However, after she finds out about all the Wwod on his hands, she gives him an ultimatum: her or the money. So Eddie must choose between a life of booze, money and prostitutes or the love of a beautiful girl who can’t feel anything from the waist down so he gets a lot of backdoor access, so to speak.
