Eliot has turned Hardison into a warrior; now, it is Parker's turn to teach him new skills. As a child in the foster system, Parker learned how to boost cars. This skill set is necessary to help a new client accused of stealing a used truck which, unbeknownst to the client, had been cloned. Bill Engvall plays Duke Penzer, rival of honest Art's Car Sales. Nate gets ready to make his opening gambit: to steal Penzer's baby, (racing car) Veronica. This prompts Duke to steal Nate's baby (Sophie) and the chess game begins. The fun-time car boost duo infiltrates Lefty's boost crew while Eliot introduces the Salvadorans. Parker's big heart wants to protect Lefty's mutt, the last vestige of who Parker used to be. Will the crew be able to play a few EMPs and pull off the con, while giving a young girl a new life? Written by LA-Lawyer

When Elliot is delivering the load of cars, they say "Hand over the keys." Then when the alarms go off, Pinzer uses the keys to disarm the alarms. The cars were boosted, so there never should have been any keys. See more »


Alec Hardison: So, car thief. How'd that happen?
Parker: Started when I was about twelve. Met this kid, Kelly, in the foster system. He was about four or five years older. Taught me how to make a slim Jim, how to use a jiggler key, you know.
Alec Hardison: What happened to Kelly?
Parker: We boosted a bait car. He saw the cops coming and ran. I never saw it coming.
Alec Hardison: He left you behind?
Parker: Never looked back. Spent six months in juvie and never saw Kelly again.
