Sweet Shop owner Louie needs to raise $300. The Boys try to sell their car to raise the money, but are unable to because the car falls apart when they try to show it to a prospective buyer. They decide to go to the bank and take a loan out on it, but just as they arrive the bank is robbed. The robbers bump into them and drop the bag full of the stolen money. As Sach picks up the bag to return it to the robber, Cathy (Teala Loring), a photographer, takes his photo.
After trying unsuccessfully to get the photo back, it winds up on the front page of the newspaper and Sach becomes a wanted criminal. Slip pretends to be a notorious gangster, Midge Casalotti, in order to get the stolen money back and to clear Sach's name. In the end, Sach is cleared and the gangsters, led by Ace Deuce, are apprehended.
The film ends in an explosion, where a spare tire with the words, "Dead End" on it falls around the necks of Sach and Slip.
