Luck will not help because the men are not Gandor Family, so the thug leader promises to join his organization in exchange for their assistance. Luck asks the men’s leader, Dallas Genoard, if he ever thought of why they never asked him to join them. He tells Dallas they might have thought the Family feared him because they didn’t interfere with his outrageous behavior, but the real reason is that they didn’t even see the slightest use for him. Luck says that thanks to Dallas’ group of robbers, the police are too busy dealing with them. Dallas claims Luck doesn’t know anything about them. Luck tells him that he does know that Dallas was done in by a man much younger than him, when Berga Gandor arrives and throws Dallas and his group out.
