Back in Atlantic City, Mickey Doyle is returning from a drunk night of his own, only he's brought a ladyfriend back to his place with him. He regales her with tales of the "Kama Sutree" from "Egypt" where you screw upside-down as they stumble to the couch and she begins to take his pants off. He turns on the light, though, and she screams. It's pretty obvious why, even before we see him: Richard Harrow, standing in the corner, pointing a gun at Mickey. The woman runs off while Mickey, pants around his ankles, shakes like a leaf, yelling, "Don't shoot!" Am I crazy or did the acting on this show used to be a looooot subtler? Richard instructs Mickey to grab his hat, them marches him out the front door.
Back in Cicero, the treasury agent makes his way to Van Alden, who says his name is George Meuller and delivers the "this is my first time" line that, despite being true in this case, no cop will ever believe. Van Alden's heart nearly drops through the floor when the prohie looks at him a second and says he recognizes him. Van Alden tries in vain to say he's just got one of those faces that looks like other faces (umm....), but that's not it. Finally, to Van Alden's relief, it turns out that the agent recognizes him from the neighborhood in Cicero. And like a good neighbor, he offers Van Alden a deal: pay the fine directly to him and he won't report it officially. To complete the shakedown, the agent grabs Van Alden's wallet, takes all the cash in it, and then mocks his sales acumen if that's all he's carrying. Service with a smile, eh?
