It turns out he squandered and gambled away all the lottery money, totaling over $1 million. This resulted in the loss of his house and his wife leaving him over his constant and unwise lavish spending. The insane man, Boyd, is a natural-born, hapless loser who forces Johnny to help him out on a robbery, before showing that his gun is empty. But then Boyd, being the immature, bad luck-prone loser he is, loses all the money gained in the robbery in a poker game despite Johnny's attempts to help him. Meanwhile, Walt goes searching for Johnny when he misses a lunch date with him and Sarah. He ends up trying to save Johnny and Boyd from a hit man hired by a loan shark who Boyd borrowed more money from and naturally squandered it. Written by matt-282 See less
