The family gets away. The mobster sees their name written down and sets to find them. Steve who's been trying to get the mobster shows up and sees their name and picks them up. He tells them, if they want to live they should work together but they decide to go it on their own. But when their child is taken by the mobster they have no choice but to turn to Steve.

Oh, those Lovejoys!
10 December 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Andy Griffith and Joyce Van Patten play one of the nicest couples you will see on "Hawaii Five-O". Other than the fact that they are grifters who love swindling suckers, they are awfully good parents and are hard to hate. Unfortunately, during the course of one of their swindles, they accidentally steal mob money and their days on the Earth appear very, very limited! They now need to decide whether to work with Five-O or try their luck avoiding almost certain death.

I think one of the reasons this episode works so well is the casting. you just can't hate Griffith and Van Patten since they both usually played such nice people and looked so wholesome. In addition, the show seemed a bit lighter and more of a sense of humor tan usual--resulting in a nice change of pace that's worth seeing.
