First, the latest news:

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usA Web site has counted “The Number of Fucks In Deadwood”: “HBO’s series Deadwood had a reputation for salty dialogue even before the first episode aired. It was nearly impossible, they said, to keep count of the number of f-words spoken during each program. We took it as a challenge” [Photo: Al Swearengen played by Ian McShane]:

  • Total fucks in series:  1406
  • Cumulative series FPM:  1.41
  • Total fucks in Season Two:  575
  • Average fucks per episode:  95.8

The Deadwood mining camp is peopled with the profane and violent men — and women — who occupy the fragile frontier between civilization and savagery.” [Photo: Joanie Stubbs, madame of the Chez Ami, played by Kim Dickens]

Episode 19: E.B. Was Left Out

Tolliver enlists Lee to clean up Wolcott’s mess. Stubbs confides in Utter, who overreacts when Wolcott “steps on his toe.” Swearengen meetsImage Hosted by Alma [PHOTO] to inform her of a Pinkerton agent in camp; she and Bullock confer about her bank — and other expanding prospects. Tolliver’s try at damage control backfires when he asks Swearengen to convene a Camp Fathers’ meeting, while the Mayor is chagrined to be excluded. Wolcott summons Utter to barter Hickok’s last letter in exchange for information about Stubb.

Great lines from last week’s episode:

Sol: “If you keep this up we’re going to fight, and you’ll have to work by yourself while I convalesce.”

Doc Cochran to Swearengen: “You, Al, are an object lesson in the healing powers of obstinacy and hostile disposition.”

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usAl: “You looked out for yourself against the chance I would die.”

Farnum [PHOTO]: “I never wished for that outcome. But I am a born follower.”

Commissioner Jarry: “And you, Mr. Wolcott, I find you the severest disappointment of all.”
Wolcott: “Often to myself as well.”
