Plot Synopsis

Will feels the heat from his poker-playing pals when their weekly get-together is compromised by an obnoxious Grace whose ineffective gamesmanship leaves her in debt to everyone, but she begs him for another chance — and confides her secret weapon to regain her losses. Elsewhere, Karen gloats when she and Jack convince her equally haughty and naughty rival to be her "guinea pig" as the woman submits to experimental plastic surgery.
