Later, Jonesy freaks out about deliveries because he doesn't think they have money for them. Diane, the zaftig lady from earlier (tie-dye), tells Ripley she's been offered another job. He says that he hopes she turned it down. He hands her Jack's book bag and tells her to fill everything from the cage into it. It's $200,000. She wonders if he needs money for "a cappuccino or something." Whatever. Jonesy asks Ripley what he's doing and he says, "Living the dream." Then, he starts singing "Let It Ride" by Bachman Turner Overdrive. He drives to Nicky's casino singing as we see shots of Bunny taking a bubble bath and everyone else from the show looking really concerned.
He plops the book bag on a roulette table and says he wants to bet $250,000. The pit boss says that he will need to get permission from management to raise the betting limit, and Ripley tells him to hurry because his "pants are getting wet." Okay. Luckily, management arrives at just that moment. It's Nicky, and he wants to know if Ripley's ready to take his offer. Ripples says that he wants to bet instead. Nicky somehow knows that it's a $250,000 sum. Good counter. If Ripley loses, he'll start work for Nicky on Monday. Ripley asks what color car Nicky has -- it's black (both of his cars are). So Ripley bets red. SCANDALOUS. He bets and wins. Lots of cheering from the crowd. He says he wants to bet once more for luck. He lets it ride, and he wins. Things are really looking up for Ripley.
Ripley bursts into his house and gets Jack and takes him to the Viva, where the marquee has been hung and wired. That only took a few hours, I guess. They light up the sign and sing "Viva Las Vegas" (very very badly) together as Peter looks at them from his car. This is one horribly shitty program.
