Summary: 

The boy who drove the rented car to the airfield offers Captain Warren a quarter to drive it back to town. The boy is scared to return it and asks Captain Warren to come with him, as Mr. Harris, who owns the car, never received a down payment from Ginsfarb. Ginsfarb told Mr. Harris he would pay him double the requested down payment if they used the car in the show, but after the aborted "death drop" he instructed the boy to take the car back to town and to tell him they never used it.
