Despite their best efforts to kill Mrs. Munson (Irma P. Hall), the five Ladykillers only succeed in killing each other. It ends on the bridge with Lump and Professor Dorr (Ryan Hurst and Tom Hanks). Lump accidentally shoots himself with the gun given to him by Professor Dorr, and while contemplating his solitude with the job at hand, Dorr is fatally struck on the head by a falling gargoyle. Mrs. Munson tells the sheriff (George Wallace) about the money, but he believes that she is crazy, and encourages her to give it all to charity. She walks out of the police station with a smile on her face as her cat runs to the bridge to drop off the finger of Garth Pancake (J.K. Simmons) as the last remnant of the Ladykillers, who for some reason killed only one lady in the entire film, Mountain Girl (Diane Delano).
