    Our main story had a cheat betting on the Horse races screened at the Montecito, the only problem was that after a few winning rounds Cooper starts getting suspicious and calls in Danny and Mike to help him work out if the guy is cheating or it's just plain luck, naturally nothing is just plain luck at the Montecito.



    Mike and Piper who are of course married but who think everyone else thinks the marriage was annulled have there first Mr and Mrs Cooper night together which doe's not go as both expected ( no fireworks ) and try to ignore each other all day without too much success, eventually everything sorts it's self out with the help of the housekeeping closet. Sam had to baby-sit the mother of a whale who only wanted to play bingo ( the mother not the whale ), what a surprise when we find out Sam Marquez is a bingo queen herself and subsequently wins a couple of hundred dollars, grandma whale is not happy and calls Sam a cheat which also gets grandson whales back up, instead of apologising Sam offers grandma whale another chance at a bigger bingo prize with Delinda as a judicator in case of more suspected cheating, again this being Las Vegas not all ends well for grandma whale, hey but at least Delinda had a good time. As you can tell we had a lot going on in this weeks episode but for me it was Polly's acting as an expected mother that was the highlight of the episode.



    Polly's portrayal as a pretend pregnant women just to help Danny get his hospital run time down to the second was hilarious, from the very beginning when she came out with a cushion stuffed up her blouse and saying her ( lady's part ) was sore then falling on the floor only to have Danny drag her by the leg up to when she was arrested was out of this world, I did write once in a forum post that her character was annoying and unmatchable but I take my words back, Polly is brilliant and an excellent addition to the series.moreless

    • (First visit to the bingo parlor)
      Sam: So what else do you like to do?
      Robbie: Bingo is it. This living-to-a-ripe-old-age thing is a crock.
      Sam: (Chuckles) Why's that?
      Robbie: Where do I start? I've got arthritis everywhere but my hair. When I die, I'm personally taking up the arthritis invention with God. I can't drink anymore.
      Sam: What?!
      Robbie: I love my martinis. My friends are dead. Life sucks except for bingo.

      Delinda: Yes. Do you have any children?
      Robbie: (Chuckles) Grown and long gone. Now I've got grandsons who already make millions. (To Sam) What about you?
      Sam: Kids? I'm not old enough.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • As Polly is hauled away in the police car, she pleads for Mike and Danny to get her out because she saw Shawshank is a reference to the 1994 feature film Shawshank Redemption which is set in a prison.

    • Mitch's background check on Pete Skinner includes that "he supposedly played a little football somewhere." This alludes to Terry Bradshaw's NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1970s when he led the Steelers to four Super Bowl championships.
