Upon arrival, Jesse makes himelf at home in Monica's apartment, without asking, then disrupts her college exam. Although she at first rebuffs him, his relentlessness and raw sexual charisma eventually gets to her, and she allows herself to be seduced.
When Valerie reveals that she may be pregnant, and subsequently discovers that her new beau is the subject of a massive manhunt, Jesse robs a stolen-car dealer and the two make one, last dash for freedom in Mexico.
