Confrontation with Roddy Piper, who brings Brisco a mini-teepee he bought in the airport in Pittsburgh. Piper says he wears a kilt and is proud of his Scottish heritage, but Brisco doesn't appear to be proud of his American Indian heritage becasue he doesn't wear feathers and isn't a chief. "I know you're not good enough to be a chief, don't get me wrong now..."
