Earl realizes he hasn't always paid his taxes and adds paying his taxes to his list. While Randy gets himself a moped, Earl calculates how much he has to pay the government but it turns out he can't pay the money because the government didn't ask for it, which means Earl now has to find an alternative way to pay the government the tax money back. His attempts to pay the money involve him trying to fix a hole in the road, being mistaken for a prisoner and climbing an old water tower with Randy.

When Earl is working together with the chain gang he takes off his shirt and is therefore mistaken as an inmate as well. He gets on the bus and leaves his flannel at the roadside. Later to the end he is wearing that shirt again and has his list back as well, which is always pocketed in his chest pocket. See more
That's a cool moped, Randy. It's like a motorcycle had sex with a bicycle.
