Synopsis:
An unassuming criminal compensating for something goes by the name of the "Big Guy" and surrounds himself with large furniture, tall men, Great Danes, and he even has a tall girlfriend who works as a bouncer. Cap gets himself brought to him by kissing the girl and then he and Bucky escape by getting the dog drunk on catnip. Bucky figures out that his next crime will be stealing silver from an atom smasher from a comment the Big Guy made about "small things". Chased to the top of the building, the Big Guy gets away from Cap by using his hat as a parachute and riding the dog to a waiting car driven by his girlfriend. She is daydreaming of her kiss with Cap.
