Brent: Look, I'm sorry about getting you out of bed, Wes, but this is an emergency.
Hank: I thought you died, or moved to Winnipeg, or something.
Wes: No, I've always been here. You guys just didn't seem too interested in calling me.
Hank comments that he thought Wes had died or moved to Winnipeg. Wes was a regularly recurring character in the first three seasons, then was completely absent for the first half of the fourth season. This absence caused fans to speculate (on chat boards) as to the reason for his absence; the first rumour was that he had died. His appearance in two episodes of season four put that rumour to rest (for the most part), but then a second rumour arose that he had moved to Winnipeg, and this was why he was not appearing in more episodes.
