Synopsis
The Brush fills a huge bag with stolen money, highjacks a laundry truck, and makes a break for it. Tracy chases him by helicopter and uses a hook to topple the truck, but by then the bag has rolled off. Farm folk use it for bedding until Auntie discovers the money, and hides the evidence so as to keep the cash to herself, calling it her egg money.
