Double-crossed by Harry, Lloyd spikes his drink with some ""Turbo Lax"", and then follows his friend to Mary's family mansion. After telling her about the briefcase, he takes her back to their suite on 'the hog' to show her the case ... full of IOU notes. He makes his move ... but is told he only has about a one-in-a-million chance. Nicholas barges into the room - and holds them hostage while he plans his escape.
Meanwhile Harry returns, and after a fight with Lloyd nominates himself to be killed first - and takes a few rounds to the chest. Suddenly he jumps to his feet and fires off a few shots (all miss) as the Feds enter the room, led by the female doctor from Diagnosis Murder.
Mary's husband is returned, but in the next scene as Harry and Lloyd are walking down a dusty road and we are told - ""First Mary dumps us, then the cops take our nest-egg, then our Hog breaks down..."". They hope for better luck when a ""Hawaiian Tropic"" coach full of beautiful, bronzed ladies in bikinis pulls-up alongside and the windows open as one to a blast of heavenly music. Three women leave the coach and tell the guys they are on a national bikini tour and looking for two oil-boys to grease them up before every competition...
Harry - ""Lady, you are in luck! There is a town about 3 miles that way - I'm sure you'll find a couple guys there!"".
Lloyd grabs his friend by the head and screams abuse - they chase after the coach ... to tell the driver that the town is back in the other direction! The movie ends with a solid game of ""anti-quitsies, triple-stamped, no-erasies"" tag.
