Synopsis for "Bug Brothers, Part III of V"
Mrs. Perez and her son Danielo are still having a problem with cockroaches, so she contacts Bug-Bee-Gone. At Bug-Bee, the staff holds a brief service for their late exterminator, A.J. Henry is assigned a new partner, the enigmatic Stretch.
Before dealing with Mrs. Perez' problem though, Henry and Stretch work a job at the Regency Manor. The Regency Manor is actually a poorly run mental health facility. Henry encounters an irate nurse and a woman strapped to a table in a padded room who is being assaulted by bugs. Henry brings the matter to the hospital's administrator, Harvey S. Mecklenburg, who tries to bribe the Bug-Bee men to keep it quiet. Furious, Henry leaves. Stretch agrees to handle things, and it appears that he accepts the administrator's bribe.
At Ocran Industries, Laura engages in a lesbian affair with her new employer, Rebecca. They both agree to keep the affair quiet, especially from Laura's boyfriend, Henry.
Later that evening, Harvey S. Mecklenburg leaves work for home. He hears a strange noise coming from the glove compartment. He opens it and a rat springs out. Shocked, the administrator's car veers off the road and smashes through a guard rail. Stretch had planted the rat in the man's car instead of accepting his bribe. Elsewhere, Stretch is alone and flashes a knowing smile.
