While his old shoes are being repaired, Reed is wearing a new pair which squeak and drive Malloy crazy. A neighbor reports a break-in but it is the owner breaking up his furniture due to his wife leaving him and the country. A near accident causes them to pull over a van for no brake lights and the driver is very anti-police. Mac sends them to a demolition site where a young boy with bad eyesight has hidden. Malloy is hoisted by crane to pluck down the boy frozen on a beam. While the officers stop at the shoe repair store to retrieve Reed's shoes, Reed notices a bank robbery going down across the street. After a couple of shots followed by a hostage situation, Malloy provides the robbers a car but the doors are locked. Written by Anonymous
