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.
~ Meanwhile, Joey told Rudy that his marriage would only be legal if Libby signed the license. Rudy then sent Audrey to ask Libby for her ‘autograph’.
~ Bobby confided to Joey that he had beaten a stranger to death; his business card identified him as ‘Orrin Groat - Insurance Investigator’.
~ Vincent reprimanded Audrey for keeping rival showgirl Virginia in a tipsy/hungover state.
~ 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.
- Finding decks of cards in her returned suitcase, Libby believed these to be a clue that would lead to her stolen goods. She proposed an exchange to bewildered card dealer Frankie Zane, and later enlisted Rudy, her secret fiancée, to make the late-night rendez-vous on her behalf.
- Peggy Sue trained the new maid Virginia (who had her own unusual cleaning methods), then Peggy began her accounting apprenticeship under Bobbie de Faro.
- Rudy asked Joey and Bobbie for time off to study a law textbook, which the men perused. Rudy explained to Vincent how guests would share the Penthouse on a rotating sleep schedule.
- Vincent was delighted to finally remember Audrey’s name; Audrey the Showgirl demonstrated a talent for yodelling. Vincent noticed that the new maid was “showgirl” height, and tried to give her a promotion.
-After signing Libby’s non-disclosure agreement, Virginia misunderstood it to be a vow of silence; Fiona assumed she was mute, but was delighted to act as Libby’s personal secretary.
-Uncle Tony was irritated at the Casino’s lack of profits, blaming both Fiona for winning, Frankie for bad dealing, and Joey for poor management. He demanded a payment plan from Joey, and sent Frankie to buy a baseball bat. Joey, feeling threatened, planned to disappear for a short while.
Joey the Casino Boss arrived at the Penthouse in time to break up Jonesy and Rudy tussling over a gun. Libby claimed she had been robbed by Jonesy the Bellhop; he insisted he needed a lawyer and (foolishly) wanted it to be former pugilist Rudy.
Blackjack Dealer Frankie and Bobbie the Accountant discussed the merits of the Snow Leopard and Great Norwegian Ostrich dances, dog breeds, and dreams.
Gambler Fiona complemented Audrey the Showgirl on her new Ostrich dance, and revealed she had once been a dancer herself. When Fiona showed off some unique moves, Vincent the Entertainment Director suggested she entertain at the Seniors Matinee.
Chambermaid Peggy Sue, still excited over her $50,000 tip, tried to move into the Penthouse - but Libby mistook her shopping bag as a gift. Asked for marital advice, Libby told her to always marry for money.
Discussing new variations on her act, Audrey challenged Vincent to get her name right - and he could not.
Despite have been beaten up by Rudy in the alley, Jonesy was angry for not being paid for his Bellhop work. He tried to convince Rudy they should sue The Oasis, and later tried convince the girls that there was some kind of conspiracy.
After checking on a ‘special order’ by phone, Bobbie snuck Libby’s now-empty suitcase back into the vacant penthouse and hid it under the bed, where he also found and pocketed her remaining stash of cash. Peggy Sue came in – to clean the suite for the last time – and over martinis, Bobbie charmingly assured her of her value as an employee.
Joey tried to convince Libby that her missing cash and jewelry were likely just misplaced and not stolen, and refused to call in a Sherriff. He implied that her lost money was insurance money, which Libby denied; she insisted he conduct a search for her earrings.
Joey told Bobbie that some of the cash from his office drawer was missing and he was suspicious, and worried that $302,000 was not enough to placate their $700,000 debt. Peggy Sue came in and lied to Joey about having found someone to replace her as chambermaid.
Fiona revealed her intense dislike of lawyers to Rudy; he remained intent on becoming one, and asked his bosses for time off to go to Law School.
Vincent calmed down a worried Libby by complementing her on her role in “Agua Agua Agua”; he impulsively kissed her, then escorted her to the Penthouse suite.
