Durant has comitted murder, and even he has no idea what to do, and is just left having a Villainous BSOD, feeling sorry for himself and overall a mess of a person. Cue Mickey walking through the door and teaching Durant how to do his business.
: I understand you're in need of a good magician. Someone who can make all your problems [[makes a coin disappear with a sleight of hand
]] disappear. I know how you feel right now. You just killed a man and you don't know what to do. Your legs barely hold up, you can't eat, not even sleep. The whiskey
...the whiskey seems to have no effect at all. (...) Now, you're not gonna run. You're not gonna call any attention to yourself. You gonna do exactly as I say, do your hear me?
(Durant spent this whole time drunkely staring into the nothing in mysery and amusement
'):....Do I hear you? (chuckles
) You're...you're a saloonkeeper, a pimp, you run a bordello for God's sake! Why would I listen to you
? He was...he was my friend.
: As far as I know, that's my job. It's gonna be some job indeed, but it'll all be alright. We're in America
. You're probably not the first person to squeeze a bit o' lead into a US Senator. No matter. The magic...(Makes the coin from before reappear
) The magic will save you this time.
An episode later, after Mickey manages to fully solve the murder situation without leaving a hint of blame to himself, even outsmarting a Boston police officer, he shares this dialogue with Durant, a crowning moment of awesome for both of them:
- Mickey then proceeds to do exactly what he promised: Saving Durant's ass without raising suspicion without breaking a sweat.
Durant: What is it that you want, [McGinnes]?
Mickey: You do understand what this means.
Durant: It obviously means had I gone to jail, your odds at prospects in Cheyenne would have dimmed considerably. Do you understand?
(Cheshire Cat Grin
): I am...but a simple irish man, seeking his fortune in the New World.
Mickey(Not threated in the least): You're threatening me? (Mickey glares, still grinning)
Durant: With a little bit of luck, you had the advantage on me. But I have been pushed aside, falsely accused, robbed, wounded and INSULTED ENOUGH! Now, if you rid yourself from these delusions, you may still have a future here. Otherwise, not. Good day, sir.
