El Doradothe casino Deepa and Shubhra walk into unnoticingly, not knowning all casinos are connected, they spot JJ and Texas, who ignore them since they are busy looking for a blackjack table
MAD TVback in the hotel room, everyone enjoys a funny episode of MadTv, portraying something to the effect of the the dark side of i products, screeching Heidi Klum, the ferocious Yao Ming and a very distorted sketch of Condi Rice
