Home Alone 3

Synopsis: Four high-tech industrial spies, Beaupre, Alice, Jernigan and Unger, steal a top-secret microchip, and, to fool customs, hide it in a remote-control toy car. Through a baggage mix-up at the airport, grumpy old Mrs.Hess gets the toy and gives it to her neighbor, 8-year-old Alex. Spies want to get the toy back before their clients get angry and decide to burglarize every house at Alex's street to find the chip. But Alex is prepared for their visit...

Ten million dollars

for the missile chip.

Not a plan...

...but the chip itself.

Why the big price?

My clients have requested it.

I honor my clients' requests.

Sounds like your clients...

...want to build a missile

that can't be detected by radar.

I don't ask questions, Mr. Beaupre.

But whoever possesses this chip

could dominate the entire region.

- Good night, George.

- Good night, Mr. Cooper.

- He's clean.

- Here.

That's what you asked for.

Air Force NSB-100, C series.

If that goes in a missile,

air defenses can't stop it.

Look, I got a plane to catch.

Where's my money?


Hide it in the toy car.

We'll slip it right past

airport security.

Let's go.

Welcome to San Francisco

International Airport.

Do not leave your bags unattended.

Please remove your jewelry.

Let's go.

Ma'am, you have to wait.

Thank you.

Next, please.

Oh, my God.

Move. Move!

Young man!

The Dallas, Miami, New York

and Denver lounges. Nothing.

Bars, restaurants, club lounge, clean.

When I was in the john,

I didn't see anything in there.

It has to be on a plane.

We are going to Chicago.

In the winter?

I packed tropical.

Welcome to Chicago,

where it's 29 degrees outside.

Welcome to Chicago.


Here you go, sir.

Mr. Beaupre!

Mr. Unger, Mr. Jernigan.

Excuse me.

- Out of my way.

- Move.

- Did you check any bags, ma'am?

- No. Floor it!

She's leaving.

That's him.

Excuse me, pop.

Can I ask you something?


You had a fare from the airport

around 1620 hours, January 8.

Senior citizen, female, Caucasian.

- What?

- About 4:
30 today. Old broad.

- Oh, yeah.

- You got an address on that?

North Devon Park, Washington Street.

Describe the house, please.

Big, old...

... Tudor-like place.

- Details.

- Christmas lights, wreath on the door.

Christmas tree by the driveway,

and the driveway...

...was the only one

on the block not shoveled.

I'm done, Mrs. Hess.

I'm exhausted and sweaty...

...but you can't see

because I'm covered up.

You were to deal

with the snow promptly.

- Yes, but...

- "Buts" are for ashtrays.

I don't care for excuses. We had

an understanding and you broke it.

- Your word is worthless.

- Sorry. That'll be no charge.

So you can tell the neighbors

I stiffed you on a job?

Is this a loaf of the famous

San Francisco sourdough bread?

This won't make

a very tasty sandwich, will it?

Because of some silly,

inconsiderate boob who took my bag...

...I left my bread in San Francisco!

Pardon me, Mrs. Hess,

but I think I'm almost, maybe...

...possibly, probably

gonna be late for my dinner.

Consider this your payment.

I have no use for it.

Thank you.

And have your mother teach you...

...that it is rude to scratch

yourself in front of a lady.

Good night, Alex.


What a grouch.

They're all old...

...most of them are Tudor...

...all have wreaths

and Christmas trees...

...and the snow's all shoveled.

There are 14 houses.

The toy car must be in one of them.

We'll have to search them all.

- We'll come back when it's light.

- We're gonna work in daylight?

It's the suburbs, Mr. Unger.

Nobody's home during the day.

There you go, Speedy.

Charlie, I told you last year,

and I'm telling you now...

...I can't work weekends.

- Why not?

- I've got three kids and a husband.

That's Mary Lou. She has no life.

It means nothing to her

to work weekends, but I can't.

My house is half-renovated.

My kids have activities.

They need to see us doing more

than running to the car.

I can't explain over the phone why

we're so excited about this product.

I'll be in Cleveland on Wednesday.
