Four men are playing poker in an apartment. When they catch a man cheating, the other men throw him out. Just a few moments later, the doorbell rings; when one of the players looks through the peephole, expecting to see the recently departed cheater, he is facing the barrel of a shotgun and is instantly killed. Meanwhile, in Central Park, a TV weather girl is found dead on the ground. Autopsy reveals that she drowned, even though there is no water near the crime scene.
Did You Know?
The four poker players at the original game are named after professional poker players Gus Hanson, Phil Ivey, Doyle (or his son Todd) Brunson, and Erick Lindgren. See more
Sheldon tells Danny that the umbrella was invented in China in "...during the Hui Dynasty, 326 AD." This is wrong on several counts. The dynasty in power in China at that time was the Jin (265-420). There is evidence that collapsible umbrellas date farther back, to the Han (206 BCE-220 CE) or Zhou (1046-256 BCE) Dynasties. There are also mentions of folding umbrellas or parasols in the Mesopotamian city of Nineveh (which was destroyed in 612 BCE), in Ancient Egypt and in the 5th century BCE Greece. So Sheldon was wrong about the Dynasty name, the time and may also have been wrong about the place. See more
