotel, Shelby (sporting a white suit of his own now) stops by Bob’s office to tell him he’s come from seeing Webster. He’s okay and is already back on the job. [!] Shelby says Webster told him the accident wasn’t serious, and was just a problem with the cable. Bob says that’s true, but Shelby calls him out on it. “I’m in the partner business! I can’t be in 64 resorts at the same time! I have to rely on what my partners tell me! Up to a point. And if I come to feel they’re lying, I call in the cards!”
“Do it!” screams Bob. See, that kind of comment would be a little suspicious to me. Bob calls Webster up at the crater to settle the matter. He asks him what the latest readings are.
