Is Lizard Lick Towing up for sale?
Apparently Lars Dixon thinks so—or, at least, would like it to be.
Why Amy got so upset at his request to make her an offer for the place at the outset, who knows—he wasn’t there to repo the place, after all, just make an offer which could be turned town.
He did, however, leave Ron a pool table that Ron half-heartedly turned down, but ended up on his property, anyway. And, although Amy would not take Dixon’s offer, Ron did—and the discussion was a bit less heated when he showed the apparently large number to Amy.
“That’s a lot of money,” Amy said, looking a bit stunned.
“That’s more money than me and you will ever make in our lifetime,” Ronnie said.
“So, is it up for sale?” Amy asked.
Talking to Bobby later, Ron was back to the “offended” tone.
“Can you believe the audacity of that Lars guy? ... Even a dog knows the difference in being stepped on and kicked, and I feel like that boy just kicked me.”
Of course, had the guy went into the office and lowballed the price, it would be easy to understand why the couple would be offended. After all, as Ron pointed out, Lizard Lick Towing is his life’s work, something he built from the ground up, making it into a success. But, apparently Dixon gave them an excellent offer, plus, as Bobby said, a “sweet pool table.”
After a hard repo—one where Ronnie’s truck was literally shot up—Ronnie began having second thoughts.
“Maybe it is time for me to get out. … I’m just tired of being beat down, I’m tired of fightin’ every day. … I miss having a life I can enjoy.”
Not just that, but Amy pointed out that business had slowed up since Dixon appeared—perhaps he was undercutting their business and prices?
Snake Ready to Swallow the Lizard?
Dixon's underhanded intentions were proven when he beat them to a repo—actually smiling and waving as he drove off with the repo they had went to get.
Dixon denied that he was cutting in on their accounts when Ronnie and Bobby confronted him later, but then issued a very thinly veiled threat: “You only get one shot at this deal, and then it’s all-out war. … You’re making the biggest mistake of your life; you’re gonna walk away with nothing,” he said as Ronnie and Bobby—or, as Lars called them, “Tweedledee and Tweedledumber,” walked out of the offices of Dixon Enterprises.
By the end of the day, Amy was caving. “Have you ever given any consideration to his offer?”
Showing her the Lizard Lick Towing sign, he explained to her what the business meant to him: “A lifetime dedication.”
But, she did not look convinced. However, after witnessing Dixon trying to steal another Lizard Lick Towing repo first hand—and watching Dixon causing the car to be repo’d by no one as it sped away—she got a real taste of what was going on with the snake named Lars Dixon.
“This is war,” Ronnie declared.
