Raising Hope: Gambling Again

Burt becomes obsessed with gambling when he believes he can reclaim all the items he lost when he bet away all the Chance's belongings nearly 20 years ago. Worried about his bad habit reemerging, Virginia and Jimmy try to intervene but soon get swept up in the betting frenzy and develop their own gambling habit. But their luck begins to run out when they miss Shelley's staged play written by Sabrina and starring Hope as the lead.

The bets are placed, with Burt rooting his heart out for the dog of his choice. Fortunately for him, he wins. Back home, Virginia is appalled when she hears about the whole gambling episode, especially as Burt has a gambling problem. ..
