In this light-hearted (and slightly light-headed) episode, Angel (Stuart Margolin) prevails upon Jim (James Garner) to recover some money from gambler Tom "Chicken" Little. When Little turns up dead, Jim finds out that the man was involved in an elaborate swindle, and that the money Angel had been after actually belonged to Mob. The only way Jim can recover the cash and avoid being offed by the Mob himself is to stage a swindle of his own--and that's why the episode ends with a free-for-all at Angel's "funeral."
