To land a new promotion with the boss, Ted invites him over for dinner and a playful game of pool — until Jennings starts betting the shirt off his back and a lot more playing against Vicki.
So the episode's moral about gambling was lost; this episode was lots of fun to perform and is most notable for the truly unreal pool shots by billiard expert Lou Butera. Both cast and crew had a shot at the billiard table between takes, and perhaps not a few coins changed hands over the felt. Regrettably, the “computer point-of-view” optical of Vicki taking in the angles for a shoot was terribly simplistic and should've asked some hungry grad students to compose a “Terminator-buster” one.
