The episode begins with Dan Stark and Jack Bailey in a truck trailer, about to jump out and give “the element of surprise” as Dan puts it. They jump out and there are guys with guns shooting at them. Flashback to 45 hours earlier and Dan is on the stand at the trial of Wayne Young. Liz asks Dan if he sees the man that was driving the truck that was used for drug trafficking. Young’s lawyer then cross-examines Dan and asks him what methods he used to find out that Young’s plates were from Waco, Texas and thus giving him the right to pull him over. The whole time Dan keeps asking if he is still under oath. Flashback 3 months earlier, Dan is questioning Young’s business partner, Paco, about details of the truck. Dan tells him that he has a bomb and puts it down his pants. Back in the court room, Dan says that it wasn’t really a bomb and that it was really a transistor radio with the back removed. Young's lawyer moves for dismissal and it is granted. Outside the courtroom, Liz is upset that Jack didn’t control his partner and he tells her that he is hard to control. Dan blew the case and Jack is furious because it was the State’s case and that he filed paperwork for a week on it. He says that they need resources to try to get Young again but that the investigation is over and that means no resources. But Dan bets $3.52 to Jack that he can get Young back in jail...Read the full recap
Dan.: Sounds like we're on a two lane highway in a flat rural area.
Jack.: Dan, this is Texas, alright you just described 10000 square miles.
visual: Dan fires his gun at the wall of the trailer and the bullet ricochets off
Jack.: God, God!, What are you insane! Stop that!
Dan.: I'm trying' to put a hole in the wall so the cell phone wavey thingies can get out.
Jack.: Dan, the phones aren't working because these walls are made with reinforced steel. So if you shoot at 'em, the only thing you're gonna put a hole in, is one of us!
Jack.: That backup's twenty minutes away at least. At the rate we're going, we're gonna be dead in ten, give or take a minute or two
Dan.: That sounds about right. We gotta bring the bad guys to the backup. If they see us run out of here with this brick, they're gonna follow us. We'll meet up with the cavalry in route.
Jack.: That's a good idea Dan, or it would be if we had any mode of transportation at all and we weren't getting shot at.
Dan.: Way ahead of you, take a look.
Jack.: (Glancing out the window) We'll take the red one.
Dan.: That a boy! If you're gonna die, it might as well be in a hot rod!
