Searching for an idea to turn things around, Eddie suggests turning McGee's into a casino. Only they must first divert the Missouri River, which is 40 blocks away, in order to put McGee's on the river front and qualify it for a gaming license. With help from Hector and their position downhill from the river, Eddie makes sure that the Missouri River just touches McGee's. And once Malcolm bribes their supplier, he has the gambling equipment needed to be approved for a license to open a casino. As a result, McGee's is once again a flourishing -- at McGinley's expense. However, when McGinley arrives with hidden cards and loaded dice, his ill-gotten winnings threaten to ruin Malcolm's business once again. With help from Eddie and his bartender Jason, Malcolm decides to out-cheat the greedy McGinley. But when the cheating spirals beyond his control, Malcolm loses the bar to his rival. Yet, when a gaming commission agent points out the bar's small river channel has run dry and he's in violation of the law, McGinley insists he doesn't really own the bar after all -- unaware that it was all a hoax designed by Jason to keep Malcolm from losing his business. Finally, when their river access really does evaporate, Malcolm finds himself the owner of just a plain old bar and grill once again. Written by Anonymous See less
