The banality of crime. Two young men, Dignan and Anthony, walk along talking about "Starsky and Hutch." They're on their way to burglarize a house. After, they go to a café, play some pinball. They argue about the burglary and talk to their friend Bob about another scheme. They talk to a guy about buying a gun, just to intimidate. Anthony breaks into a car to steal a wallet. With Bob, they plan and stage a holdup and talk about it afterward at a burger stand: armed robbery for $183. They're pleased. The two pals race each other.
They're not criminals, but everybody's got to have a dream.

and Luke Wilson
, who had never been in a movie before. See more
Where's Huggy Bear?
Dignan, he's not there, Huggy Bear is not in every single episode.
Wait a second, running to different payphones? What the hell is that all about?
That's what I'm trying to explain to you.
See sometimes, Anthony, you can have a dream of an episode, and then you think that it actually happened.
No, Dignan it's a real episode. The killer's leading them across the city by calling different payphones.
