  • Ray and Fraser have to protect pretty poker player Dennis Scarpa from someone who wants to kill her - but is that really the truth?

    There are two things about this episode that I'd like to point out:

    a) Francesca wants to be a cop. This was very cute and the hat thing was truly hilarious. I like Francesca and, given that Elaine became a police agent, too, I think that she would be good at it.

    b) Fraser plays poker. Now that was something that was terrifically funny. How do you teach someone who doesn't lie how to bluff? It must've been a tough night for Ray...

    So, all in all, the episode was good, but it lacked that one thing to be a really good and outstanding episode.moreless
