Synopsis
Empty Williams and his gang highjack a truck loaded with diapers, thinking it had furs. They kill Karl the Carwash King in a dispute while trying to unload the diapers. Empty turns to Bonnie, who cuts the hair on his misshapen head, and tries to make a getaway. They capture Sam and hide him in an old slot machine slated for destruction. Tracy saves him in the nick of time.
