Hi

I have just watched one episode of "Deadwood" .

I don´t speak very well english so can anyone tell me
what exactly means the expression " That whore is marked? " ... well ... some guy is banging her and goes out to another room and says that.

I don't remember the scene or that specific term being used either. It certainly could have been, but I don't recall it.

I don't remember that line either, but I'm wondering if he's refering to the infamous scene with the ugly naked dude in the 2nd episode. He was "banging" a girl and then went into another room sans clothes.

If it is an episode from the first season, maybe he was talking about the whore having smallpox.

I think he meant she is marked for death. The old ones believe that when one is about to die a mark is placed on them so Mr. Death will know who to kill. This term is also used by gangster and low people as a way to say a person is about to die usually by someone of power. For example a small time hood bangs the Kingpins daughter. One might say the hood is marked for death because when the Kingpin hears of it he is going have him killed.

Well, I found a website that has transcripts of all the Season 1&2 episodes and there is nothing close to a line like this. So I'm wondering if maybe you just misheard the line.

Yes !!! It´s exactly that scene.

Before the smallpox issue ...

I think he meant she is marked for death. The old ones believe that when one is about to die a mark is placed on them so Mr. Death will know who to kill.

I suppose it´s not about this ...

From the transcript :

Tom: This snatch is bendin’! (Laughing – Al still has Phil by the collar, pinned down on the floor – they both look at Tom, frozen in place.) What, what happened?

Phil: Ah, tipped over.

Al: And I’m helpin’ him up. Put your iron away now, Tom.

Tom: Ah, not yet! Burned it at the flag T! (Heads back to the whore’s room)


It´s this scene but I suppose there´s something missing here ...

Can anyone check the dvd ? .... please ...

You've got it already. Al tells him to put his "iron" away and he walks out saying he's "marked" the whore, as in branded her with his "iron".
