Episode Summary

A Fire alarm causes the trading floor to evacuate. Marty demands everyone return to work in order to sell a large block of shares he just got, and fires all of those who don't return. This of course ends up skrewing him the next day when half of his employees don't show up for work.

Sally is concerned that the SEC may uncover an impropriety at Gardner/Ross, now that her father is incarcerated. She orders Marty to cease any and all trades that might be considered immoral, or unethical, even though they are all legal. He refuses and demands she either fire him, or get off his floor.

Jack leaks a news story to the paper that Gardner/Ross is about to announce a major buyout deal. He sets forth to earn his pay by organizing a buyout of a smaller company, on behalf of a larger company. The only problem is that he has neither a buyer, nor seller. With only 4 days to go before the target date he must convince the owner of a large airline company to buy a new upstart company that has created a revolutionary type of GPS System.
Unfortunately the CEO is a big time recluse that won't speak to anyone. Jack finds Ayn Krywarik, Gardner/Ross' best broker, works with this elusive CEO nearly everyday. Ayn loses a bet, and agrees to introduce Jack.

Adam begins negotiations with a British Lord regarding the privatization of the last part of British Rail. Adam conscripts D'Arby to accompany him to London for a meeting about the deal, which unfortunately falls through once they return.

An old friend of Marty (Benny) asks for a job. Sally agrees to hire him, provided Marty discontinue his 'shadowy' trades.

Jack is able to negotiate the deal with the eccentric CEO, afterwards, him and Anne share a celebratory kiss. Ayn puts the breaks on, announcing that "The aircraft has not come to a complete stop".moreless
