At some unknown point, Mary's husband Bobby, was kidnapped and held for ransom.

In 1994, Mary followed the kidnappers orders and left a briefcase full of a cash at an airport in Rhode Island before flying back to Aspen. However, Lloyd Christmas, who had fallen in love with her, got his hands on the briefcase and tried to return it to her.

Later, Lloyd and Harry Dunne arrived in Aspen, with the briefcase - but they had spent all the money. The kidnapper discovered the briefcase was empty, but then were apprehended by Harry and a group of FBI agents and Mary was reunited with her husband.
