A swoopy Vegas-vert takes us into the Tropicana. Or a reasonable facsimile thereof. Gunn and Fred are playing blackjack while Angel frets that Cary ignored them. Gunn is quick to assume that fame has gone to Cary's head. Angel spots one of the Lornettes walking across the room, and begins to scribble something on a napkin. I'm not entirely convinced that the showgirls also have to perform waitressing duties in the casino, but I guess it could be a theme and the waitresses just dress up the same way. The Lornette approaches Vivian (the culinary-school chick) and gives her a green chip that shimmers briefly. The Lornette says that Vivian won a chance to play their "million-dollar spin-to-win." She points out a curtained area with a goon outside, and says that Vivian just has to show her chip for a chance to win big bucks. Near the curtain, there's also a big cardboard stand-up Cary with a dialogue balloon that reads, "Have to play to win, pussycats!" I bet Andy Hallett's got that in his apartment right now. Vivian thanks the Lornette and heads over to the game room.
As Vivian leaves, Angel approaches the Lornette and asks if she could give Cary a note for him. She's reluctant, but Angel tries to manipulate her with his sincere look. It's not very convincing, which is funny considering that he really is sincere, but the Lornette falls for it and accepts the note. She leaves, and Angel looks around at all the slot monkeys. Creepy music plays to alert Angel that something ain't right. If it weren't for the music, the sight of people feeding slot machines with blank expressions wouldn't really cause much concern, you see. Suddenly, Cordelia voice-overs, "You're picking up on it too, aren't you, Angel?" She says that there's something wrong in the casino, and that the monkeys probably need help. "So that's got me wondering -- where's that keen sense of perception as far as I'm concerned, huh?" She goes on that way as we cut back to the casino, where Angel looks distracted.
