H.I. McDonnough.

"We figured there was too much happiness here for just the two of us, so we figured the next logical step was to have us a critter."

Herbert "H.I." McDonnough was an Arizona criminal married to policewoman, Ed McDonnough. Not long after getting married, the two found out that Ed was infertile. They also found out that they could not adopt, due to H.I.'s criminal record. They soon devised a plan to kidnap one of five babies that belonged to Nathan Arizona.

Behind the scenes[]

H.I. was played by Nicolas Cage in Raising Arizona.
