Plot hole: When Jerry thinks the investment he has proposed to Wade will work out, he tells Shep he may not need the help of the two kidnappers he put him in touch with. Shep then tells Jerry that he only put him in touch with, and vouched for, one of the kidnappers: Gaear. He makes it very clear that he has never heard of and does not vouch for Carl Showalter. However, at the beginning of the movie, Carl specifically mentioned Shep, saying "Shep didn't tell us much..." etc.) And when Shep is told by Marge that involvement in the kidnapping/murders could put him back in Stillwater, he knows exactly where to find Carl to give him a thorough beating. When he shows up, Carl even recognizes him ("Shep, what the Hell are you doing, I'm banging that girl.") Shep obviously knew Carl, and had no reason to hide it from Jerry, as Gaear was the more dangerous of the two.
Question: I've heard that the kidnappers names are Carl and Gaear. Where in the film is this fact established?
