Mousey has signed on to fight, but with Squire as his manager. Lum laments over his loss, then Abner gets confused at a figure of speech. He can’t understand Lum refering to the business a man is in as his game.
Squire enters, and Abner doesn’t quite grasp the idea of giving him the cold shoulder. Squire wants to sign over Mousey’s contract. Lum ought to smell a rat, but he goes through with the deal. A phone call reveals Squire’s real motivation.
