To stop his new corrupt “stepmom” Beverly and “stepbrother” Paul from selling the company to rival Zalinsky, Richard and Tommy embark on a quest to secure the sales the company needs. However, Paul sabotages them at every turn.
The pair try to gain access to the Zalinsky board room but are denied. When Michelle arrives with Paul and Beverly’s police records, Tommy comes up with a plan. He pretends to be a suicide bomber (using road flares) and attracts a live television news crew.
The unlikely trio of heroes forces their way into the boardroom. Callahan workers watch the drama unfold on TV. The workers watch on TV as Zalinsky signs Tommy’s purchase order for 500,000 brake pads. Zalinsky scoffs at them, claiming the purchase order is moot because he will soon own Callahan Auto.
However, the police records confirm that Beverly and Paul are legally married, which makes her marriage to Big Tom null and void. Controlling shares transfer to Tommy, who does not wish to sell the company, and calls in Zalinksy’s purchase order, saving the company from financial ruin.
