Dick Huddleston talks with Abner about the strange hotel guests, and their suspicions that Trixie isn’t as innocent as Lum believes she is. Cedric enters and we’re reminded that Lum has taken on the job as bellhop so he can earn those big tips from the gangster guests. The job swapping has put Abner in the position as Manager, and Cedric as Assistant Manager.
Lum enters, but doesn’t seem as willing as Abner was to run around to serve the guests. Dick tries to point out how Lum cheated them out of the tips from the bellhop job, but will Abner and Cedric have regrets over it?
Dick makes plans with Abner to write a job description for the bellhop job to make Lum wish he never took it. Starting early in the morning, taking extra duties and errands for the hotel, and coming up with even more rules. Has Lum learned his lesson?
