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.
