In the 'Cuda, Joe informs Nash that he has advertised the Bridges and Dominguez (B&D) Detective Agency. A bus pulls along side with a billboard of Nash and Joe. Suddenly a truck pulls along side of the 'Cuda, and a Rodeo Rider jumps into the back of the 'Cuda and tries to strangle Nash. Nash swerves the 'Cuda and throws Rodeo Rider #1 out. A second Rodeo Rider jumps on the hood of the 'Cuda. Rider #2 slides off the hood and hits the pavement unconscious. Nash finds a phony Bridges and Dominguez business card on Rider #2.
At the SIU, Rodeo Rider #2 refuses to talk, but he is identified as Edward Clinton Harris, with a record of robbery. There is no trace of Rodeo Rider #1. Nash and Joe call up the phony B&D Detective Agency, where assistant Jason answers but hangs up on Nash and Joe. Nash and Joe visit the Agency, and find Jason there. A former client shows up and begins beating on Nash - the client lost his job because a B&D investigation revealed a minor police record. Nash pulls a gun and handcuffs the unruly client.
Finally, Nash and Joe track down the phony Nash Bridges doing a magic show in a Children's Ward. It is Big Tiny, and Nash captures Tiny and ends the magic show. But Joe is mysteriously grabbed and tied up, so Nash handcuffs Tiny to a railing to go look for Joe. Nash is roped by a Rodeo Clown, and the Clown tries to kill Nash with a pair of cardiac paddles. The Clown is electrocuted unconscious when Nash pours water on the floor. Meanwhile Tiny has escaped his handcuffs. At the SIU, the Clown refuses to talk.
Cassidy's former room mate, Miranda calls about a death. At a frat party, James Porter has apparently died after a drinking binge. But tests reveal that a tequila bottle was laced with peanut oil, of which James Porter was severely allergic to peanut oil. Cassidy and Rachel inform Raymond Porter and his wife Susan that Raymond's son was murdered. Raymond reveals that James was working on an investigative article for the school newspaper, that perhaps his room mate Brian may know something. Brian reveals that James wrote everything in his laptop. On their way to get the laptop, Cassidy and Rachel intercept Brett O'Bannion from taking the laptop.
The Clown also refuses to talk. Nash asks Antwon to set up an appointment via Jason with the phony Nash - Tiny. Tiny is in the middle of sex with a former client - Bobby Wheeler's wife. But the promise of a ten grand fee brings Tiny out, as Nash, Joe and Antwon grab Tiny. At Tiny's office, another Cowboy tries to kill Nash with a shotgun. The Cowboy reveals he was hired by a Clown.

Nash searches the trunk of Jason's car and finds incriminating evidence, but Jason is there with a gun. But Nash and Joe disarm Jason, but not before he has punched Tiny in the nose.
