Quotes

Paul Lassiter: I just got mugged. Yea... yea... just got mugged. He took everything. He even took my crime statistics. Somewhere in this city there's a guy walking around with my wallet, my cell phone and a big pie-chart showing how much crime has dropped. I'm sure there all getting a big laugh out of that back at the hideout.

A look into the shady side of politics.
3 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Mike is trying to find a way to save a retirement home. With the building on the market it is bound to be bought and converted into retail forcing the elderly to find a new place to live. Mike needs to find a way to save the building.

Mike knows a rich, hard-nose developer, Dan Donaldson (George Wendt), and convinces him to buy the building. Thus, Mike believes that he has save the home and the people will not have to move. But it is short lived. Dan has a reason for buying.

Dan will keep the building as a retirement home but only if Mike agrees to let him know the lowest bid on city contracts. If Mike refuses the building is set for demolition.

A good view into the workings of city politics. With an interesting story and nice acting this episode was entertaining from beginning to end. George Wendt and Alan Ruck are stand-outs in this episode. Good watch.
