While Janus is behind bars, Raffles is off to fend for himself. He comes across the sisters and the children on an outing, the sisters who take him back to the convent since he has bonded with loner child Jamie. They feel that Raffles can help Jamie get out of his shell, and the Reverend Mother agrees, temporarily lifting the no animal policy at the convent. But Raffles shows his true colors to the sisters by snatching wallet after purse after briefcase. In their delivery of the purses back to their rightful owners, the sisters have a close encounter of the uncomfortable kind with a police officer, this encounter giving Raffles the opportunity to transfer the purses from the sisters' station wagon into the officer's patrol car.

Sisters Bertille and Jacqueline have taken the convent's first grade class on a rewards trip to the beach for a weenie roast. A gypsy named Janus Zayukovsky's (Neil Burstyn) dog Raffles snatches a woman's purse and he chases it wishing to no longer steal. The situation still leaves him jailed. Meanwhile, Raffles runs to the beach and plays with the kids. When he appears lost, Sister Bertrille appeases the kids' wish to bring him back to the convent. Reverend Mother Placido protests, but gives in when she sees its only temporary and how it has helped one of the introverted children, Jamie (Mark Dymally). Raffles begins to swipe other people's wallets and purses. They place an ad in the newspaper for him to be located by his owner. He causes more mischief leading to the reverend mother insisting Raffles must be turned over to the pound if the owner doesn't contact them in two days.
