Soon after Joy gave birth to her first child, in 2000, Earl, Randy, Joy, and the baby broke into this huge house. They were in the process of stealing kitchen gadgets, food, etc... But the family returned home a lot sooner than expected. The gang dropped the loot and each went their own way to get out of the house.

Unfortunately, Earl ended up trapped under a young boy's bed, Alvie. The father tucks in Alvie. Alvie asks his dad to keep the light on to keep the boogeyman away. Alvie's dad assures him there is no such thing and turns out the light.

Unsure, Alvie checks under his bed and finds Earl. They both scream and Earl runs out of the house.

Present day - Earl and Randy are back at Alvie's house to made amends. Alvie says Earl can scratch him off the list if Earl is his slave all day and does everything he says.

The day progresses and Earl thinks his job is done. However, he notices that Alvie sleeps with his light on because of his fear of the dark.
