The scene opens with a biker group coming into Banshee. One motorcyclist with a blacked out helmet passes by them. The motorcyclist tails a Brinks Security truck. It is Job. He calls up Lucas and tells him that the Brinks van is scheduled like clockwork and if they are going to hit this, they are going to have to do it smart. The Brinks truck is going to the Casino. Lucas and Sugar watch as Longshadow and Alex both come out to inspect it. Sugar speaks up and Job doesn’t like that they became a committee all of a sudden and that Sugar has joined the team. Job says that they need to go to the city and rob banks rather than stagecoaches. Job clearly doesn’t like being in Banshee and makes his discuss known to a bunch of cows. ..

Episode Quotes
Lucas: (answering the phone) Yeah?
Job: In at the county line. Seventeen minutes since they got off 80. You should have them in a bout thirty seconds.
Lucas: No stops?
Job: Same route, four days running...does this entire town smell like cow shit?!
Lucas: Yeah, you've got to stay upwind.

Dean Xavier: I've been sent here to monitor the situation until the Grand Jury is in.
Lucas: You want to keep an eye on things? That's your business. Just do it at a safe distance.
Dean Xavier: Well, from what I hear about you, that would have to be pretty damn far.

Lucas: Jesus, you look like shit.
Sugar: Yeah, I've been hit worse.

When Job gets off the phone with Lucas, while on his motorcycle, he turns his lead to look a the pasture and swears at the cows. The camera angle then changes and the cows are suddenly very close to the fence.
