Billy and Sydney win the big 'brotherhood' local basketball tournament, taking home the 5 grand prize and a trophy.

On the way back, Billy becomes his own worst enemy again when he makes a stupid bet with Sydney that he can dunk. He can't, and loses all his winnings.

He opens up to Gloria, who has been patiently waiting for him, and she leaves him now they have no money again.

Desperate to win her back, he asks a favour from Sydney, who asks a favour from his pal who works as a security guard at the studios - and Gloria finally has her dream to appear on Jeopardy ... where every subject is something she has studied, and she wins over $14,000.

She forgives Billy after he wins her over with a song, and gives him $2grand to buy a suit for job interviews.

Meanwhile, Sydney is robbed and loses everything he has. He calls in his favour from Billy - but needs his $2grand to bet against some guys at the park. Billy is torn, but needs to help Sydney - so this time Gloria leaves him for good.

Billy and Sydney turn it on and win - Billy even dunks for the final point. But he can't win her back.

The Italian brothers catch up to him - he hands over his winnings, to clear his debt. Billy knows Gloria won't come back, and leaves with Sydney to play another day.
