About the FBI agentsEdit
The Evans' get a visit from FBI Agents Monroe and Reardon asking about Florida's nephew, Cleatus Jackson. Turns out he is wanted for bank robbery in Atlanta. When Cleatus makes the mistake of trying to use Michael hostage as ransom for a possible getaway by holding him at gunpoint, James is able to trap him by getting the lights to go out by turning on the TV, which had kept knocking out the fuse, retrieving Cleatus gun in the process. Shortly after the agents arrive at the Evans' apartment, whose tires on their car had been stolen!
Forced to try to call for a taxicab, the agents left the apartment to wait for the cab to arrive; not realizing that very few taxi drivers are willing, if not courageous enough, to try to venture into that part of Chicago, even in broad daylight! Finally, after several hours of waiting, they return to the Evans' apartment, just in time to take Cleatus into custody, as presumably, they were able to finally get transportation by calling their FBI headquarters; their now tireless car presumably was towed to FBI Headquarters along with them!
