- "During the San Castellanta street festival, much of the town realizes their wallets have been pickpocketed. After the state investigator puts the wrong man in jail, Chief Wiggum sets out to clear his name, catch the real criminal and show he's still up for police work."
The Simpson family goes to the San Castellaneta Festival, dedicated to the Italian culture, while Fat Tony meets with his uncle. Major Quimby introduces Jason Momoa who tells the story of Ignatius Castellaneta.
At the gathering of money for Jesus, the people at the festival were robbed. At the Police Station, Lenora Carter takes the case in hand, diminishing Chief Wiggum's job. As bait for the robber, Homer is taken, due to this big butt being the biggest in town, setting a wallet with a tracking device in his pocket.
After Homer is pickpocketed in the underground, the police follows the device to a storage full of wallets, when a door opens and Fat Tony and his uncle get framed being the culprit, while Wiggum is depressed cause of being put aside in the case.
At the Springfield Penitentiary, after Sideshow Bob escapes from it and gets hit by a rakes truck, Fat Tony prays to God to help him out of it, while Wiggum on the other side prays to him to help him in his own situation, and Homer prays him to bring back plastic straws.
Louie brings in his lawyer, but upon hearing he's innocent he leaves, while Wiggum watches an interview with Tony saying he'll never commit the pickpocket crime, so he goes to his jail and says to Tony he'll get him out if he convinces him he's innocent.
Tony shows him what he does every day at the time of the crime, singing in his room alone. Tony agrees to put on a wire and goes to Luigi's to find out who framed him, and Frankie the Squealer reveals to him it was Johnny Tightlips who betrayed him and become the Springfield Mafia boss.
Homer enters the room by mistake when police intervenes on the scene and is hit by a bullet in the butt, and Wiggum sucks it out. At the Springfield General Hospital, Homer wakes up safe, while at the station Wiggum regains his confidence. At the end Fat Tony, Homer and Wiggum share a toast on the successful operation at Giuseppe's.
The mob lawyer's rate clock went through changes between the promotional picture being made and the episode. In the promotional picture, the clock has both the time and charge. However, in the episode, it only has the "charges" on, not the time.
