A plainclothes cop moves in to protect Jack whose life is in danger after witnessing an armed robbery at the flower shop.
While Jack waits for Janet at the flower shop, the place is held up. They report the crime to the police, and Jack has his picture taken and put in the paper as a witness.
The police are able to talk Jack into saying that he can identify the robber's face and plant it in the newspaper. A police officer, who Janet falls for, is sent to protect the trio's safety. When Mr. Furley arrives, they notice the "officer" has the same tattoo, a tattoo with an anchor the letters "USN" above it, as did the robber. After they knock him out and tie him up, the real robber, who was supposed to be one of Terri's dates, arrives. Cindy saves the day by opening the door and knocking the robber out.
