    alright, there is no more blood to be squeezed from the Monica Mancuso stone. :)

    overall not a bad episode. a bit flashback heavy but still new flashbacks so it was good.

    All the exterior CGI shots have been putting the Montecito location across the street from Mandalay Bay and Luxor, at the bottom of the strip, in the spot just south of the Tropicana.

    The view from Ed's new office however, puts the Montecito where Treasure Island or The Mirage are, right in the heart of the strip. It's not even on the same side of the street, so you can't just pretend that the casino is 3 blocks long.

    I wish these guys would make up their minds. :)

    There certainly isn't any fat to be squeezed form her. Did you see that shot of her lying facedown and topless? Yuck! Talk about a stick figure....

    This episode showed Danny, Mike, and Ed in a very "chummy" fashion and it was GREAT to watch. Suddenly these guys act like friends that have known each other for years. They really took some of the stiffness out of the show and we LOVED it! The tongue-in-cheek flashbacks to Monica were a riot, like when Ed slapped her on the backside "put a game on". Ha!

    Glad I was not the only one to notice that. The spot the CGI Montecito has occupied since day one was at the end of the strip in the cargo area of McCarran Airport. Pretty good spot for it since they can easily erase some hangars & maintain the "realistic" look of the strip.

    But now they have moved the hotel to the TI property. At first, I thought they took over the spot occupied by the "flying saucer mall", but when you look out the window in Ed's new office, you see the Mirage & Venetian. Maybe they wanted to be closer to the Wynn so they could compete with him better! :D

    I am goofy when it comes to details. I am the kind of person who notices a sandwich that has been half eaten in one shot & only has one bite taken out in the next. So when I noticed them completely uprooting an entire casino, I picked up on it pretty quick.

    I noticed this too, especially when Ed and Danny were leaving the police station, very chummy.

    I thought it hilarious when Ed just kinda nodded to Danny to start the fight. The fight on the other hand....Whenever someone punches two people coming at him....I liked how Danny parodied it though :D

    How could they have thought Monica could have stolen the money?
    She didn't have the necessary muscle mass to lift it.

    I thought for an awful moment that that Sarasvati (the Indian accounting girl who is hot hot hot) might've had something to do with the robbery. Thank goodness she didn't. Now let's get her some more screen time, dammit!

    Gunny was calling Ed "Colonel". We knew he was CIA, and I think we knew he was Special Forces, but did we know he was a Colonel, and how did Gunny know?

    I thought it was more honorary, given Ed's relationship with Lt. McCoy...

    I'm not even sure if they did that. Didn't the wide exteriors in the episode still show the M at the regular location at the bottom of the strip? I think they just flat out messed up on the view from Ed's office (or didn't care).

    $2.8M in $100 bills only weighs 62 lbs. Not that bad.

    As soon as they showed the video you could tell it was her boney body before she even turned her head. Can't they just get her off the show already. If she is in next weeks episode I am deleting my season pass. Enough with her.

    She was a stupid edition to the show. She has been dead for 3 or 4 episodes.

    I hope you can appreciate the irony of calling her appearance "stupid" while misspelling "addition".

    I just had eaten dinner when that came on the screen. I actually think the shot of her legs was worse.

    I was hoping to find out how much a weekend weather guy gets paid.

    2 pts to the people who figured out how to steal the money.

    Here's another unrealistic point:

    Do you think it's stupid for Mike to have weekends off? We're talking about Vegas here, where the weekends are the most busiest time. My uncle who lives there tells me that the casinos are almost dead on weekdays except for holidays and major conventions.
