Sylvia and her canasta club invest their pishke — the winnings they get from playing cards — in Maxwell’s next play. But there may not be a play after all, when CiCi aggressively steals the cab of Maxwells's other investor, Charles Haste. Knowing that Charles can’t meet the real CiCi, Fran impersonates her to help Maxwell close the deal.

- When Fran mistakenly thinks C.C. came out to her as gay, she tells her "You know, now you and your special friend can dance together at Disneyland!" This is telling as the show was shot in Los Angeles which is near Disneyland, while it is set in New York which is much closer to Disney World in Florida.
