Las Vegas s02e24 Episode Script

Centennial

We were really nothing more than a watering hole.
on the way to Los Angeles.
But on May 15, 1905 a land auction established Las Vegas as a city.
5 years later, a flash flood sweept away a 100 miles sombrero(?) tracks The breakin serviced, nearly emtyed the valley, but all that changed with the boulding down.
We poured concrete 24 hours a day, for more than 2 years.
And Las Vegas became a boom town.
When the damm was built, everyone went away.
Then Bugsy Siegel had a vision.
Cost Bugsy his life, but what a vision.
By the time Frank and Dean arrived.
Vegas was world famous.
I've seen a lot of changes since Las Vegas became a city.
Yes, I was 10 years old when Las Vegas became a city and I've seen it all.
At least I thought I had.
Well, hey, If anybody deserves a key to the city, it's you, my friend.
I'll second that.
Well, I never helped give away cars before.
All you have to do is help Mayor Goodman draw numbers.
We'll take care of everything else.
Mayor Goodman.
Now, I can tell you some stories about him.
One time, he Hello? He's good.
- He's taking a nap? - He's exhausted.
So, Mary, tonight's the night? - Where's Jake taking you? - Hawaii.
- For how long? - Two weeks.
Where are you staying? His family has a little place on the beach.
A little place on the beach ? It's a compound on a beach they own.
And correct me if I'm wrong, aren't you traveling via private jet? Yeah.
You're going to marry him.
- Oh, sorry.
- No, no, no, no.
Have fun.
I will.
So, I hear that you and Bon Jovi are real practical jokers.
You can't believe everything you hear.
No, that's true.
Listen, if there's anything you need, say, uh maybe a line of credit, please don't hesitate to ask.
Well, thank you.
We're here on business.
Owners meetings.
So, has anybody heard anything new about the sale of the Montecito? Only that it's supposed to happen by midnight tonight.
She reminds me of my late third wife.
Oh, oh, oh, that's John Elway.
I'm going to get an autograph.
I've been a fan since I was a kid.
Excuse me.
- Damn, I forgot to bring my football.
- Damn.
Boys will be boys.
Mr.
Elway, I was wondering if maybe you could sign my football for me? - Sure.
- Danny, could you not You just go ahead and make it out to Danny McCoy.
Put "Michael" on there.
Very funny, pork chop.
Did you see that? The man's still got a cannon for an arm.
That was my football.
Hi, Jon.
Hi, Delinda.
So, how's the Arena Baseball thingy going? It's football.
Arena Football.
I'm not really into sports anyway.
You told me you were a cheerleader.
No, Jon, I said I could be a cheerleader if you know what I mean.
- There you are! - Hey, Auntie Gladys.
- How's my Mikey? - I am good.
- How are you? - I'm doing great.
Good.
Danny, this is my Auntie Gladys.
Pleased to meet you, Auntie Gladys.
It's my pleasure to meet you.
My father is a huge fan.
I mean, not that I'm not.
I am.
It's just that My mom and dad danced to one of your songs at their wedding, so Let me guess, "You're The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me"? That was kind of their song.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
Make sure you bring your folks tonight, and I'll sing it for them, okay ? Wait, it's just ma dad now but he'll be there.
- Oh, I'm sorry.
- No, no, no, it's Yeah ? Well, bing him back stage and introduce him, okay? - I will.
Thank you.
- All right.
- Now, Mikey.
- Yes, ma'am.
I need for you to back me up tonight.
I won't take no for an answer.
- Wait, no, Auntie - Don't talk to me.
Don't talk to me.
- 'Cause I - Don't talk to me.
How could you not tell me that your aunt was Gladys Knight? You never asked.
If my bid for the Montecito is successful which, we're gonna know by midnight I'd like you to stay on, Ed, but in a different capacity.
What do you mean, in a different capacity? Well, I'd like to give you a little added responsibility A seat on the board of directors, if you don't mind.
I think I can handle that.
I don't think, I'll mind, Casey.
I was thinking about making a few changes in the casino.
Really? What kind of changes? A complete face-lift.
Danny McCoy.
Dad, hey.
We were just talking about you.
Huh, yeah, I'm sorry about last week.
I got hung up.
Yeah.
Yeah.
I know.
It's been more than a few weeks.
But we'll catch up tonight, okay? Hey, Dad, I got to run.
I'll see you tonight.
And there's somebody that I want you to meet.
Yes, it's a woman.
All right, I'll see you later.
We gotta keep up with the other casinos in town, Ed.
Green Valley Ranch just opened a whole new wing, VIP pool, spa.
Caesar's has a new tower.
The Palms is building a new tower, with a Playboy mansion up on top.
Now, my plans are for a head-to-toe refurbishment and then a grand re-opening of the all-new Montecito.
I'm sorry, Casey.
Excuse me for a second? Yeah, sure.
Hey.
We need to talk.
Yeah, we do.
Even though you're still my wife, Sam if you plan on staying with the Montecito after I buy the place - you'll have to step it up a notch.
- Excuse me? There are other casino hosts in town who bring in a lot bigger clients wo gamble a lot more money, and I need the best, and only the best.
Yeah, I am the best.
Actually, you're not.
What the hell are you doing here? Does the Agency got, uh Aother murder case they can't quite solve? It's about your daughter, Ed.
Jackson Holt had another child, a daughter.
That's impossible, I mean - Nessa was his only kid.
- Well, apparently not.
There was some kind of accident in London.
The facts are still sketchy but Nessa's sister was rushed to the hospital.
She was unconscious.
The other person at the scene, a male, was dead.
Police had no idea who either of them were.
They ran DNA checks on both.
They got one hit, Adanna Holt, Jackson's daughter.
Nessa's younger sister.
When Adanna woke up, she asked for Nessa.
As you can imagine, it set off red flags all throughout the intelligence community.
I worked with Jack for over 10 years.
I would have known if he had another daughter.
Ed, he didn't just have another daughter.
He had a whole other family.
Two completely different lives.
How does that happen without any of us knowing about it? Never trust a con man.
And Jackson Holt was the best.
And, um And, why did you come to me with this information? Let's just call it a courtesy call.
We figured you should know, considering you raised Jackson's other daughter.
Right.
All right.
Of course, what you decide to do with the information is your business.
Hey, Jerry, it's Deline.
Listen, do me a favor.
Get a hold of some of the boys in London Run down all you can on a, uh "Adanna Holt".
She's in a hospital.
And get right back to me.
Excuse me.
No cell phones or video equipment allowed at the tables.
Sorry.
I thought this was a non-smoking table.
It is.
It sure smells like something's burning.
What? So you're cool with Mary going to Hawaii with Jake? Yeah, why not? Family compound on the beach.
Private jet.
$350 million.
- You got a point? - Not really.
- I didn't think so.
- Just gauging your truthfulness.
Mary and I are friends, Mike, just like we've always been, that's all.
Well, the man's good looking, worth $350 million.
You are really hung up on this $350 million, aren't you? Maybe you should date him.
All I'm saying is that you never know if the ladies want you for you or because of your money.
That's something you're never gonna have to worry about because you don't have $350 million.
- That's a good point.
- Check this guy out.
What about him? Well, he's watching this woman he's with like a hawk.
So? So, he never lets her out of his sight.
Not even to go to the bathroom.
Maybe that's how they get their freak on.
It's almost like this guy knows he's being watched.
He keeps glancing up at the camera, and never steps into a blind spot.
You think they're a diversion for something? Maybe.
- They guests? - Yeah but they checked in without luggage and no reservation.
They're probably just stepping out on their spouses.
I thought about that, but if they were, wouldn't they try to avoid the cameras, not stand directly beneath them? Not if they need an alibi for something else.
You can't be a suspect elsewhere if you're on tape at the Montecito.
It's a perfect alibi.
Run a complete check on both of them.
Hey, you wanted to see me? Yeah, I did, honey.
Wait, wait, come on.
Let's sit over here.
If this is about the buyout, my people are starting to get nervous.
Everyone's wondering if they're still going to have a job.
Right.
What's going on? What's going on is that I just got some information.
It seems that you have a sister.
What? Yeah.
Her name is Adanna.
She's in London, in a hospital.
She's okay and she was asking for you.
No.
I think I'd know if I had a sister.
Well, they took some DNA, and it matched up with your dad's.
Why are they matching DNA with my father if he's supposed to be dead? Um, His DNA is in a central computer file with all the rest of the guys in the Company.
Well, I want to see her, my sister.
I want to see her.
Well, I figured you might, but then there's something else I have to tell you as well, huh What ? Apparently, your dad had two separate families two completely different lives.
I can understand not telling me when my mother was alive.
.
but after she died? Why didn't he tell me that I had other family? Look, I'm very sure that your father had good reasons.
Well, what were they? Hey, John.
- Hey.
- Hi.
Here's the Nasty Hot that you asked for.
Thank you.
Have you seen my little buddy? - Bon Jovi.
- That's him.
Photo shoot.
Give me a hot foot, I'll give you a hot Hi.
Howard Hughes: Now that man had a vision.
You know, they tried to kick him out of the penthouse at the Desert Inn.
Because he wasn't gambling so he bought the place.
Mary.
Oh, Casey.
Hey, come here.
Casey, this is Smitty.
He's Las Vegas' oldest living native.
Mayor Goodman's giving him the keys to the city.
- How you doing there, Smitty? - I'm a 110 years old, how the hell do you think I'm doing? Good point.
- Mary, can I speak to you for a second? - Yeah, of course.
I wanted to let you know that I'm having a meeting of all key personnel to discuss their jobs and their performances.
Oh, yeah? Any thoughts on my job yet? Actually, I don't think your job's necessary.
I got nothing on either of them.
They couldn't have checked in without a credit card.
The credit card belongs to a Mark George.
He's from New York City.
So run a check on him.
I did.
There is no Mark George.
Then turn it over to Metro.
It's obviously a fake credit card.
It's not fake.
Stolen? Active and paid in full, on time, every month.
If there's no Mark George, who's paying the bill? You know what? Call the credit department.
Have them run a complete credit check on Mark George.
See if we can find out who pays the bill.
What exactly do you do here? I delegate.
And run the girl through Missing Persons.
See if we can get a hit on her.
Nessa just missed a dealer change and a new deck shuffle.
You better call Ed.
Come on, Nessa, take a break.
Ed, I'm going to London to see my sister, and find out about the rest of my family.
If you could just wait a little while.
They might have information about my father.
Maybe they've seen him.
Maybe they know why or how he disappeared.
- Stop, Nessa.
- Ed, What's the deal with the buyout? - In a minute, Mary.
- Because Casey told me, that my job is unnecessary.
What aren't you telling me, Ed? Nothing, honey.
I'm telling you everything I know.
Ed, am I losing my job? You knew about my sister and the other family all along, didn't you? No, I did not.
Absolutely not.
We'll talk later.
Why did you even take me in, in the first place? - We loved you.
- No No, It was guilt, wasn't it? - Yeah? - Ed, you better get up here, now! Because you felt guilty about my father's disappearance.
You were responsible for what happened to him, weren't you? Her name's Susan Welch.
She was killed in a traffic accident 16 months ago.
I'd say she looks pretty good for a corpse.
How do you know that's her? According to police reports, newspaper clippings, death certificate, it's her.
Where'd you get this footage? It was posted on the Internet.
Yeah, but like like a film festival ? There's all kinds of graphic sites on the Internet.
Man.
- You said you'd be back in a minute! - Honey, I'm sorry.
What aren't you telling me about my sister, Ed? - Could you answer me? - Yes, I will.
Come on.
Nessa has a sister? Gladys Knight is your auntie? What else don't I know? I didn't know she had a sister.
Find out what you can about Susan Welch.
Where she lived.
Who she worked for.
Family members.
Where are you going? Down, to upgrade the lucky couple to a suite.
Maybe I can get something out of them.
Sam.
Sam.
Hey, excuse me.
Casey just told me that after he buys the Montecito, I won't have a job.
- Yeah, I doubt, any of us will.
- Are you serious? When Casey buys something, he takes it apart piece by piece, then puts it back together again, but never with the same pieces.
Huh, hello! Hi, I'm Danny McCoy, with the Montecito.
And you are? I'm Mark George.
In honor of our centennial celebration, the Montecito randomly picks out guests, to be upgraded to one of our suites and congratulations, you two are today's lucky couple.
So, if you'll just follow me over to the VIP check-in Thanks, but we're fine where we are.
Aren't we, honey? - Absolutely.
- There's no charge to you.
It's on the Montecito.
Cost you nothing.
Thanks, but no thanks.
Let's go.
Hey.
What do you know about the Montecito buyout? Huh There are four possible buyers: Casey Manning Fred Puterbaugh with the Maloofs, and Donald Trump, who wants to fire everyone.
- Yeah.
Apparently so does Casey.
- Yeah.
I'll take care of Casey.
Who's the fourth? A mystery man who thinks he's Howard Hughes.
Sealed bids are due by midnight tonight.
Did you know that Gladys Knight is Mike's auntie, and Nessa's got a sister? I got to go.
- Nessa has a sister? - Yeah.
Listen, whoever buys this place, they can't run it without Ed, right? - Right.
- And Ed needs us, right? - Right.
- So our jobs are safe, right? - No, I'm leaving.
- Listen, Nessa.
I don't think you want me to make a scene in the middle of the casino, do you ? Let's just go somewhere where we can talk.
You call it talk, I call it avoiding my questions.
I need to talk to you about Casey and the buyout.
Sorry.
- I'm in the middle of something.
- You don't know the way I know him.
- He'll get rid of everyone.
- Not now, Sam.
Sorry.
Honey.
Just let me get through this buyout.
Midnight tonight.
Latest, tomorrow morning.
And then you and I will go to London.
- I don't need you to come with me.
- I know you don't.
But I really want to go with you, okay? - Okay.
- Okay.
You know, I'm just not feeling this whole Arena Bowl Weekend thing, Johnny.
- There's gonna be an awards ceremony.
- Yeah.
Not working for me.
Arena Battle? Huh ? An Arena Bash Concert? Will you be playing? No.
Hey, is it ? is it getting a little hot in here ? Maybe it's just me.
I don't think so.
Elway didn't happen to be hanging around during my photo session, was he? Yeah, he was asking me which dressing room was yours.
Said something about nasty hot pants.
"Nasty Hot"? Well, yeah.
I thought it was some kind of new football uniform.
Johnny! That little So you've had your fun.
I think it's time for you to leave.
Actually, Sam, I've just begun to have my fun.
Uh, Really? What are you gonna do, blow up the Montecito just to spite me? Las Vegas is the only city in the world that reinvents itself every day.
Oh, my God.
You're going to blow this place up, aren't you? Only part of it.
Detective Jenny Cho just phoned for you.
She told me to tell you she has to worklate tonight but wondered if maybe you'd like to stop by her place for a little midnight booty call.
- She said that? - No, I'm just reading between the lines.
Danny, talk to me.
Has she used her handcuffs on you? Actually, this girl The other night, I'm at her house and I take her handcuffs and I So what did you get on Susan Welch? What? It ain't fair to leave a man hanging like that, so I'm just gonna use my imagination.
Oh, yeah.
Detective, oh.
- Are you done? - Almost.
What did you, what did you get on Susan Welch? Nothing.
The woman lived a boring life.
I guess she was just probably bored and decided to disappear.
That's quite an elaborate plan to fight boredom, Mikey.
Or maybe it's some kind of life insurance scam.
She didn't have life insurance.
I already checked.
You did some work.
Hey, you think this buyout thing is gonna go through? With four possible buyers and a midnight deadline.
I'd say there's a pretty good chance.
You worried? About a job? No.
No.
I guess I always figured my dad would die happy if I went back to work at McCoy Construction, so I wasn't thinking so much about you, as me.
No, of course not.
You were always better at parking cars anyway.
I think I'm pretty great at this surveillance and security stuff.
I think I've got a better knack for it than you.
Can't go back to being a valet, - not exciting enough.
- Wow, freeze.
Go back two seconds.
What is that flash? Could be a light wand.
Push in.
What is that? Overhead lights are reflecting off something.
Watch this.
I tone down the flash, outline the object, go to thermal.
He's got a gun.
Well, this is not good.
What did your contacts in London say? You sure? All right, thanks, man.
I owe you, okay? Thanks.
It's Deline.
Listen, I got some information.
Oh, you do, too.
Wait, not on the phone, okay? Come to my office.
It's secure.
Right? So, you gave up on Bon Jovi, huh? He's more interested in John Elway.
You do realize he's a happily married man? I know.
I was just hoping he'd write a song about me.
You know, like Layla and Angie and Michelle.
"Delinda".
Do you really have a genius IQ? It is truly frightening.
Well, it's not like I work with nuclear weapons or anything.
Although, I do like to blow things up.
Ladies and gentlemen, we're just moments away from the first car giveaway: A brand-new Toyota Avalon! - He started it.
- He started it.
Yeah, well, I can't believe how childish the two of you are acting.
Oh, really? I'm sorry! What is it with grown men behaving like little kids? Speaking of which.
.
- That's a nice look, Sam.
- Casey, please don't do this.
Business is business, Sam.
And you of all people should know that.
And the winning number for the first Toyota Avalon is No more bets, please.
No more bets.
The second car will be given away very soon.
My good friend, Gladys Knight, will be taking the stage at any moment.
I know that you're all very nervous about this impending buyout and that there are tons of rumors flying around.
Is it true that they're going to implode the Montecito? - Implode the Montecito? - That's what I heard.
- Yeah, me, too.
Right, Sam? - Is that true, Sam? - Did you talk to Casey? - Listen, listen, whoever buys the Montecito has the right to do with it as they choose.
If that's still the name.
I heard they want to change it.
Ed, should we be looking for new jobs? The minute I hear anything, I'll inform every one of you.
Okay? But right now we have guests that need attending to, and we have a party that needs your attention.
Okay? Ed, I've got Mark George and Susan Welch in Holding Rooms 1 and 2.
Well, huh Sweat them for a little while.
See what you can get out of them.
I was with your father the night that he disappeared.
There was this-- exchange of-- intelligence material.
It was all a big con, 'cause what I was giving them had much less value, than what I was getting in return.
I don't understand.
Well, Jack, He was the go-between.
He just made a real, horrible mistake getting in the car for the exchange that night.
That was the last anyone ever saw of him.
Why do think he's dead if he was alive the last time you saw him? There is no way on earth that those people in that car would let him live knowing what he was doing.
And what he had done.
Well.
You've lied to me about my father before.
How do I know you're not lying now? Honey, I was just-- - Just trying to protect you.
- Protect me from what? The truth.
Which is? Which is-- That your father worked, - for whoever paid him.
- What are you saying? He-- Sold out a lot of agents.
And he was personally responsible for their deaths.
Many of theirs Many of ours.
I'm sorry.
I'm asking you not to do this to the Montecito.
These people are my friends.
Okay, you win.
I'll do anything if you call off the buyout.
- Anything? - Anything.
Hello, Mrs.
Casey Manning.
Damn, I'm late.
Mitch.
let Danny know the weapon was stolen.
And tell him that Metro called.
They need to speak to him ASAP.
Said it was personal Mark George doesn't exist.
Why don't you tell me who you really are? Why would you fake your own death, Susan? Who are you running from? I want to talk to Jim.
She rolled over on you, Jim.
Tell me who you really are.
I'm a U.
S.
Marshal assigned to protect her.
Susan is a federal witness.
Her cover was blown.
- So, you guys are on the run? - Yeah.
With all your surveillance, I knew we'd be safe here.
No one would try anything with all these cameras.
Ed, the guy's name is Jim Mack.
He claims to be a U.
S.
Marshal and the woman is a federal witness.
You want me to go after her? No.
She'll calm down.
She always does.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Montecito Resort and Casino is proud to present for the Las Vegas Centennial Celebration : Miss Gladys Knight! Thank you! Hello, and welcome! Hello, and welcome! We came to celebrate tonight.

Almost.

- Was she crying? - It looked like it.
Wonder if it was about her sister? Her sister? What sister? Ed Oh, yeah.
You got one breath.
Start using it.
Nessa's sister was set up to flush out Jackson Holt.
- Jack's alive? - Ed, I just found out.
They were trying to kidnap Adanna.
You knew he was alive all this time, didn't you? - Ed, I'm just the messenger.
- Fifteen years.
My family's in jeopardy - I never knew! I never knew! - for 15 years! I swear on my kids I'm gonna kill you right now.
What, you think of all the people in the world ? Ed, I'd come here and lie to you? Who's behind it? Them or us? I don't know.
I swear! All I know is that Nessa's in danger.
And they're coming after her.
Ms.
Connell, Jake got hung up.
He'll meet you at the plane.
Okay.
- Whenever you're ready.
- Thank you.
Hey, Greg, have you seen Danny? Not for a while.
Thanks.
I'm ready.
Hey, Danny.
I have Detective Jenny Cho on the line.
She says it's important.
- Tell her I'll call her back.

Video IQ Nessa for me, would you? - What's going on? - Just put it in my office.
Roger that.

Jim Mack, Susan Welch I wanna know who the hell they are, and I wanna know now.
- Yes, I will hang on.
- Ed.
I'm on the phone, honey.
I can't be here if Casey owns the Montecito.
- Just one - No, I need to tell you right now that I can't be here if Casey owns the Montecito.
I tried to make a deal but I couldn't so I'm gonna have to quit.
What? I quit.
Why? Because you're the closest thing to a father I've ever had is the closest thing to a family I've ever had.
And I love you.
And I love everybody here, and apparently, I'm not very good at goodbyes so will you tell everyone I said goodbye? Sam, honey, hey - Sam.
- Ed.
I can't find Nessa anywhere on the property.
Just call her on her cell, will you? Yeah.
I just heard a bid was accepted.
The Montecito's been sold.
- But there's no word on who bought it.
- Just please call her on her cell.
Yeah, hey, thanks.
Their stories check out okay? They're safe.
Listen, just send a couple of guys down and ask for Danny McCoy, will you? Thanks.
Hey, Nessa, it's Danny.
Hold for Ed.
Hey, sweetie, where are you? I'll be back in a minute.
I'm just getting some air.
Okay.
Check every flight to London.
Find out which one she's on.
And then, when you get it, just call me right away, okay? What about the Marshall and witness? There's a couple guys coming down.
I told them to ask for you.
I love these guys.
I love these guys.
Especially this one right here.
This one has a very special place in my heart, see Because he is my nephew and also, Montecito's own.
Mike Cannon, right here.
Yeah, see, I've been trying to get him to go out on the road with me, you know? Maybe with a little encouragement from you he may think about it.
You know? Well.
It'll be my pleasure.
Come on.
Do it, guys.
Do it, guys.
Now, this is a song I wanna do for you.
I have loved doing this song with these guys since 1973.
Work it, guys.
Ed, Nessa's on flight 318.
And Delinda's on the plane with her.
- I can't wait to go to King's Road.
- Me, too.
Wow! - You ready? - Yeah.
'Cause you look a little nervous.
- That's because I am.
- You'll love it.
In fact, you're never going to want to come back - Promise? - Yeah.
I promise.
Hey, Greg, have you seen my dad anywhere? No, but I'll tell him you're looking for him if I do.
Okay, thanks.
- Mary's looking for you.
- Thank you.
- What are you doing? - What's it look like I'm doing? I'm stuck to the machine.
I did not steal those towels.
I have no idea how that Montecito property got in my car.
Bon Jovi! The second winning number is Danny! Hey! - I thought that you had to work late.
- You didn't answer my calls.
We've been trying to get a hold of you.
I know.
I'm sorry.
I've just been so busy here.
Glad you're here.
Want you to meet my dad.
I know he's around here somewhere.
- What? - Your father was in an accident.
How is he? Which hospital is he in? He's dead, Danny.
I'm so sorry.
