Nash:I'm poor. I don't believe it. I'm - I'm poor!
Joe:Well, you're rich in friends.
Nash:I've worked for over 20 years. I've been diligent. I've saved, I've planned for Cassidy's college, and my future.
Joe:Not to mention a share of my new fishing boat.
Nash:This is not a joking matter.
Joe:I'm not joking, man. But, you know Nashman, it happened. At some point, you're going to have to accept it.
Nash:Well, that may be so. But we're a helluva way from that point.
Joe:Well, there's a bright side. I mean, think of all the money-making schemes you and I can get involved in, huh? You wanna cry, I'll steer.

On the way to the call of a suicidal jumper, Joe informs Nash that wife Inger wants an expensive remodel of their bathroom. On top of a building, Nash discovers the jumper is his accountant, Joel Rasmussen, despondent over having lost all of Nash's savings. A flock of pigeons distracts Joel and he falls to his death.

The SIU is unable to discover the reason for Joel's desperation, except for an investment project called the Eternal Palace, a combination sports book and church. Using Pepe to wade through the paper trail, Nash discovers he is a 4.006 percent investor in the project which has gone bankrupt. A persistent name which surfaces is Christine Telaferro, the corporate secretary listed in the paperwork.

Meanwhile, Joe receives a $25,000 estimate of the bathroom remodeling costs from Dove, Nash's recommended handyman. Joe decides to do the plumbing and electrical project himself, with the aid of Harvey. After acquiring a hot toilet from a shady dealer working out of his truck, Joe and Harvey manage to burn down the house. Daughter Cassidy is about to start college, but is put on the waiting list for dorm apartments. Her lover Evan comes to the rescue by agreeing to share a Berkeley apartment with her. Father Nick, having recovered from his heart attack, and sister Stacy, tackle his latest hobby, scuba diving, much to Nash's consternation.

Christine Telaferro turns out to be Tamara Van Zant, another shady woman and former lover of Nash. Nash arrests her, but her new husband Jonas shows up. Evan and Harvey are put on surveillance, and discover a third character, a Kari Michaels, Jonas' personal assistant. All three are involved in an investment scheme to defraud the Marin County Council of Churches out of 10 million dollars. Nash sours the deal, and offers deals to Kari and Jonas to turn each other in. Christine returns Nash's lost savings, but Nash refuses her veiled bribe.

After seducing Kari, Christine kills her. Christine creates an alibi by offering to turn in Jonas. Christine blows up her car with the dead Kari in it, setting up Jonas for the murder. Nash arrives at the explosion to arrest Jonas.

Nick makes up with Nash over the scuba incident. Nash agrees to rent out the soon-to-be vacated Lisa's house to Joe and his family, as Cassidy is able to get into the Berkeley dorms without Evan's help. Nash intercepts Christine, now in disguise, outside a department store and arrests her.
