Gussie calls Lulu Hogg, fixing her nails as she asks if she can speak to Boss. Boss greets her and asks if she heard any interesting phone conversations. She tells him that it’s just one from a payphone, where a lady was talking to a man in Atlanta who was saying he would leave the country. She says the man said something about paying back a ‘fat water-buffalo’ for a crime from twenty years ago. Boss asks if there was a name and she says it sounded like ‘Fly Away’ to which Boss screams it was ‘Calloway’.

Jesse calls her from the Hogg Family home, claiming that Boss Hogg was dead and he had to make arrangements before telling her to connect him to the coffin works. After hanging up she calls Bessie Lou to inform her. She proceeds tell everyone she can about the news.
