She convinces old friend Dino, a gangster who owns various clubs, to stock the perfume. Dino decides to take over the counterfeiting ring for himself, but they are all arrested by the FBI. Lonny and Pat are sent to prison for 5 years but hope to start life fresh with a clean slate when they get out.
