Early mention that he didn't care, since he was now drunk. Rusty explains the whole point of the wet T-shirt contest is that you moisten up the T-shirt.

Early then mentions "If you just want some mindless robot to hold a limbo stick, you might as well get yourself a stand with a peg on it!". Rusty claims that he will, yet Early responds with a "Well, please don't", because he then asks how he is gonna get himself some free drink tickets. Rusty assumes he would pay a cover like everyone else. Early then claims that he is gonna carry them both, as he moves Granny and the PA set, after putting the stick on the said set.
