Maddie, an aging but still attractive former prostitute, has been imported by Joanie Stubbs to serve as Madame for a new brothel. Cy Tolliver, realizing that he's not only losing Joanie but now facing stiff competition, is enraged. "Suck some pr*cks if you like," he tells Maddie, "and keep whatever they give you. My way of saying welcome." "Any blind ones out there?" Maddie shoots back with self-deprecating humor. In Maddie, Tolliver has encountered a formidable foe.
