Plot Overview

Tom DuBois is mistakenly arrested as the XBox killer, who had killed someone over a game of Madden. Desperate, Tom calls Huey and begs him to find the real killer so Tom will not have to be anally raped in prison. Huey calls on Ed Wuncler III for help, but things go awry. Ed the third involves his loose-cannon friend Gin Rummy, and they hold up an Iraqi-owned business.


  • Large parts of Gin Rummy's dialogue are taken from either speeches by Donald Rumsfeld or dialogue from Pulp Fiction.
  • Almost every line spoken in the convenience store is political satire.
