Episode Recap

Dora baby-sits for a wealthy F. Hubert Fellowes. She has set up a plan to rob him with her boyfriend Mike and his buddy Gino and another kid. The four carry out the robbery, but as they are about to leave, Fellowes returns and tries to stop them. He is knifed by Gino and killed. The three make off with $32,000. However, since the bills are all in hundreds, they realize that trying to use it would be grossly suspicious. As the crew hides out in a hot, tiny rat hole of an apartment, tensions rise. Gino especially can't figure out why there's no mention of the murder in the news. When Gino goes to a pawn shop and tries to break the bills, he is shocked to see the owner of the shop with Fellowes' lighter. Realizing Mike stole it and pawned it, he goes back to the apartment and wreaks violence on the two occupants. Dora flees with him, and while they're driving, a car overtakes them. It turns out that the two men from the pawn shop overtake them. Fellowes was a big-time gangster and their boss.
