The incredibly fast-moving camera shoots us this time to Mandalay Bay, another hotel/casino I've never heard of. It's that shiny clear gold color of gross Chanel sunglasses. Why is it taking us there? Is it on the Strip? Is it a corporate monstrosity? Perhaps. In any case we're probably going to see more of the Mandalay Bay exterior than any other location, in this episode -- hey, maybe Tim and Tom (I mean Tom and Tim!) will be there. Oh no, now the Mortal Kombat ball of camera is hurtling towards the Nugget. I see -- I hope the Kombat Cam isn't tired. Well, I still hope Tom and Tim (I mean Tim and Tom!) are at Mandalay Bay. I hope they stay there. Well, the yippy one, at least.
Aaand...no such luck. Little Maurice brings some exciting news into T&T's office that a high-roller named Geoff Mills is in town. Tim (I mean...oh, wait, that's actually Tim, right) impresses me by remembering not only who Geoff Mills is, but that he is normally a customer of Mandalay Bay. This will be even more impressive when we meet the supremely unmemorable and disgusting Geoff Mills himself. Maurice also seems impressed with Tim's knowledge, and explains that Geoff Mills's credit line is somewhere between one half and one whole million dollars. Man, I'm glad that wasn't my credit line when I was Geoff Mills's intellectual age. Or in grade school, or in college. Man, college -- I could have done between one half and one whole million dollars more damage than I did! Tom continues to stare into space as Maurice leads Tim through every aspect of his job as a hotelier -- "suggesting" that they "might" be able to get their party to change hotels, giving him the telephone number, and watching him dial it to make sure he doesn't get distracted. It's an 818 number, which is L.A., so God knows what this guy's going to be like. Well, it's The Casino, so he's going to be outlandishly repulsive, but you know what I mean. Twenty-eight-year-old real estate mogul millionaire? I have this feeling the "real estate mogul" and "millionaire" parts of that phrase are maybe not connected in any way.
Maurice seems a little disappointed in Tim's performance on the phone, but I think he does a fantastic job with Geoff, considering how deeply unlikable Tim normally is. Tom starts smiling into space in sort of a short-bus way for no reason as Tim explains some Vegas stuff to Geoff about the New Nugget Odds Dice Policy, which my forum posters already knew about before this episode even aired, because they are awesome, but which I don't understand anyway. Basically there are some numbers he says, and then he explains that there used to be some other numbers, but that these numbers he just said somehow make the game better in some way. Maybe they're code for "pony" or "Seth Cohen." Odds: Don't get 'em, don't need 'em. Okay, I think it really is code, because Tim explains to us that these new odds and "aggressive limits" are the only thing that are going to get guys like Geoff off the Strip. "Aggressive limits." I like that, it's like "aggressive boundaries," like: you over there, come no closer! Tim now tells us that the downside (singular, you'll note) of a guy like Geoff Mills is that "if he catches a hot hand, he could be very dangerous and beat the casino for hundreds of thousands of dollars in no time." That's the least of your worries, Timmy. Wait till you meet them.
