Everything goes OK until the final drop off, when the federal agents -- who think Jerry is on their side, though he doesn't know what they are talking about -- and the loan sharks think Jerry has double-crossed them, catching Jerry in their crossfire. Fortunately, Renfrew and the other boys get Jerry out of this mess.
