Theo continues to open boxes.

The Eyewitness News van speeds up a hill, with Naktomi Tower lit in the distance.

Al Powell leans against LAPD patrol car 859. “Well,” he asks, “What are we going to to now? Arrest them for not paying their electric bill?”

Al looks askance at Big Johnson.

“We’re on the way, ” says Big Johnson.

Theo is humming and spinning through a stack of $100,000 bearer bonds. He laughs hysterically.

Hans picks up his walkie talkie. “I wish to talk to the FBI,” he says.
