Abner is having second thoughts as the meeting with the contractor draws near. Should they entrust the entire amount of money over the the builder? Lum tries to impress the venerable old friend and school chum of Squire Skimp. As the business meeting begins, certain behavior from Mr Dobbs ought to alert Lum that this deal may be a little shady.
To impress Mr Dobbs, Lum smokes cigars, and forces Abner and Mousey to do the same. How will Lum do at big time wheeling and ealing in the smoke filled room? A mistake by the queasy Abner might have saved the day for them, stay tuned to see what happens next.
PS: Mr Gregory WW Dobbs is played by the returning guest actor, Franklin Graham. The whole cigar smoking to impress others also was featured in a Vic and Sade episode. See Vic and Sade – Mr Chinbunny Wants To Smoke Cigars (Rush). 400602. An episode that took place about 2 years prior to this one. When the young school principal, Mr Chinbunny wanted to hire Vic to teach him how to smoke. It’s not the only cross reference between Vic and Sade with Lum and Abner.
