'''The principal characters journey to UsefulNotes/LasVegas.''' At least one [[TheGamblingAddict has a gambling problem]] and will end up dead broke or winning a ton of money (bonus points if an urgent need for cash is why they go to Vegas). Most likely, one or all end up in jail and/or [[AccidentalMarriage married]]. It's possible that someone might host their friend's StagParty here. Don't be surprised if there's a DrunkenMontage or BingeMontage. Don't be surprised either to see Wayne Newton, the former teen pop star of the 1950s who popularized the notion of musicians relocating to Vegas in order to find steady work within the city's many high-profile night spots, and continued to perform off-and-on in the city well into the new millennium. If children are involved, expect some harsh MoodWhiplash when they confront adult themes for the first time, and [[HilarityEnsues hilarity may or may not ensue]], although this story element has become obscure past the year 2000. In reality, Las Vegas has actually become much more open to people who do ''not'' gamble or who have kids, and they even have a ''support group'' people can call if they have a gambling problem!
