Recap

At a pool hall in New Orleans, a pool hustler, Toledo, is playing pool for crime lord Dutch Krebbs and his lieutenant, Press Allen, while their associates look on. Toledo wins the game against the player for rival mobster Tim Sharkey, who pays up before leaving. Dutch pays Toledo his winnings and Press suggests that they go out. The pool player wants to stay in and practice and Dutch agrees. Once Dutch and Press go outside, they send two of their men on in their car. Meanwhile, Toledo goes to the window and assumes that the partners are driving away. He goes up to Dutch's office and breaks into the drawer where the crime lord keeps his files. Using a camera hidden in his wristwatch, Toledo takes photos of the ledger and puts it away... just as Dutch and Press come in. Toledo claims he was going to borrow some money for a girl, but the mobsters know that he's an undercover Federal agent. Press draws a gun and shoots Toledo, and Dutch admits it's a shame they had to kill such a good pool player...

Episode Quotes
Mimi: How does this work?
Barney: This is an inertial guidance system, Mimi. Same kind that's used to keep missiles on course. Our missile, one cue ball.

Jim: Mimi, I want to warn you, this is going to be dangerous. You've been a great help already. You can back out now, no questions asked.
Mimi: Thanks for caring, Jim. But I care, too. And I want to see Krebbs and Press Allen put away for good.
