Monique flags down a pit boss so she can tattle on Tommy. On second viewing, though, she's pretty much in the right. I still think she loses the moral war, though, because her obsession is so ugly. She enjoys this for the opportunity to screw Tommy over, not because she's the greatest employee ever. Tommy flirts poorly with Alexis, who flirts poorly back. It's sad and very "Lowered Expectations." Someone at the table asks if they're dating, and he says they went out once or twice. And I see what he's saying: She's not his girlfriend. But get this, Tommy: there's the letter of the law, and the spirit of the law, you know? And right now you are fucking with both. Shut up and get that girl out of here. Do you want Monique to win? Er, I mean, do you want to "get in trouble"? Alexis takes off with her winnings, and Monique picks up the damn phone. Pit Boss asks if Alexis is or was his girlfriend, and Tommy totally starts stuttering and eating shit. Like, you would think he was stealing money from the casino with that kind of behavior. Monique gives the sickest grin I've ever seen as her eyes roll up in her head and her toes curl up and she gets all "Venus Butterfly" and it's sickening. "We went out once or twice, and she cuts my hair [what?]...We went to high school but she's not my girlfriend." Everybody's reactions to Tommy make me think -- after all this -- that he is kind of a douchebag. Like, more than I thought. But still, I've gotta say Monique is so much worse. The Pit Boss informs Tommy that Monique "already called 'D,' so go see 'D' on your break." I called that guy Dee before, but I think his name is really just D. Wow. He's the really, really Mob-looking Boss of Bosses. And you what, the best way to prove your casino and family are not mafia-related is to have bosses and managers with names like Hamilton and Regis, I think. Those are your best "bets." Next: Justine the psychic is led utterly astray by her sartorial spirit guides.
