Charlie Osgood has been robbing his partner Eddie Turtin for years. When Eddie finds out, he threatens to go to the police unless Charlie returns what he stole. Determined not to comply, Charlie and his girlfriend Danielle decide to fake Charlie's suicide and then leave the country. Charlie gives Eddie hints of suicide and then throws an explosive-laden dummy over a bridge. After blowing up the dummy in the water, Eddie is convinced Charlie is dead. Eddie gives the eulogy at Charlie's memorial service as Charlie heads to the office to pick up his stolen cash. Charlie grabs the money and he and Danielle celebrate with drinks. Charlie passes out after the drink and awakens to find Eddie and Danielle. Charlie realizes that he has been set up. Eddie planned to take the money and blame the theft on his dead partner. Eddie and Danielle get rid of Charlie for good by pushing him off a pier and blowing him up in the water. (TV.com)
