At Madame Zenobia's illegal nightclub, when Steve Jackson and Wardell Franklin get robbed of their wallets containing a winning lottery ticket, they set out to recover it.
The roles of Steve and Wardell were written for Redd Foxx and Richard Pryor, but the studio felt they were not big box-office draws. Pryor ended up with a cameo.
You see what I saw?
Wardell Franklin: Yes, I saw what you saw, and don't be worrying about nothin' 'cause the dude mess with me, I'm gonna knock him out.
The climactic chase at the end takes place on windy, rocky, mountainous roads. There is no area like that anywhere near Chicago, where the film is set.
