A small cab company finds itself on the verge of extinction when the A-Team steps in and helps them with a major problem... a rival no-holds-barred cab company that will stop at nothing to control the complete territory currently shared by both companies. Cal agrees to give Hannibal and the team 10% ownership of Lone Star Taxi if they can find some way to stop Love Cabs and their shady leader, Crane, who has no reservations about fixing meters, dealing dope out of his cabs and hiring ex-cons to drive them. The team breaks into Crane's estate in an effort to shake him up, but have they truly rattled him, or did they just knock over a hornet's nest? Written by R. Bernard Ment
