Back at the Vanko and Vera plotline, Danny's running the video footage of Vera's pre-show routine. Some waiter brought her a martini on a giant, tablecloth-covered room service cart; this gets Big Ed's attention, especially since the night before the disappearance, the waiter delivered Vera's martini on a tray. Big Ed bustles off to find the waiter, leaving Danny to sit in front of the video terminal, whistling casually to keep from blurting, "Injured? I'm not injured! I'm just very stationary this episode!"
Mike's schooling of Ben continues in a cocktail lounge where, as luck would have it, there's an Elvis impersonators' convention taking place. What does that say about a show when the Elvii Summit is considered less plot-worthy than the swizzle twits? This is a test; it is only a test. Mike asks the assorted Elvii questions, and Ben is supposed to determine whether they're lying or not. Ben fails spectacularly. Mike sighs, "Guess we got a lot more work to do."
And now, the dénouement of the swizzle shtick. Loretta is denying she took Shrub's swizzle, and Monty is pursing his lips in censorious disagreement. Danny breaks out the surveillance footage and shows Loretta for the lying thief she is. Monty looks shocked to have his suspicions confirmed. Loretta looks taken aback for a moment, and then reaches into her purse to pull out the swizzle stick. Both Danny and Mary smile discreetly at this; Monty lunges for the tchotchke and compliments Danny on his work while Loretta's shoulders heave with guilty sobs. Monty asks Loretta to surrender her Sassy card, and as she does, it is as if a great burden has been lifted from her: "All those years collecting swizzle sticks. The single-minded focus it demanded. It's like I've been in prison -- a prison where the bars are made from swizzle sticks. But now, I'm free. Oh, thank you!" She plants a full-on kiss on a bemused Danny's mouth while Mary, who has been exchanging eye-rolling grins with Danny, laughs.
Mike tests Ben on yet more tells by having him quiz showgirls on how old they are. To a woman, they say they're twenty-two. To a woman, they're lying.
Big Ed tracks down the waiter who brought Vera her last martini. Within moments, he determines that yes, the waiter broke protocol and brought the martini to Vera on a cart because he was helping Vera escape. Big Ed's all, "How much is she paying you, Billy?" Billy's all, "Pay...ing...me?" Big Ed replies, "Yes, paying you. It better be a lot, because after I get through with you, kid, you'll never work in this town again." Billy's all, "I love her!" This throws Big Ed for a loop.
