Back home, Jerry and Jean discuss Scotty's poor academic performance.
Wade calls and tells Jerry that he and his advisor have looked the real-estate deal over and that they're interested.
Jerry goes to see Shep Proudfoot in the garage and tries to get Carl and Gaear's number from Shep.
He's thinking he can call off the kidnapping thanks to the possible real-estate deal, but Shep doesn't know how to get in touch with them.
Meanwhile, Gaear and Carl are approaching Minneapolis. Carl's annoyed at Gaear for being so quiet.
(Fun fact: Gaear has eighteen lines in the whole film.)
Back in his office, Jerry speaks with a man from GMAC who says he can't read the serial numbers on the form Jerry sent him for cars that Jerry borrowed money for.
He needs to be sure that the cars actually exist. Ha ha.
Jerry says they exist, all right, and he'll send him a new copy. He looks worried.
At the Lundegaard home, Jean's watching TV. Lots of TV watching in this movie.
Suddenly, Carl and Gaear break into the house and chase her. She manages to bite Gaear on the hand as he grabs her.
Carl and Gaear can't find her, but it turns out she's hiding in the shower.
As she tries to run away, she ends up crashing down the stairs covered in a shower curtain and knocks herself unconscious.
At Wade's office, he and his advisor Stan Grossman meet with Jerry about the real estate deal. To Jerry's dismay, it turns out that they want to give him a "finder's fee" instead of loaning him money to get in on the deal itself.
Wade explains why it's crazy to loan Jerry all that money.
Jerry goes back to his car and has a minor tantrum
He drives home to discover that his wife's been kidnapped, just as he planned.
The house is empty, some windows are broken, and there's a shower curtain on the floor.
