Brian is thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase his invention and improve on its design, but he soon finds himself caught between his loyalty to Ralph and his growing affection for Casey.

As Brian works to perfect C.H.O.M.P.S., the burglars become aware of the new security system and begin plotting a heist to steal the valuable secrets they believe are hidden inside Ralph's home.
