M&M received help from Mark and Bryon after the Shepard boys and their gang wanted to beat him up. Mark, Byron and M&M hung out at Charlie’s bar, where Mark and Bryon hustled at the pool table in order to make a living. On one particular day, Charlie, the owner of the bar, informed Mark and Bryon that M&M was looking for them. Mark and Byron were able to find M&M before he was attacked by Curly Shepard and the Greaser gang. M&M was grateful that Mark and Byron saved him and that they were able to stop Curly Shepard from picking on him.
