Cold Open[edit | edit source]
“Pack o' coyotes come right up the back porch the other night, 'cause your dog's in heat and you know those fuckin' yellow-eyed bastards go right through the screen door if they're horny.” - Wayne
“You left the barn door open after chores one time and your dad thought you were stoned, but you haven't smoked the electric lettuce since grade eight.” — Wayne
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
The town descends into a revenge-fueled brawl, thanks to the Skids and their shady business practices. It's an old-fashioned donnybrook.
Plot Summary[edit | edit source]
Tanis and the natives make a deal with Stewart and the Skids to sell them cheap cigarettes, "a dime a dart," for only for personal consumption. A young native sees them selling them for a dollar ("buck a dart") and reports to Tanis "they're fuckin' ya."
The Hicks meet with Katy's contact, Wally, at his home, and they make a deal. He warns them to stay out of the path of his estranged daughter—Tanis. Daryl finds Tanis attractive. Wayne thanks Katy for making the arrangements.
The Letterkenny Shamrocks have had a bad defeat, and the Coach is enraged. Reilly notices the rookie is high on meth, and is outraged as they observe that Letterkenny has become a meth town. He and Jonesy agree to make Stewart pay.
Tanis arrives in Letterkenny with a large crew. Stewart and Devon prepare to fight, but Tanis laughs, and says Letterkenny will burn until they are paid what they are owed.
Back at the farm, the Hicks are building the new produce stand with the proceeds. Dan admits he is attracted to Katy, and flees into the field as the others watch. He stops after a short distance, admitting "Too fat to run."
Reilly and Jonesy, wearing pantyhose over their heads (and ballcaps), discuss how they will hurt Stewart and his buddies. Tiring of waiting for them, they go to trash the basement, only to find it already trashed. They decide to seek out the Skids and have a donnybrook.
During the night, Wayne and Katy rush outside to find their new produce stand on fire, presumably set by Tanis' gang. The next morning Wally loads up his truck and pays Wayne for the goods, but warns them Tanis is owed money by fellas from Letterkenny, and until she is paid she intends to make it "everyone's problem".
The hockey players find the Skids in the parking lot and prepare to brawl, but they are interrupted by Tanis and her crew. Wayne and his crew (including the Ginger and Boots) then arrive to get Tanis and the natives to stop the destruction. They agree that Wayne will pay Tanis $5,000—most of the proceeds from the marijuana sale—for her to leave town.
Tanis agrees to the arrangement, but stops to insult Stewart viciously. Katy steps in to defend Stewart and kicks Tanis in the crotch, setting off a donnybrook in which the townsfolk defeat the natives. As the natives leaves, Wayne slips the money (which had been dropped during the fight) back into Tanis' hand, upholding their deal.
The Hicks, hockey players, and Skids all go to MoDean's for a post-brawl drink, which Gail serves on the house. While enjoying their newfound camaraderie, however, Tyson walks in the door and demands to know who the toughest guy in Letterkenny is. Wayne dutifully stands up.
