Lester has an unexpected encounter, Malvo changes course, and a new investigation leads Molly down a familiar path.
Did You Know?
The title "A Fox, a Rabbit, and a Cabbage" is an old riddle which FBI Agent Pepper (Keegan-Michael Key
) asks FBI Agent Budge (Jordan Peele
) in the FBI file room. The answer to the puzzle is that, the man first takes the rabbit with him as fox won't eat the cabbage, then come back and take cabbage with him and bring back rabbit from other end and keep the rabbit and take fox to the other end, hence fox and cabbage are safely on other end and finally later come back and take rabbit with him, hence safely taking all three to the other end.

When Agents Pepper and Budge are discovering the connection between Malvo's ambush in Fargo and Officer Solverson's phone messages to the FBI, Pepper takes the note from Budge and asks the other agent, "Where is Bemidji?" Given that Agents Pepper and Budge have likely been stationed in Fargo, North Dakota, for at least six months, one might assume that neither of them would need to ask where Bemidji, Minnesota, is located as it's only a two-hour drive due east. However, Bemidji only has a small population of 15,000 people, hardly an urban metropolis, and it has no federal law enforcement connections. The agents have been purposely stuck in the file room as punishment and were not given any assignments that would have permitted travel. It's conceivable that while they may have heard the name Bemidji, they did not know exactly where it was. See more
Oh, mick mike. I just keep pinching myself.
Well, honey, you've earned it. It's like my mama always said, "boys, if you like the milk, buy the freakin' cow."
Oh, that's so sweet. Well, I am gonna stick my whole thumb up your ass later.
