During one of these criminal acts, Oliver meets a wealthy young girl named Jenny Foxworth. This meeting will forever change his life. Written by

During the "Good Company" montage Jenny's house number is 1125 ("1125 5th Ave." as seen on Oliver's new tag). Right after the montage, as Jenny leaves for school, it is now 140 (as seen above the house door). Thirty seconds later, when Winston answers the door, it is 1125 again. In some shots the house number disappears altogether. See more
