Synopsis
While Tracy and Sam are searching, Oodles goes on a crash diet to lose enough weight as to be unrecognizable to the police. Losing so much weight also makes him angry and hungry. He makes the mistake of ordering a lot of food from a restaurant belonging to one of his crime associates, not knowing that Tracy has a hidden two-way wrist radio concealed in the restaurant office. As the restaurant delivers the food, Tracy and Sam prepare to close in.
