Sie wittern das grosse Geld und scheitern beim Versuch, ihn zu erpressen, grandios an ihrer eigenen Unfähigkeit. Den eitlen und einfältigen Regierungsbeamten Harry Pfarrer plagen dagegen ganz andere Sorgen, denn er muss seinen Verfolgungswahn und sämtliche Affären, unter anderem mit Cox' Frau Katie, geschickt koordinieren. Und dann mischen sich auch noch die Russen ein."
