Storyline

Newt and Marcie are driving through the desert and stop off at a gas station. They are told by Harry, the proprietor, that their car is in need of extensive repairs and suggest that, while he fixes it, they have a meal at his wife's cafe. When the couple are presented with the bill for the repairs and the meal they are shocked at the expense, declaring it "nothin' short of highway robbery". The tables are about to be turned because Newt and his wife were on a journey to do something highly illegal and they have come prepared. Written by don @ minifie-1
