The Lesson - S2-E3

Plot hole: At the end of the episode Trevor Speed sits with his face in his hands looking like the world has stopped turning. In fact he has just sold a worthless plot of land for £450,000. Okay, he was conned out of £150,000 of that by the grifters, but he is still £300,000 up. A grifter like him would be over the moon - he is used to taking elderly ladies for the occasional short con making him £80 or so. He's just won the lottery. He'd be happy.

Mickey 'Bricks' Stone: Albert, what the hell were you doing in a church today?
Albert Stroller: Gil Stewart died this afternoon. I was there at the end.
Mickey 'Bricks' Stone: Oh God, I'm so sorry Albert. You two were like brothers.
Albert Stroller: We worked Vegas together. That man was made for bright lights. Poor bastard - died of a stroke in a dental surgery.
Mickey 'Bricks' Stone: Well, someone should sue them.
Albert Stroller: Aye, he was pretending to be the dentist.

Trivia: In some versions of this episode the name of the newspaper the grifters con has been rather clumsily dubbed over as "The Weekend World" rather than the original "The Sunday World", which is a real newspaper.
