Despite his past experience with the Bunco Squad, police detective Dennis Becker (Joe Santos) somehow gets talked into a crooked land investment which wipes out nearly all his savings. To help out his pal Dennis--and incidentally to keep the bank from foreclosing on his mortage (it makes sense in context!)--Jim cooks up a scheme to swindle the swindlers, the first step of which finds him posing as oil-rich Texan "James W. Farnsworth." Unfortunately, Jim himself is taken in by the proverbial "pretty face" (and few are prettier than guest star Linda Evans). Pat Finley makes her first appearance as Dennis Becker's wife Peggy.
