Storyline

Arnie, a jeweller who retired early on health grounds, sells Del and his mates some gold chains but then says he wants them back for a previous customer. However he will ensure that he gets double the price to satisfy Del and his friends. As he is selling the chains to the other customer, Mr. Stavros, he collapses with a heart attack and is taken away, along with the money and the chains, by two ambulance men. However, it is a con. They are not real ambulance drivers but Arnie's sons, helping him relieve punters of their money. But then Cassandra hears that Arnie is going to sell the chains to Denzil. Cue Del and Co. to pose as ambulance men and wait for Arnie's next 'heart attack.' Written by don @ minifie-1
