against the challenge of chess. Sam tells him the strategy is the
same. He joins Shayne, Marah, Susan and Max at the table. They talk
about and upcoming concert that they all want to go to but lack the
funds and parental permission. Sam comes up the the great idea of
burning CD's and selling them for a profit from music that they
download off the internet. Max points out that it is illegal and
really wants no part of it. Every time Susan gets in trouble, he gets
the blame for it, he says. Tony comes in and sits down beside Marah.
They discuss the evening that they were out and Tony decked Carlos'
employee. Shayne is blackmailed into silence by his sister. Tony and
Sam discuss Sam's bike. Marah tries to warn Sam not to, but he agrees
to play dice for the bike because Tony has the $1000.00 they need for
the concert. Much to his dismay, Tony rolls 7 straight rolls of 11.
Sam hands over the keys to the bike as Buzz looks on. He decides that
he wants a piece of the action and challenges Tony to a game that
will pay off $10,000.00. On the first roll, Tony makes a 7 and Buzz
nails him with his loaded dice. He orders Tony out and to return the
keys to the bike to Sam. Sam is grateful and intrigued by Buzz's
knowledge of the hustle.

new found skills while working with Doctors International. That's
funny Reva says, Noah says he got some of the skills while he was in
high school. Woody begs her to drop the investigation but Reva says
she can't. He tries one more time, pick a reason, Noah or the fact
that it is dangerous but drop the investigation. Again Reva says she
can't and by this time, Reva is undressed to her slip. Woody excuses
himself for a few moments and when he reenters the room, he takes
reva by surprise when he becomes amorous. Reva says she isn't ready
for this and all of a sudden Woody collaspes to the floor as Noah
