- Joey assured a distraught Libby that she would be looked after, but he resisted her request to call the police to report her missing cash and jewelry.
- Fiona had the fighting Irish spirit and agreed to do a bit of friendly gambling with Frankie, who was later taken to task by Joey for allowing non-monetary game play.
- When Peggy Sue told Audrey she had come into some money, Audrey assumed it was an inheritance. Both women were aghast when a heart-broken Jonesy announced he was intent on quitting his job and leaving town.
- Rudy proposed marriage to Libby; she accepted on the condition of a long and secret engagement.
- Joey and Bobbie moved the cash from Libby’s suitcase into the desk drawer - with plans pay most of the debt owed to Uncle Tony. They then decided someone would have to sneak her suitcase – now filled with decks of cards - back into her penthouse.
- Vincent and Frankie taught Audrey the showgirl a spectacular solo dance routine called the Great Norwegian Ostrich, which she debuted to much acclaim on the Camel’s Toe Show Lounge.
When Vincent found piles of cash in the office drawer, he pocketed several stacks in hopes of booking big name entertainers.
- Peggy Sue told Joey and Bobbie she wanted to rent the penthouse, and also to quit two of her three jobs. Intrigued by her newfound wealth, they agreed to her demands, but only if she found a replacement.

Where we left off. April 26.. and where we begin Oct. 25!
After a misunderstanding with Libby in the double-booked penthouse, Uncle Tony hid her suitcase with the remaining insurance money under the drinks cart.
Frankie, under suspicion for collaborating with Fiona, was relieved to be out of the hot seat. Joey and Bobbie were pleased when Rudy re-appeared, as they had feared him ‘whacked’.
Vincent felt confident that he had gotten away with altering the books to increase his entertainment budget.
With advice from the maid on where best to hide valuables, Libby tucked a few stacks of her ill-gotten insurance cash – and her not-lost earrings – upon her person, then attended Johnny Taupe’s exciting performance in the Camel’s Toe Lounge.
The accountant followed his nose – and found Libby’s suitcase with the rest of the stolen insurance money hidden in the penthouse suite. He took it and showed it to Joey; they were both happy to think this cash payment might be enough to placate Uncle Tony.
While tidying the showroom, Peggy Sue found a jewelry box under the seat Libby had occupied. Uncle Tony made her hand it over and gave Peggy Sue – as a tip – $50,000 in cash. Not realizing the earrings were the famed Pink Diamonds of Tanzania, he gave them as a gift to Audrey in exchange for a quick fling.
Insurance man Lloyd Bentley re-appeared on the scene with a head injury, but he was not buying Libby’s story that he had been robbed by a stranger. He angrily accused her of fraud, and while she was being accosted, Rudy – who believed his crush on Libby was mutual - intervened and beat the poor man to death.
Peggy Sue took a moment in the spotlight to happily warble about her unexpected good fortune.
Fiona told Joey and Bobbie she was checking out (with her massive winnings) and firmly refused their insistent offers to stay.
After the kissing incidents, Jonesy figured that his marriage proposal had been rejected, so pondered going home to Cleveland.
Libby appeared to have a breakdown upon realizing she had lost everything – her insurance money, her earrings, her savings and even her home in Beverly Hills - which had been stolen by her agent. Joey kindly offered let her stay on at the hotel...
