Recap

In Las Vegas, Glenn Faulkner is losing at the craps table when a model comes over and bets against him. Faulkner misses his point and leaves, tapped out, while the model collects her bet. As Faulkner leaves the casino, a man watches him go. Back at the hotel he owns, Faulkner writes a letter to his daughter Stephanie, admitting that he lost his money gambling. The man from the casino, George Castle, comes in and demands the $8,000 that Faulkner owes him. The note is payable on demand and Castle wants it now. Faulkner figures that Castle wants the land so the mob can put up a new casino, and Castle admits that he put up $50,000 as a guarantee. He assures Faulkner that he's selling but the hotelier promises to keep the land for his daughter Stephanie. Once he's sure that Faulkner won't deal, Castle takes out a gun and shoots Faulkner dead...

Episode Quotes
George Castle: All right, Mason, I'll pay your $1,500. Where do we go from here?
Perry: I'm going to get a bad taste out of my mouth.

Perry: Oh, yes. Castle's business is a mystery, his ethics questionable, his source of income... well, you see what you can dig up.
Paul: Sounds perfectly charming.

Perry: George Castle is dead.
Stephanie Faulkner: How did you know that?
Perry: That gentleman with the deceptive smile is Lt. Tragg. The only thing that keeps him working around the clock is a homicide.

Perry: Who is it?
Della: Lt. Tragg.
Perry: Breathing fire?
Della: If he's a dragon, he's a tired one.
