After the firebombing of Steve's house, the police department assigns around-the-clock protection of their own to Daisy. The first, Officer Schmidt, begins his day of guarding by accompanying Daisy on her morning jog. After an exhausting run, he then follows the family to the amusement park for the day. He expresses relief when Steve and Daisy opt to skip a roller coaster first thing in the morning. When they ride one just before returning home, Officer Schmidt throws up. Moreover, on the way home, he fails to catch the car that attempts to run Steve off the highway.
