First of all this show gets bonus points because David Keith is from Knoxville, TN!
The show starts off with a man and his son sneaking out of a hotel room while the owner is banging on the door requesting his money. The dad told his son, ” live out of your bag not a closet.”
Twenty years later we see Bob/ Robert with a woman getting ready to leave for a flight. We see Robert as a salesman but we all know he is a con artist! When he returns on another flight he was on the phone with Lindsay saying he was going to his hotel room. He then switched wallets and phones and went into his second home with Cat. This home and woman seem a bit fancier than the first.
Thatcher ( John Voight) who is Cat’s father offered Bob a position for his oil company. The news to his father, John, who is real excited because “they are handing him the keys to the safe.” Cat is the mark for them to clean out the corporation and John is his family. We see Bob wanting out of the con man business but his father tries to talk him out of it. Bob wants to take the position and be a legit businessman. Bob has a little competition with Thatcher’s sons wanting to have the family business.
In Midland with Lindsay, Bob gets a visit from his dad telling him that the con is over and that if he didn’t leave now the town would burn him. Bob refused to leave her. Later that night, Bob sneaked out of the house like a thief!
This is a hard show to watch because he is robbing the poor and the rich blind.
