In the guest house where they spent their honeymoon, Nicole chains Milo to the bed and escapes in his car. He rips the headboard off the bed, and steals another guest's motor to chase after her. Nicole heads straight to Earl's tattoo parlour - straight past a gas station where Irene's two heavies are waiting.
Nicole checks out the tattoo parlour, and makes an excuse to allow a bit of time to snoop around. In Earl's office she sees a picture of him - as part of the Police bowling team ... he's a cop! She hears a noise in the closet - and it's little Jimmy, all tied up.
Earl comes back, but Nicole and Jimmy manage to get out in time. Irene's heavies soon nab them - and Jimmy makes a run for it. They take Nicole to a strip club, and force her to phone Milo - saying they'll harm her if he doesn't show with the money.
Milo spies their car in the parkling lot outside. He tells Nicole on the phone to make an excuse and get to the bathroom. He steals the bag of Irene's cash from their parked car and enters the club. Inside, he causes a diversion but throwing the bag of cash around - the strippers and patrons go wild. The two heavies desperately try to get the cash back, but are beaten senseless by an Amazonian lady.
Milo phones the station to ask where Bobby is. He finds out that they are moving a few hundred thousand items of evidence that night, and he starts to piece it all together. They get down to the evidence locker warehouse. Inside, Earl is stealing bags of drugs from earlier cases when Bobby stops him.
There is a gunshot. Milo and Nicole warn the guard on duty and break in. They find Bobby, injured, and Milo starts to hunt for Earl. Earl gets the better of him - and is about to shoot him in the head, when Nicole finds a few boxes for the Gotti trials - and takes out a shotgun.
Earl is a little scared, and Milo manages to break free. The cops show up and everything is sorted.
Meanwhile Stewart has finally managed to break free from Irene - he phones Nicole to complain about his broken leg - and the horse tranquillizers, but she doesn't have any time for him.
She is desperate to get back to the office and write her story. She apologises to Milo for putting her work first - but he understands. He drops her off at the police station to collect his bounty. Outside one of the cops goads him, so he smacks him in the face.
They spend the night happily together in the cells, separated by bars.
