Randall is offered by a dodgy Irish friend to take part in a money salvaging operation whereby £500,000 of old money is to be burnt, but is replaced with newspaper pieces. Not informing the police neither accepting any part in it, Randall watches from a nearby street and is caught by the police and imprisoned. Using his lady friend lawyer she tracks down his dodgy friend at his London club finding the real culprits are his lady dancers who attempt to fly to France in escape. However leaving it to the ghost Marty, he is able to manipulate their navigational equipment and get them to return to an airfield in Surrey where they are captured, freeing Randall.


In this episode Jeff's morality is questioned as he considers accepting the money to be incinerated.
