Storyline

In a show told mostly in flashback, Rob and Laura invite Jerry and Millie Helper, Buddy Sorrell, and a new couple, the Gregorys (a former D.A. and his wife) over to play poker. When Laura accidentally damages one of the cards, she gets a replacement deck, not realizing she's chosen a marked deck that Rob was using earlier to show Ritchie some card tricks. Right before winning the last hand, Rob realizes that the cards are marked and tries to figure out how to get out of the situation gracefully. Written by aldanoli / edited by statmanjeff

Goofs

During the poker game, Beth says she has three queens. Lou is upset at having only jacks over tens, which is a full house. A full house beats three of a kind in poker. He should win the hand, but in the show she wins the hand. Maybe he was supposed to say "jacks and tens," which is only two pair, but blew his line. See more »
