* KarmaHoudini: While Paul is arrested and [[GroinAttack effectively vasectomized]], Beverly not only gets away scot-free but gets a brand-new, even richer sugar daddy. Justified, since Paul abandoned her while trying to escape and was the one who actually came up with the plans and performed sabotage on the company. The only "evil" things Beverly did was marry a man for his money and lie about already being married (and try to sell off the company, but hey that's just business). Of course that leaves a problem of felony aiding and abetting, but [[MST3KMantra it's just a movie]].
