Storyline

Rob, Buddy and Sally have been asked to do a benefit show at Granville State Prison by its entertainment director, convict Lyle Delp. Rob and Laura and Lyle are old friends who first met when Laura was pregnant with Ritchie. At that time, Rob took Laura to the doctor's office when she started experiencing what may have been pre-labor pains. Rob and Laura were alone in the elevator at the medical building with Lyle, who promptly held them up. The stick up went from bad to worse (for all of them) when the elevator got stuck. Their collective goal then became how to get out of the elevator safely and quickly, especially with a pregnant Laura becoming more pregnant with every second. This process gave them much time really to get to know each other, sort of. Written by Huggo
