In "Double Identity," a man steals a fortune from his employer and then does a particularly bad job of getting away.
As the episode opens, George Lockman and his co-worker are going through the routine of distributing pay envelopes from the cashier's window. He knows every move of their routine, but this time, he makes one change. When his co-worker is distracted, Lockman leaves the company safe open. When his coworker leaves, Lockman steals $50,000 in cash.
Lockman then takes the bus to the airport. His getaway to Paris seems to go smoothly at first, but then one thing after another keeps Lockman from getting...anywhere.
