      While on their way to Austin, Texas, Ungalow thinks about a girl that he had a crush on in high school, Karen Kaiser. Apparently, her marriage didn't turn out so well, as it was annulled due to the fact that her husband turned out to be gay. Karen has also moved back in with her parents at their home in Bishop Flats. That night, Space and Ungalow, or Kevin and Henry meet two guys- Devin and Harvey. The guys are very similar to Space and Ungalow. They're lives are practically the same except Devin and Harvey are going from the west coast to the east coast and Space and Ungalow are going from the east coast to the west coast. Not only are they're names similar to each other, but they also drive a black Buick Wildcat. These guys claim to have met Cassidy and invite Space and Ungalow to join them for a drink. The guys learn that Devin has a girlfriend similar to Claire, named Clara. Clara ended up sleeping with Devin's best friend RC, and getting pregnant, only to later lose the baby in the end. Exactly like Space and Ungalow, Devin and Harvey are looking for their friend RC who left California and is out somewhere on the road. However, there is one difference between the two groups. Ungalow and Space are looking for Cassidy to make peace, but Devin and Harvey are looking for RC in order to get back at him- with a brutal beating. They even have a crash test dummy that rides along with them in the back of their Wildcat. Harvey also talks about a girl that he liked back in high school, just like Ungalow's Karen Kaiser. However, it turns out that the girl Harvey liked committed suiced. The guys finally decide that they've had enough of Devin and Harvey and can't wait to get away from them. Ungalow is worried about Karen- she may be depressed, based on the story about the girl that Harvey liked, so he calls and leaves a nice message for Karen on her answering machine. Space and Ungalow take off in their red Wildcat. Meanwhile, Devin and Harvey take off in their black Wildcat.

      While in Texas, Space and Ungalow run out of gas in the desert. They're both tired, hungry, thirsty, and really getting on each other's nerves. They push the car all the way to Gordo's Gas Station, but find it empty when they arrive. There's a note on the door stating that Gordo has gone to get gas. After hours of waiting, the boys give up and decide to go and find some help. When they return to the gas station, they find Pucho, a Latino man, trying to steal the Wildcat. Pucho tells Space and Ungalow that he was just trying to help them with the car, but Pucho is a little too suspicious for them to believe him. They hear a noise coming from the trunk, and after opening it, find Fortunato. Fortunato is a Mexican man who Pucho says is a deaf mute. Pucho tells the guys that he is being paid to smuggle the man across the border and take him to the north. He also says that his car broke down a few miles away, but they can use some of the gas to get the Wildcat started. Space volunteers to make the trek to the car with Pucho. Ungalow stays behind with Fortunato, who is now handcuffed to a railing. After finally making it to the car, Space and Pucho siphon some gas from the gas tank. They also drink some Mexican tequila, but that turns out to not be such a good idea- Pucho is even worse drunk. Meanwhile, Ungalow learns that Fortunato isn't really that helpless. He can't speak English fluently, but he can repeat things that he's heard. Ungalow feels sorry for the guy, and is angry at the way that he's been treated by Pucho. Meanwhile, Space has fallen asleep, and Pucho is nowhere to be seen when he wakes up. Pucho is back at the gas station and is planning to steal the Wildcat and drop of Fortunato to where he's supposed to be, so that he can get his pay. Ungalow takes off with the gas can, being chased by a knife-wielding Pucho, who eventually cuts a hole in the can. The gas leaks out, and now everyone is stuck. However, Space has an idea to fill the gas tank with tequila. The plan works. They handcuff Pucho to the railing on take off with Fortunato. They plan to drop Fortunato off with his relatives in San Antonio. As they leave, they decide not to leave Pucho handcuffed, so they toss him the key. However, they aren't going to let Pucho come with them- he can fend for himself. It turns out that he won't be left there for long. As they drive to San Antonio, they pass a gasoline truck featuring the Gordo's Gas logo on it.moreless

After arriving at the address, he knocks on the door and sees a young boy, Michael. His mother, Helen, comes to the door after a moment. Helen tells Space that her husband is no longer there and that she can't help him if he's owed money by Bill Lauglin. Space figures that his father also abandoned this second family, like he did Space's family. Insect Bob talks to Space and tells him that he should go back and talk to his brother. Space doesn't consider Michael his brother, but does go back for another visit. This time, Helen decides to invite Space into the home, seemingly knowing who he is. They talk about their experiences with Bill Lauglin, good and bad. Later, Michael comes in to find Space asleep in Helen's arms. He runs off, but Space catches him and tells him about his father. Michael figures out who Space is- his half-brother. Space returns to the bar and then decides to go back to the house to say his final goodbyes. He leaves Michael the money that his father gave him at the baseball game. He had been carrying it around with him like a piece of his father for all of these years. Michael in turn gives Space something as well, a photograph.

      While continuing their search for Cassidy, Space and Ungalow stop off in New Orleans. While walking through the streets during the day, they find a large crowd and a woman named Christy Lee who has been hit and killed by a streetcar. They continue on visiting the sights of New Orleans, including a fine New Orleans meal, where they have nearly a dozen different courses. Later that night, they stop at a local bar and meet two girls, Tiffany and Joanne, that continually dance to the hit Poison song "Every Rose Has It's Thorn." After Space and Ungalow figure out that they're not going to get anywhere with the girls, they leave the bar. After sleeping for almost the entire day, Space and Ungalow, still hung over, decide to visit the Chicken Man's voodoo shop. They meet the Chicken Man who gives Ungalow a potion to cure his hangover. He also tells the guys that Cassidy was once in New Orleans, but is now on his way to Austin, Texas. Tiffany and Joanne show up at the shop, and they all go out for some more beer. The Chicken Man invites the four to come and watch a special ceremony at the swamp. At first, Space isn't sure that he wants to join in, but ends up going along. The Chicken Man gives them a potion (everyone drinks it but Space). Then they proceed to take a boat ride and when they arrive at the shore, are instructed to strip down to their underwear. They then are taken to a clearing where there is a group of naked men and women, as well as The Great Zombi. While the group is involved in a chant, the drum player, Uncle Jones, uncovers the body of Christy Lee inside of the group's circle. Uncle Jones also says that the heart of a white woman will be able to bring her back to life. Uncle Jones uses a leech to on Tiffany's stomach to take blood. This totally freaks Ungalow and Space out, and they run off into the woods and finally make it to a swamp. After they calm down, they realize that they have to go back and save the girls from being sacrificed, or from what ever is going to happen to them. They try to get back to the clearing, but aren't familiar enough with the area. While still in the swamp, a raft carrying the dead body of Christy Lee floats by, along with a jar containing a red object. The boys finally find their way back to the clearing, but the girls and the Chicken Man are gone. Instead, Uncle Jones and the Great Zombi are sitting and smoking. Uncle Jones tells the guys that the girls went back to town with the Chicken Man and that the heart with Christy Lee was really a boar's heart. He also reveals to the guys that they usually invite "yellow folk" to the rituals. When Space and Ungalow return to get their clothes back, they find only their wallets. The clothes were taken by the girls as payback for having stranded them.moreless
