    It was great to watch Dan butt heads with a federal bureaucrat. I loved that furious expression on Lily's face as Luster is scolding Dan and Johnny, and they are sitting there taking. You can tell she really wants to let him have it, but she chooses to bite her tongue instead. I loved Dan's scene where he explains to Luster why he does things the way that he does. The two guys that played Ernie and Teakwood were hilarious. From the horseplay, to passing the bottle back and forth, and then finally saving the day at the end. Luster was so sure they were no good, and ends up drinking buddies with them after they stop two other dudes from shooting him.moreless
