The guys decide to have a poker game in the back room. Sam is a bit hesitant to play as he doesn't want to leave Rebecca alone in charge of the bar. Rebecca is offended by this notion, so Sam does join the poker game and leaves Rebecca in charge. Rebecca is invigorated by this challenge. One of her first challenges is that a letter comes back with insufficient postage. It is the renewal for the bar's liquor license, which has now expired because of the undelivered letter. Rebecca was supposed to send it in two weeks ago. Rebecca doesn't want Sam to know about this blunder. As Carla finds out that they can get the renewal done in person tomorrow, Rebecca does whatever she can to manage and run the bar without the license for the day. A wrench may be thrown into the proceedings by a disgruntled neighbor. By the end of the day, Rebecca's reputation as not only a competent business person, but a competent person, period, is on the line. If she's not, things could come crashing down around...

During a scene in the pool room, where the guys are playing cards, you can see the main room from in front of the set. The guys have put up a blanket over the main entrance to keep the cigar smoke from filtering out. The camera is at an angle looking out of the pool room towards the covered entrance. To the left of the blanket, you see wall, then the main room. See more »

License to Hill (#10.18)
27 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The guys are having a poker game in the pool room and Sam leaves Rebecca in charge of the bar,although he is hesitant. Rebecca wants to prove to him that he can handle her responsibility well but then fins out that they don't have a liquor license as she forgot to apply. She comes up with an idea how to make it until the end of the day when they get their license and at the end it turns out it was Sam's fault.

Good episode. I fin how they handles the situation pretty funny. Especially when Cliff got basically drunk in a placebo effect. Also great that it was Sam's fault, not Rebecca's. And Lilith was absolutely funny in this episode, one of the highlights when she acted on how strong the scotch is.
