It does not fit in the suitcase or under the bed but he manages to stuff it in a closet. Poor Jack is now attacked by ghosts and taken to a car. Caught in the underworld trap Jack becomes the victim of another mysterious car crash... Is it not Miss Mooneys car that finally hits him? Damn that lady!
