Old-school cop Dan Stark and modern-day detective Jack Bailey expose the big picture of small crime. Pursuing a routine investigation of a stolen humidifier, Jack and Dan are inadvertently thrust into a much larger case involving drug smugglers, hired assassins and a stolen green golf bag. Reminded of the way he busted punks back in the good old days, Dan convinces Jack to go along for the ride, and in their reckless pursuit of justice, the two wind up risking their lives, breaking a flurry of department regulations and reminding their boss, Lieutenant Ana Ruiz, and Jack's ex-girlfriend, Assistant District Attorney Liz Traynor, why these good guys will be spending many more days investigating seemingly minor crimes.

The burglar’s cell phone goes off and he tells the other person on the other end that he is just walking into “work”. His name is Julius. Julius sees a television set and complains that it isn’t a flat screen. But his burglary is interrupted when a car pulls into the driveway. Julius is trying to pick up the television set but it is too heavy and he drops it. He runs out and takes the nearest thing, a humidifier.

Bailey tries to convince his Lieutenant that he is a good cop and starts to complain about a report being completed as he says it “looks like a 3rd grader did it.” It turned out that it was the Lieutenant who did the report. Realizing he overstepped his boundaries, Detective Bailey backpedals and says that he will pick up his partner Stark. ..
