On the Fortuna
, a nearly-deaf Walter Gordon is at the craps table and complains about the dice. His two associates demand a new pair and Andamo tells the croupier to go ahead. He then goes over to chat with Joyce, Gordon's private secretary. She insists that she doesn't socialize during business hours. Meanwhile, Lucky and Maggie watch as Gordon continues losing. Lucky explains that Gordon is wealthy and has been abroad in Africa financing deals in oil and land. With him is Roy Berg, Howard's executive VP, and Evan Britton, the man's PR director. When Maggie wonders why Lucky doesn't bounce him, the owner admits that he can't be rude to $100 million...Read the full recap
Lucky: It isn't enough that I've asked you to stay away from the Fortuna until you square the books. You have to show up and scare off the biggest loser since Hitler.
Maggie: Andamo, what are you doing tonight?
Lucky: He's watching me take you home.
Maybelle Towers: Umm, and if I was 20 years younger, honey, you'd have to go home alone.
Maggie: Miss Towers, have you designs on my man?
Maybelle Towers: Thank you, my dear, no. But if his father was around, ohh...
Joyce: I just love libraries. They're so... intellectual.
Andamo: Oh yes, yes. I found libraries, uh, very exciting. I do a lot of reading myself.
Andamo: Yes, yes. Like, uh... books.
Andamo: Debate was right. Besides, I didn't hear the proclamation.
Lucky: What proclamation?
Andamo: The one making this "Slug Andamo Week."
Maggie: I goofed, huh?
Walter Gordon: Now I want that key.
Andamo: Eh, why don't you make us a deal? We bribe easy.
