a~ Thinking it was a ‘skit’, Libby playfully said “I do”, but was shocked to learn the wedding ceremony was real. She frantically sought loopholes and advice from Fiona.

~ Ethel Merman dazzled on the Show Lounge, and paid a courtesy visit to Libby.
~ Peggy Sue and Frankie impulsively stole all the sets of accounting books from the office; Bobby was floored at what appeared to have been a break-in.

~ Libby was incensed to discover Peggy Sue alone in her bed, and accused her of attempted burglary. A food fight ensued, which ended in a detente.
~ Frankie told Joey that Virginia said, a few weeks ago, she had overheard Libby and Rudy discussing a murder. A great deal of confusion then ensued over who may have killed who.

~ Vincent reprimanded Audrey for giving Virginia her first taste of alcohol.

~ Libby sang ‘Funny Valentine’, which Rudy took as his cue to assemble his entire bridal party on the show lounge stage, in order to surprise Libby with a wedding...
~ Peggy Sue pushed her way into the office to discover a bloodied man on the floor. Uncle Tony admitted to having beaten him. Invigorated by this brush with violence, Peggy Sue was wildly passionate in the bedroom - but Uncle Tony was disconcerted by her unexpected behaviour.
~ Bobbie returned to his office to discover the stranger passed out in his office, and had no idea what had happened. When Orrin awoke he was startled and attacked Bobbie, so Bobbie had no choice but to beat the tar out of the stranger a few times.
~ Fiona returned to the Casino and was surprised to learn of the numerous job changes amongst the staff.
~ Rudy set about planning a surprise wedding, enlisting people to be part of the bridal party – but Joey and Vincent remained unconvinced that Libby was really his fiancée. Finding Libby’s Pink Diamonds of Tanzania in his pants, Rudy forgot why he had them, and handed the valuable earrings over to Vincent.
~ Libby decided she would be the new headliner at the Camel’s Toe Lounge and performed a song with a Spanish theme. Bellhop Jonesy Ford also took to the stage to tell jokes, but had less success.
~ Encouraged by Audrey, Virginia had her first taste of alcohol. A tipsy Virginia blurted out to Frankie that she had overheard Rudy and Libby discussing a murder, but Frankie may not have understood the significance of what she was saying.
~Joey got Frankie to swap jobs with him, so Frankie had to clean the Penthouse Suite while Joey took on dealing cards in the Casino.

~ Uncle Tony was drunkenly despondent over his divorce from Marie. He decided to take over hand-on management of the Casino, and offered former boss Joey a job as janitorial staff. Joey was relieved to accept, as it meant he wasn’t going to get whacked.
~ Rudy realized this job change would put Joey under his direct supervision. Rudy made a slip and revealed to Joey that he was secretly engaged to Libby. Bobbie was chuffed to be promoted to Executive Accountant.
