“You’re wasting your time, Teeter. No one’s going to eat a thing that you cook,” barks Ryan in the bunkhouse. If you’ve watched Season 4, Episode 4, then you know Teeter brings her own home cookin’ to the boys in Gator’s absence. And it’s brilliant.
“What did she make?” Jefferson White laughs. His character, Jimmy, was absent – as he’s down in Texas now. But Ian Bohen’s Ryan was present, as was Denim Richard’s Colby. And the boys weigh in on if they’d actually eat what was in Teeter’s pot.
“She cooks this big ol’ crockpot full of something, and we all come in starving,” Bohen explains. “We dish out all these bowls, and she calls it something…”
“Sumb*tch!” Teeter shouts out. Jen Landon delivers the line perfectly. In a brilliant moment, Jake Ream spits out his mouthful. Ream, a real-life- horsemaster and rancher, knows exactly what sumb*tch is.
“The joke is… It’s everything,” Bohen reveals. “Everything in the cow.” This isn’t fiction, either. It’s a true-to-ranch tradition. Waste not, want not, right? But would any of the Yellowstone actors actually eat themselves some sumb*tch?
‘Yellowstone’ Stars Question ‘Sumb*tch’
“Man… I’m not down with eating cow ear, ox tail, or tongue,” Ian Bohen says in the show’s latest Stories from the Bunkhouse. “I get it… But I don’t want it.”
“Yeah, I’m just not interested in eating… All the facets of a cow,” echoes Denim Richards with a smile.
That’s 0-for-3, then, right there. With that in mind, Jefferson White asks Richard’s what his Colby would cook in the bunkhouse instead of Teeter’s resourceful stew.
“If it was a stew, honestly I probably would’ve done a lamb stew,” he answers. Yellowstone Ranch doesn’t exactly have lambs roaming around, however, so this feels more a “Denim” answer than a “Colby” one.
Bohen and White agree, though, that they’d be “down with that.”
As for the actual Yellowstone Season 4, Episode 4, Teeter sports Whiskey Myers’ ‘Hurry Up and Wait’ tour shirt while making her stew. She’s fashioned it into a fitting crop top, and it’s the perfect cap for this perfect scene. The shirts are long sold out, but we’re willing to bet Yellowstone had no trouble procuring one for the episode (obviously).
