— Fat Man to Little Boy
Burt Shlubb aka Fat Man is a low rent criminal for hire, pairing with the Little Boy.
The duo were guarding Roark Junior's getaway car while he was attempting to rape Nancy Callahan; Fat Man expressed his will driving the car but Little Boy dissuaded him. John Hartigan disabled them and then killed the twin guards Lenny and Benny.
Eight years later, the pair are sent to Mimi's motel in order to collect Hartigan's body, hanged by Junior. However they find him alive, who hits them from behind, and they tell him that Junior went to the Farm.
The duo are tasked to get rid of a corpse (wrapped in carpet) dumping it in the river. Shlubb's boots are in horrible shape, and he wishes to steal the shoes off the corpse
Klump tells him that they're supposed to leave the body as it is. Shlubb disagrees and pulls the boots off, to discover that there are no feet in them, and a ticking sound rings through their ears. This was apparently a test, and the two buffoons get thrown several yards away as the explosion hits. It seems they failed the test miserably.
Dwight McCarthy stumbled upon the hanging corpse of Fargo in his apartment, just killed by the Fat Man. Dwight knocked him out. Under a barrage of sniper shots from Little Boy, Dwight and Mary reach their car and speed off. Although they successfully elude the pair.
While Dwight McCarthy was digging up information about a recent mob hit at a small diner, he goes into a bar near where the hit happened and tries to charm Peggy. He also spots Fat Man and Little Boy, which makes his job easier later on. It's revealed that Bruno, the target, was killed by Vito; one of Don Magliozzi's nephews and hitmen in retaliation on Don Magliozzi's part as Bruno killed his beloved niece years ago. With that information, Dwight leaves the bar and is confronted by Vito and some other hitmen who came when Fat Man and Little Boy alerted them someone was digging around for information.
