From: Sorry for subjecting you to my. Las Vegas s02e07 - Montecito Lancers Episode Script. SS is dedicated Field goal's not gonna do it, they need the touchdown. There's the snap. Delin, talk to them Danny. You need to Give it up for Coach Delinda. Thank you. . Do you have any idea as to why he missed the last couple of days of work? Yeah, I have .
We can see what you're doing. There's a verbal variation between Sam Marquez and Monica Mancuso when they first meet in the third season. Any ambiguity as to whether it's intended as one is dropped out the window when two cats screeching are heard over the soundtrack. The guys later remark that they really regret that they missed it, so it's also in-universe fanservice.
Zigzagged with Danny and Mary. They grew up and spent all their time together and he protected her from her abusive father, but they never started a committed relationship.
They made out the night before Danny joined the marines. Since then Mary harbors feelings for Danny, which he doesn't reciprocate. When she confronts him over it, she theorizes that he is afraid of commitment because of the way he lost his mother. They have sex again before his second tour. When he comes back he proposes to her, but it is primarily a sign of his shellshockso they break it off.
Danny and Mary have spontaneous sex in a closet in another episode. Then later on they spend a romantic weekend with each other, but still don't get a Relationship Upgrade.
Then they both briefly get different love interests. Then Danny starts dating Delinda again, and keeps this a secret from Mary, who is hurt after she finds out. And finally, after four seasons of Will They or Won't They? Something big seems to happen at the Montecito every week. At one point, Sam gets a dog named Reggie. She mentions it in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it comment a few episodes later, despite it not having been seen since that episode.
But then again, he doesn't appear again, so maybe not? Occasionally with Crossing Jordan. And of all things Deal or No Deal. One episode of Deal ended with host Howie Mandell walking off the set telling stage people that he is late for his flight to Las Vegas. The series finale wasn't ever intended as such, so when the show was cancelled, it ended on a major cliffhanger.
She viewed their life of travel as a constant adventure and doesn't understand why her mother is tired of it. Subverted by a gay couple when they have Danny and Mike over for some food. They say that the four of them can have each other for lunch and then dinner, weirding out Danny and Mike, but then admit that they were just messing with them.
Didn't Think This Through: Delinda taunts her kidnappers with this the general tone, not the exact phrase when they're trying to make a new escape plan after Danny calls in a fake terrorist threat to ground all flights in or out of LAS.
She has a point: What did they think was going to happen, he'd play along? You're gonna die, you know. They shut down your airport, it's only a matter of time. By the time the police figure any of this out, I'll be on a beach earning twenty percent. I'm glad you think this is all funny.
What's so funny is, you actually think the police will be involved. There'll be no police, no FBI. There'll only be men whose sole responsibility is to hunt you down and kill you. Played utterly straight when a Syrian diplomat steals a 90 million dollar Egyptian mummy that was on display at the Montecito casino.
When Ed shows up trying to stop the guy before he boards his private plane the cops just let him go on with his business by citing his personal immunity, in spite of the fact that letting a foreigner steal a national treasure would undoubtedly lead to an international incident with Egypt which unlike Syria, has been a major US ally since However, the guy who stole the treasure was a selfish dick who simply did not give a crap who wanted it for his private collection, Deline didn't have any legally obtained, actionable evidence of the crime, and Team Montecito had already stolen it back.
Rape, Female on Male: One season one episode had Sam really upset by a rival, culminating in suggesting they make a fresh start, make out, then after really working him up ties him to the bed and offers him to a grotesque, obese, borderline woman. This is especially hypocritical in light of the show's generally egalitarian view of gender, and the fact that Sam herself would later be kidnapped and nearly raped, which is treated as serious and traumatizing.
Dropped a Bridge on Him: Monica, who is fatally blown off the Montecito's roof and carried by the wind into another casino. Some of the season one episodes including the pilot featured a "Mr. Schaefer", who was implied to be Ed's boss at the Montecito.
The character was quickly dropped. Neither of them gets the chance to go through with it, but before her death billionaire Monica Mancuso planned to rename the Montecito Resort and Casino The Monica when she was the property's owner, while Sam Marquez toys with renaming it the "Samecito" when she later inherits the ownership from Casey Manning. Enhance Button - The show is absolutely terrible about this. In fact, it's built into the very premise: Nearly every episode has Danny, Ed, and Mike zoom in to identify individuals from security cameras at least twenty feet away and use absurdly sophisticated for a casino, MIT students gave them the latest and greatest in exchange for helping with a harmless prank facial recognition software.
And yet despite all this, they still manage to get robbed or at least someone tries to in every other episode. Some of the more ridiculous examples: There's a slight Hand Wave that the computer "extrapolated" the new information from what they already had which simply means that it took a guessbut it's not even shown how it did so - the audience is simply supposed to accept it. They then remove the hand, fill in the missing features, do the same to the other half of the guy's face, ending up with a complete 3-d rendering of the guy's head by pure guesswork.
In Shrink Rap, Mike holds a special filter up to an image of cards on the screen, revealing the markings in invisible dye which a cheater has been applying to them.
On the screen, which by rights shouldn't be capable of displaying anything but the human-visible spectrum of colors. When the Monticito reopens Ed does some Lampshade Hanging by asking to use something he is not supposed to have, suggesting that if the casino wouldn't use it then being ex CIA he would. A signature staple of the series, with some pretty impressive examples. The series even opens with a rather extensive one.
Sam would be one, but she bends the interpersonal ethics at times, though it's usually funny. Sam may do some low things but she wouldn't break the law by drugging her clients to keep them to continue gambling. And when she used a rich man dating service to bring in three whales, her conscience started eating her as the men seemed to genuinely like her and she was just using them.
So, she uses her connections and finds suitable romantic interests for each one while she gave them a break-up speech. Subverted in an episode where Sam Marquez is teamed up with a debt collector to track down several gamblers who are evading their debts to the casino.
She asks him if he's gonna hurt anyone to force them to pay up, but he points out that this would quickly land him in jail if the debtor decides to call the authorities; according to him it's more about appearance and intimidation than actually roughing people up. This doesn't stop Sam from playing the "violent collector" part herself later on. In the last episode of season 1, Ed says to a group of lawyers that it might seems strange to them to try to do the right thing for once.
A privileged women lies that Danny forced himself onto her after she came onto him while both were drunk. Ed blackmails her right back by using these same contacts to cancel most of her company's projects, and generally make her life a living hell, after which she backs off. There's a reason Delinda's emergence from the pool was never taken out of the opening sequence. And don't worry, it's often unisex. Sam Marquez works for a casino. Specifically, her job is to keep 'whales' - big spenders - happy.
Once, she only slept with a guy because he was dying, and she has openly called herself a slut. Strangely, she rarely sleeps with any of the whales themselves, and had to start going to a therapist later in the series after she was abducted and nearly raped and killed.
Las Vegas s02e07 Episode Script | SS
Ed goes from chief of security to casino president on behalf of a mysterious owner who just bought a controlling interest in the Montecito. When Delinda opened her new club in the Montecito casino, one of the first things she did was hire a stellar flair bartender.

She had to steal him from another establishment, in fact. Sylvester Stallone's guest character, Frank the Repairman. Notably, Stallone is one in real life too. Delinda is specifically described as having a genius IQ. She is very good at running restaurants, fashion, and sex, while appearing to be a ditzy blonde. Get a Hold of Yourself, Man! Mike, who is claustrophobic, starts freaking out, leading Ed to hit him. Delinda does it to Mike again in a later episode. What is it with your family and hitting people?
When Ed and Jack Keller are looking for a stolen painting they use this approach to the suspects twice, but switch the roles around. Sam and Delinda both describe themselves openly as sluts on at least one occasion. Montecito owners are usually killed or bought out, with the notable exception of Sam and outright subversion of Cooper. In one episode, a prosphetic foot belonging to a boxing champion's assistant is stolen and he refuses to fight until he gets it back. The casino's manager Ed Deline, a former CIA operative, puts the culprits all in one room, then makes some very pointed threats including that unless the foot shows up, when he's done with them "their kids will come out well-behaved".
He quietly leaves and returns 10 minutes later to get the foot. Hot Men at Work: Appears in an episode when two window washers are doing work on the Montecito casino's many hotel windows while shirtless. Justified because they were specifically paid extra to follow this dress code to placate the guests.
I Let You Win: Part 2" Soli Tendar threw his final bet on the roulette wheel, saving the casino from a lose in the millions. He showed this by after making his bet, he wispers to Sam another number and that is the one the roulette wheel came out with. Danny and Mike have two pretty funny ones of these when they think Ed may have had an affair with the deranged Monica Mancuso. The first involves Monica being dominant and Ed submissive behind closed doors, and the second the other way around.
It wasn't explicitly referenced often, but Danny's status as an ex-Marine made his fighting and marksmanship talents more believable. Ed Deline and Jack Keller do this to get info from an effeminate artist by destroying his paintings, virtually giving the guy a heart attack in the process. Subverted in the same episode when Ed tries this approach with another artist. Half an hour later, the cart arrived with their lunch and the waiter left the cart just inside the door.
Polly had been practicing as Cooper and Morgan talked business and now handed the ball to Cooper so she could set the small table next to the bowling lane with the food, stepping on Morgan's foot in the process. Polly smiled and threw the bowl of lobster bisque that she had insisted on so it spilled over Morgan's head, down her back and all over her clothes. Cooper turned back as she stood, the thick soup running down her hair and into her shirt. Polly feigned surprise and began to apologize profusely.
She grabbed a cloth napkin from the cart and began to wipe at it causing it to run onto her slacks as well. Take off clothes and I take to wash.
Bring back in no time. Then we play bowl. After about ten minutes, she could finally run her fingers through the strands without finding chunks of it. She stepped out of the shower to find that there were no towels anywhere to be found. She cracked the door open enough to call out to Cooper. I'll bring you one of my shirts to put on. She leaned against wall next to the frosted-glass paneled door, naked and still dripping from the shower, until he knocked at the door.
It hung just far enough to cover her suitably as long as she sat in a certain way. She sighed and buttoned it up then used the towel to squeeze as much water from her hair as she could. The camera placement in that hall has a gap in it where that door is. They've tried to fix it, but it just leaves gaps in more important areas, so they left it that way. After that, it's kind of been overlooked.
He looked up to find Morgan standing just outside the bathroom. Her wet hair was slicked back to hang just past her shoulders. The shirt covered her enough as long as she didn't raise her hands and had damp spots here and there from her wet hair. She smoothed an errant hair behind her ear then pulled at the hem as if she wished it hung lower.
She swam in the shirt, which fit his 6'4" frame perfectly, but not as much as he had thought she would. She was just under a head shorter than he and her forehead came to his chin. The shirt hugged the curves of her breasts in damp spots, making the shirt hang that much higher. He blinked as he realized he was staring when she began to look uncomfortable under his scrutiny.
He turned away to pull one of the chairs out for her to sit on. She sat down and he slid the chair in where he had placed her roast beef sandwich and salad. He glanced at her as she pulled her damp hair to hang over one shoulder.
Polly put Morgan's clothes in the washing machine with some detergent and turned it on as she hummed happily. She continued to hum as she made her way to Opus, where she ordered a sandwich. Just as she was finishing it, Piper found her. Weren't you supposed to be bowling with Morgan and Cooper? Maybe Cooper help clean up. Been push them since see them come out of bang-bang room. Work at casino as long as Polly and she never have in whole time.
She no look at women that way. Especially without any clothes for her. What makes you think he will stay and entertain her for that long? But I use help with plan. You help Polly buy sexy lingerie for her wear.
If we get it in her favorite color, she'll be more likely to wear it. Cooper sat across from her on the love seat smoking a cigar and looking through a file Danny had given him several days ago but he hadn't had time for until now. She fiddled with the top button of the shirt that she was wearing. Cooper closed the file and stood, tossing it on the table where their empty plates were neatly stacked. He disappeared around the corner and came back with a deck of cards and a tin of small shortbread cookies.
He looked at her, surprised. Maybe get a head start on the weekend. He dealt the cards. I barely know what beats what.
So go easy on me. He watched her bite her lip as she debated her hand. He looked at her expectantly. She laid one card on the coffee table between them. Cooper dealt the new card and waited for her to respond. She looked up at him. She put her cards down. Two threes and two fours with a Jack high. He put down his full house.
If you win, we start playing for the cookies. If I win, we do what Polly thinks we should be doing," Morgan went on. Just remember what I said. Poker is as much about luck as skill. Don't throw the hand or fold just because you have a winning hand and you don't want it to be. You've got to be willing to receive payment on a bet like that.
She reached out a hand. Cooper nodded and shook her hand. She dealt the cards. She put the stack on the table and picked up her five cards. She could keep that nothing, but she'd made the deal with Cooper so she kept the ten of diamonds, her highest card, and dealt herself four others. Morgan dealt him a new card. He looked at his cards then up at Morgan expectantly.
She looked at her cards and her heart fell. There was only one way he could win this hand and she knew it.
By tying with her. And the chances of that were astronomical. He laid his cards on the table. He had a four to eight in spades, a flush, and the second highest hand in Poker. Then Morgan hesitantly laid her cards down and Cooper looked at them in shock.
The only hand in Poker that could win over a flush… five sequential cards of the same suit… was a royal flush. She spread her cards out… ten, jack, queen, king, and ace… all of diamonds. With beginner's luck she'd hit a royal flush. Whether she saw the luck as good or bad, he couldn't tell from her face, but he hesitated a few beats then slowly stood.
He wanted to ask if she was sure she wanted to do this, but a bet was a bet. Cooper unbuttoned his bowling shirt then did the same with the button-fly jeans he wore. He started to push them down his hips when she pushed him back on the love seat and straddled him. She'd unbuttoned the shirt she was wearing and he suddenly found himself going almost uncomfortably hard at the sight of her naked body. She took a breath and slid her hands into his boxers.
They slid down until his arousal was exposed. He closed his eyes and moaned as she pulled it clear of the clothing and began to slowly stroke it.
Part of her wanted to back out. But the other part reminded her how long it had been since she'd had sex. He pulled her so she was standing on her knees and she placed her hands on his shoulders in surprise. He released her with one hand to slide it between her legs. She gasped as he slid his fingers between the folds of her sensitive flesh.
She was slick and wet. The tip buried inside and Cooper moved his hand back to her hip. Before he could slide her down over it, she had moved, burying him inside her. He arched in surprise; plunging deeper. She gasped and gripped his shoulders harder. She was breathing hard and heavy, her face inches from his own.
She slid on her forearms until her elbows rested on the back of the love seat, her forearms supporting his head. Together, they began to move, eyes locked, breathing synced.
He moved his hands to open both shirts so their bare chests could press against one another. In an effort to clear some of the cobwebs, Cooper asked, "How long has it been? It felt like their movement was slow and time itself seemed to slow down.
Cooper slid his hands up to her breasts and pinched her nipples, rolling them between his fingertips until they went hard as she moaned in his ear. Then, he pushed her away, changing the angle of penetration and causing her to cry out. He smiled as he released her breasts and moved one hand back to her hip, sliding the other between them where he pressed her clit with his fingertip.
She cried out and threw her head back, arching her body and thrusting her breasts at him. That little maneuver sent the waves of pleasure back at him and he let his head fall back against the furniture with a moan. She smiled at how his handiwork had come back to him then squeezed her knees together. He writhed beneath her and cursed.
Seconds later, he exploded inside her and cried out before she collapsed against him. She lay there for several minutes, catching her breath before she sat up and ran a hand through her hair. She placed her other hand gently on his chest as it rose and fell. He let it set there while he regained control of his body and breathing.
Finally, he looked up at her and made a sudden realization. She'd ridden bareback with no protection. She jerked and slid him out of her with the same realization. Standing over him, she took a deep breath. A bet's a bet," he stated. She turned away and stepped back around the coffee table. Cooper took a breath before he pushed himself off the love seat and tucked himself back in his boxers before heading into the bathroom where she could hear the water run for a few minutes. When he came back out, he was put back together and buttoned up, his facial hair slightly damp.
Morgan took a breath. Piper carried the bag with the lingerie in it as she followed Polly from the elevator on the 37th floor. Polly held Morgan's freshly laundered and ironed clothing as it hung from a hanger.
She knocked at the door and Piper handed her the bag which Polly held behind her back. Piper gave her a thumbs up before she went around a corner to be out of sight of the door just as Cooper opened it.
A game of solitaire was spread out on the coffee table before her. She stood and took the hanger before turning to the bathroom to change back into them. She held up the lingerie bag. So I buy silk underwear. Nicer but still breathe. Always wear purple on top. Now wear under, too. She rolled her eyes.
In the privacy of the bathroom, Morgan unbuttoned Cooper's shirt and slid it down her shoulders, her breath catching as she remembered the feel of his hands on her body.
She hung it on the hook next to the door and pulled the panties from the bag and slid them on. She rubbed her hands along them. They fit like a glove and felt kind of nice so she put the bra on. The bra pushed her breasts up, making them look perky and showing off her cleavage.
She stopped to admire the way she looked in the mirror, an image of Cooper taking them back off coming unbidden. She put her shirt on then pulled her pants up her hips. She tucked her shirt into her waist and buttoned them. She glanced in the mirror to find she liked the way the new bra made her look.
She went out to find Polly waiting for her. She turned to watch Cooper roll a bowling ball down the alley through the dividers. She and Cooper had already discussed what to do about Polly's behavior. They had agreed that she needed to be reprimanded but were not prepared to punish an action that was from her heart.
Morgan slapped her hand away. Morgan found herself in Opus with a drink in her hand. She drank it down then signaled for another. As she waited, she fiddled with a sprig of the holly that Delinda had decorated the bar with for Christmas.
Morgan glanced back at her. Morgan turned suddenly to her. She was starting to feel a little tipsy. She downed the last drink and got up, almost falling. He took Morgan's arm. She gripped the rail behind her. Mike and Delinda looked at each other.
Although Delinda and Mike thought it to mean a stop on the 37th floor, but she was afraid she'd admit her indiscretion in Cooper's suite. She'd already done the deed with him and getting drunk had only made her want more. When they finally made it to the 51st floor, Delinda opened the door as Mike held her and they took her into her room.
Delinda tossed aside the blankets and Mike deposited her there then Delinda took off her shoes and covered her up. Several weeks had passed since the incident in Cooper's suite and both had found ways to avoid being alone together.
It also meant the end of their weekly bowling sessions. Morgan kept busy by taking classes in hotel management at UNLV just to update her decade old degree. Cooper began making big plans for the Montecito that he brought the staff in on when he needed them to be part of it.
When he finally called a meeting of all department heads he had Morgan set it up in one of the smaller ball rooms. When she walked in, most of them were there, and all talk stopped. Morgan stopped to look around at the faces staring at her, the awkwardness in the room almost something one could touch. She wondered if it were her new bra, and discretely buttoned the top button that she had taken to leaving unbuttoned when Polly had introduced her to the line of lingerie.
She met up with Mike and Danny. Morgan looked at him sharply and he went on. The waitress brought their order then said, "I bet you guys see a lot of weird stuff when you're doing the windows. Behind him, Sam was passing and stopped to ask, "Which wing? Sam got a silly smile. We went to that great rave on Saturday? John snapped a pic with his phone.
He found the picture in his files and handed it over. On the tiny screen, she could see two people in a room and they were obviously getting it on. The woman was straddling the man as he lay back on a love seat. Sam handed the phone back. She turned on her heel and went back the way she had come. Piper had been watching from the next table and jumped up to follow Sam and caught up with her when she stopped to open the door to the back-of-house tunnels. Confront one or both of them?
Sam pointed at her and let the smile fade away. Mike plugged the phone into a cord and loaded the picture onto the security computer. Piper and Sam leaned down on either side of him as he worked. On the screen, the picture zoomed in on the couple then became clearer. Three jaws dropped as the picture became just barely clear enough to recognize them. Cooper and Morgan were face to face, Morgan's hands on his shoulders inside of his unbuttoned bowling shirt.
Cooper's hands were cupping her breasts, which were barely visible under the open shirt she wore; recognizable as one of his. Mike zoomed the picture out and examined the room a little more. The table in the background had a stack of dishes and a file on it. The coffee table between the couch and the love seat where the two were had evidence of a card game. He pushed in on the cards and cleared it enough to see the poker hands.
Why didn't you bring this to me… or to Cooper? Now we're having a baby. My life is complicated enough as it is. Danny patted her shoulder and went to talk to him. Morgan breathed a sigh and shut her laptop computer before resting her head on it. She had started to doze off when a knock… no a pound Polly pushed her way in past Morgan and turned to face her.
I feel sorry… feel bad," she said. We'll decide…" she was interrupted by a knock at the door. Cooper stood in the doorway. Morgan waved him in.
