It's like The Sting but way cooler. I don't think I've ever seen a better constructed plot in a TV show than this episode. Such great use of the characters too, Coach and Harry especially. I started binge watching this show again 30 years later just because I knew I'd get to this episode, and I wasn't disappointed.
