Erlich and Big Head discover that Big Head's former business manager has misappropriated $6 million which is needed to pay the million-dollar Alcatraz party bills. Erlich and Big Head threaten legal action via consultation with a district attorney, but Bachmanity's cause is a low priority for the justice department.
