The McCulloughs are far from aligned, but the party must go on.
As a gathering of potential oil investors wait downstairs, Eli and his two sons, Phineas and Pete, discuss transitioning the family cattle business into oil. Phineas briefs Eli on the investors, encouraging him to sell the “virgin potential of the land.”
In this talked about scene from the two-part Series Premiere, Pete attempts to stand up to his father. He deems their business plan “a swindle,” because they haven’t found a drop of oil on the land. He proposes they stay focused on cattle, something stable.
Eli brushes cattle off as stagnant: “In this life if you don’t move forward you die.”
