Dallas persists, hoping he can melt Fritz's resistance and find out why he doesn't seem to want any friends. Before he gets a chance, however, a mysterious stranger attempts to kidnap Fritz. Fritz escapes, but will he be so lucky again? And why won't the kidnapper reveal what he wants? Even the police are stumped. That's when Dallas and Jimmy decide to investigate. Come along as they track the kidnapper, try to keep Fritz from danger, and solve the mystery that even surprises the police!
