Tomorrow is his son Teddy's birthday and he thinks the best gift may be to let him forget about his father. The waitress, Sally, laughs that the best gift just happens to be the one that requires the least amount of work. Sally tells Nucky that while Tucker could be dangerous, he isn't very smart.

Narcisse confronts Dunn in the Onyx Club after everyone is gone. He is in town on new business and wants to talk about Chalky. Narcisse wants to learn how Dunn feels towards Chalky and shows Dunn heroin. He says it can also be freedom and power over men like Chalky. Narcisse offers to go with Dunn, wherever he wants to.
