Main Cast


Anthony is off to Grass Valley, CA, an old gold-mining town. In the middle of town is the Holbrooke Hotel, founded in 1851 and has been in continuous operation ever since. Ian Garfinkel was a musician in the bar and bought the 28-rooom hotel in 2010. Anthony pulls up and tries to work out where to park. He calls over a clerk and she admits that there is no signs indicating where to park. Anthony gets directions to the parking lot and drives around to the back...

Episode Quotes
Anthony: How did they forget the parking signs? This is going to be a long week.

Anthony: Seven chairs, every one of them I wouldn't sit on with a rubber suit.

Anthony: "Stop! Have you left anything?" You know what? A housekeeper should read that. And if they did, they would say, "I left a pee-stained pillow, I left dust, and I left my pride." Probably outside the room 'cause they didn't bring it in here.

Casey: So which one--which one did you want me to do? The function room or the patio room?
Anthony: Yes.
Casey: Damn it.

Casey: What are you doing?
Anthony: Designing.
Casey: Don't do that?
Anthony: Why?
Casey: I don't want you to hurt yourself.
