Johnson tries to bargain with them. He goes behind a curtain and pulls out a shoebox full o' cash; he offers it to them, if they'll just let him free, then throws some cash at them. Instead, though, he pulls a gun from another shoebox and shoots it at them. Sam's finally able to switch on the lighter, and Johnson is sucked back into the void. Ben hobbles over to the curtain, and there are dozens of boxes full of cash behind it. Moral dilemma!
The Stooges head to the DMV to deposit the vessel. Yay! Gladys is back! I missed that old bat. However, instead of collecting the vessel as usual, everyone's favorite ribald registrar inspects it, imprints an envelope with a "REJECTED" stamp, and hands it back to Sam. She gives him some paperwork to appeal the rejection. She adds that typical response time is six to eight weeks, then puts a "CLOSED" sign in front of her window and puts on that schadenfreude-y smile reserved for bureaucrats.
Back at 667, JBL and Ben ogle the millions in cash. With the money's help, JBL has already envisioned himself in various cinematic scenarios, from Indecent Exposure to Top Gun. Sam reminds them that the money is not theirs to keep, but they claim that they risked their lives for it. In vain protest, JBL says that, if he can't have the six million bucks, he's takin' Sam's alarm clock. Way to stick it to him!
Later, Sam and Beelzebabe walk and talk about their families. Sam asks if she ever talks to her dad. She says she never met him, but suspects he may be a member of Huey Lewis's backup band, since her mom used to be their groupie. Sam cracks a joke, but she abruptly changes the subject and says her unknown paternity has made her feel like a freak since she was a kid. Sam consoles her, then spots a pet store where they can replace Walter. They pick a fish and head into the store, but their top choice has ominously floated to the top of the tank before they even get inside.
The next day at The Bench, WiseGuy shows up. Sam stops him before he can bug Sam about the soul. WiseGuy informs Sam the vessel was only half full, then shows him a security tape. Before Sam reaped Johnson, he and Hwang partnered back up, so Sam must reap Hwang now, too. As luck would have it, Hwang is the dangerous one. WiseGuy also prods Sam to "stop being a weenie and spend some of the cash." Sam stands the moral high ground, but WiseGuy tells him it was a "victimless crime." As the tape continues, they see Hwang walk through a wall, overpower a security guard, and shoot him with his own gun. "So much for a victimless crime," snarks WiseGuy.
