9. Reminds me of Delmar's "salvation" in "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
Pete: Well I'll be a sonofabitch. Delmar's been saved.

Delmar: Well that's it, boys. I've been redeemed. The preacher's done warshed away all my sins and transmissions. It's the straight and narrow from here on out, and heaven everlasting's my reward.

Everett: Delmar, what are you talking about? We've got bigger fish to fry.

Delmar: The preacher says all my sins is warshed away, including that Piggly Wiggly I knocked over in Yazoo.

Everett: I thought you said you was innocent of those charges?

Delmar: Well I was lyin'. And the preacher says that that sin's been warshed away too. Neither God nor man's got nothin' on me now. C'mon in boys, the water is fine.

Ole Newt's sins done been warshed away by the blood of his Savior - Ronnie Raygunz. And Newt, like Delmar, is testing the water and, to Newt, it seems fine. But those muddy, swollen waters usually hide pitfalls (stumps, barbed wire, moccasins, and gators) that the terminally vain seldom consider.
