Synopsis


Mike finds counterfeit poker chips at the casino. The fakes are outstanding and Danny wants to help get to the bottom if it, but he's been on duty for three days straight. Mike is able to tell the difference in the chips because of the weight. Ed tells Danny to go home and wants Mike to take all the new chips off the floor.

They switch every chip on the floor and Mike finds out the only counterfeits are $100 chips. They've lost over a million dollars.

Mike only sees one dealer with a hot winning streak, but nothing unusual about the chips themselves. Ed doesn't want Monica involved because he doesn't want the cops to know anything. Ed then has Sarasvati from accounting hold off on the distribution of the daily revenue reports.

Out at the pool, two guys get in a fight over a pool chair. Danny meets his accountant, Stan (Richard Lewis) out there. While Danny and Mike are at the pool, a man approaches them because his walled had been stolen. Stan tells Danny that he wants him to sell his house.

There's a blackjack dealer, Jerry, who can't stop losing. He's worried about his job because he can't win. Monica wants Mike to move the dealer. She also freaks out about the revenue reports.

Mike looks over surveillance footage to find the counterfeiters. He sees a girl who cashes in a fake chip. He also discovers the guy who stole the man's wallet at the pool.

The wallet thief, Roger, plays a poker game with Stan, Danny, Paul Anka and Dennis Rodman. Danny takes all of Roger's money and he decides to pay him with a $100, five-team parlay.

Ed interviews the girl Mike found in the security footage. She tells Ed that she'll let him know everything if she can have Elton John tickets. Ed agrees. Sam brings the tickets and the girl tells Ed that someone named Alex gave her the chip to cash it in.

Ed finds the footage of Alex in the casino. There's no match in their databases. Ed wants the names and addresses of anyone who's been fired or quit from the chip manufacturers. Monica asks Ed why he's delaying the revenue reports. Ed gives her a b.s. explanation and she buys it.

At the sports book, Danny's parlay pays off. He wins $2,000! The only problem is he can't cash it in because he's not allowed to bet at the casino as an employee. Danny is about to take the money but the guy who lost his wallet finds them and says he had the parlay in his wallet. Danny pays the man $2,000.

At the pool, Danny meets up with Stan and asks him about Roger ' the guy from the poker game. Danny finds out that he was referred to the casino by a stripper.

Jerry keeps losing at the blackjack tables and Monica still wants to fire him. Monica asks Sam to find a cooler to kill the table. Delinda offers her services ' she's a cooler. Delinda goes over to the table but everyone keeps winning.

Mary helps Danny pack up his father's old house. Going through the bedroom, Danny comes upon a picture of his father with a woman he's never seen before.

Mike finds a man, Ben Hollis, who meets up with Alex. They exchange phony chips in the casino. Mike tells Ed that there's a chip-making machine in a truck that's being shipped.

Ed and Mike interview Ben and he says he didn't know they were fakes. But he met Alex by a semi truck just off the strip. Ed looks at satellite photos and finds two semi trucks transferring the chip-making machine back and forth.

Mike and Ed hijack one of the trucks and chase after the other in the desert. They catch it and call the cops.

Danny visits the stripper that Stan told him about. Roger is there and Danny chases him as he tries to escape. Danny runs after him throughout the neighborhood. He catches Roger and brings him in to the cops.
