In the morning Dennis calls and tells Nate he’s in for $5 million. As they start the transfer, Henry and Randy see the transfer and decide to put a stop to it, while Stone manage to hear that and ask them to get ready their forces. Henry and Randy was then seen in the bank where they run into Dennis and Nate (when an officer tells him that someone smashes Retzing's hummer). A confrontation begins between Dennis and Randy and Nate pulls the team out. Later, the Retzings get calls that their checks have all bounced. It turns out that Randy was supposed to signed a deal that he propose to Sophie earlier but since Henry was distracted by his hummer's window broken, Randy have sign a deal that gives 51% of interest in their company to her instead.

They've realize that they've been tricked as their actual goal was for Henry to pass the corporate power over to Randy when both of them see what Dennis was transfering. As they try to figure out what to do, Lieutenant Stone barges in with his men, arresting Henry for undeclared transfer of money with the combinations of the previous fraudulent and corrupt activities under the RICO act. Turns out, Nate made a deal with them to get Retzing by asking him to give him two days and once Retzing makes a minor transgression, they'll leave. Soon, as Henry was taken away, Nate calls Dennis reminding him to check the names on the list he shows him as they are actually a list of names that lost their homes to the Retzing family. With all the company assents under their control, including the Retzings' house, Nate proceeds to put all the people they evicted back in their homes, except their client, who they put in Retzing’s house. He then reminds them to leaves the keys under the mat after they pack their stuffs in two to three days.

Added DiffLines:

* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Randy is a playboy looking for a good time, while Dennis is the one who makes their father's company work, which makes him a little irritable when he thinks he doesn't get enough recognition. Intimately, the team gets Retzing to switch managerial control over to Randy, who they then trick into signing away control of the company.

* LoopholeAbuse: The Retzing's bread and butter. Their entire business method is geared to abusing the loopholes in the contract and good business laws.

* ButForMeItWasTuesday: It's doubtful that even if Dennis had read the names on the list Nate gave him, he wouldn't have realized they were all past victims of the family, which Nate counted on.

* TheUnfavorite: Papa Retzing ''clearly'' favors his elder son, a useless playboy, at the expense of his younger son, the one responsible for their current wealth.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent/IronicEcho: As Nate gives the house key of the Retzing's to the Wayne family in the end, you can see Randy in the background futilely pleading with the cops about his eviction just as Wayne tried to do in the beginning.

* TheCameo: Jonathan Frakes is the guy sitting next to Nate in the hospital.
* CutawayGag: As Hardison doctors the photo of Ute, the German luge athlete, with Sophie's head as part of the con, he mutters an apology to Ute, to himself. Cut to Ute finding the doctored photo and very pissed about this.



* HoistByHisOwnPetard: At the end, Leverage kicks the Retzings our of their home.
* IdleRich: Randy.

home because they declared it a "corporate asset."
* IdleRich: Randy. He spends his time going to fancy ski resorts or strip clubs. He has various business schemes that any good business mind would laugh at, like paintball done from hot air balloons.
* LoopholeAbuse: The Retzing's bread and butter. Their entire business method is geared to abusing the loopholes in the contract and good business laws.
* OhCrap: The Retzings go through these when their checks bounce, the accountant calls them saying there are some problems, and then they realize Randy signed away the majority share of their company. Lastly, the police arrive to arrest Papa Retzing.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Lt. Stone wants to take down the mark for their fraud and is willing to let Nate slide if Nate can get the Retzings to break the law enough for a Rico charge to be applied.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainBall: Randy fails at the corner of any business deal: Read what you are about to sign. Because he fails to do this, he signs away 51% of the company.

* AdultFear: Everyone worries about contractors; they're one of the bigger expenses and you let them into your home. Turn it up to eleven with a corrupt contractor who deliberately does a bad job so he can ''steal'' your home.

The mark is Henry Retzing. He gets contracts to fix homes but does shoddy work and stretches his work out, but then puts a loan on the house and when the customers can’t pay up, he can take ownership of the house. Hardison tells the crew about Retzing’s two sons. One, Randy, just whiles the day away snowboarding and other non-serious things, and the other, Dennis, is actually running the company.
