A thought on rewatching the dream sequence.  The one-armed man says

	We lived among the people
	I think you say "Convenience Store"
	We lived above it
	I mean it like it is, and it sounds

What is the biggest chain of convenience stores in the US?  7-11, another
gambling reference.  And in the scene at One-Eyed Jack's, Ben and Jerry
come *up* the stairs into the bordello, implying that the bordello is
above the casino.

Also (this is stretching) Ben and Jerry cross the water at night to
get to One-Eyed Jack's.  Crossing dark water is a common literary
metaphor for falling asleep and dreaming.

I think One-Eyed Jack's will come into play a lot more in the coming weeks.

She has a birthmark that looks just like a staple.
