Sam leaps into Cam Wilson, a pimply teenager who is regularly bullied by his peers for his geeky appearance and the fact he drives the slowest car on the boulevard. Cam's older sister, Cheryl (Romy Windsor), is engaged to a seemingly decent guy named Bob Thompson, whom Sam discovers, is actually an abusive alcoholic. Haunted by memories of his own sister's brief marriage to a similarily abusive man, Sam is determined to stop the wedding.
As Al tells Sam about his mission as Cam, he explains that, though Cheryl and Bob appear to be a happy couple, Bob is in fact a mean-spirited drunk, who regularly beats Cheryl. After they got married, Bob never lived up to his promise of joining the Peace Corps, and Cheryl never got to see the world like she wanted to.
After beating Bob in a drag race between their tow cars which he challanged Bob to, Cam's sister Cheryl, who already had been assulted by her soon to he uusband Bob outside of the Wilson home, learns without a shadow of a doubt, about Bob's true character, or lack thereof, as he tries to get his sidekicks, the Impalas, to run over her brother Cam; when Cheryl tells him that their upcoming wedding is off and their relationship is over, he tries to strike her again, but Cam, who saw the events that happened outside of their home just days earlier, and who had confronted Bob when it happened, stops him and puches him out, as he saves his sister from making a big mistake in marrying Bob.
