Instead of using the toolbox's contents to commit crime, Rudy ends up giving a teddy bear from it to a dying Allied pilot, a participant in the bombing raid that had just confined his family to an air raid shelter for hours. The Teddy Bear is meant to give comfort to a person or a child in suffering. Rudy's tool box is meant to be first aid for the heart.
