Episode Goofs
So accept the premise that Woody won a $100,00 car, lost it again, and somehow will still have to pay taxes on it. He made the statement that he will have to work for two months to earn enough to pay taxes on the car. Come on, he's a civil servant in Boston, he can earn enough to pay taxes on $100,000 of extra income in two months? Certainly not unless he's on the take.

Woody looses all and has to return the car (boy, I never saw that coming). He is told that The IRS will still want taxes on his winnings (the car). But if you can document that your gambling losses meet or exceed your winnings (in a single year), you don't pay tax on "winnings" that were only temporary. Casion staff would certainly know that and not make statements to the contrary, it's very bad for business.

One simply can not win a $100,000 car with a single $5 bet on a Las Vegas wheel. The Wheel is not like a slot machine, it has to stop on one of the positions. Even if a wheel had 100 positions, it could not pay out such a big prize on shuch relatively short odds.

The win of the car was clearly an intentional setup by the staff who felt sorry for the guy. Also, some regular joe who know nothing about taxes will always make the mistake of underestimating tax consequences of such a huge prize. It's just a reflection on reality, not a goof.
