Lisa Peluso, wearing a stunning blue evening gown, is crying by herself at a party when a waiter approaches her. The waiter hands her a handkerchief. She takes it without thinking and wipes her eyes with it. The waiter then presses the handkerchief (which was soaked in chloroform) against her mouth. She struggles and then passes out. The second scene occurs in a van. She's chloroformed again by her kidnappers.
