Abner is back after his bout of laryngitis, but you can tell his voice is a little froggy sounding. Squire Skimp departs, and Lum talks to Abner about picking up business for the new restaurant by stopping passing busses. How can they get the driver to stop, rather than speeding through Pine Ridge?
Doc Withers enters while Lum checks on a city ordinance. Lum wants to enforce the town speed limit to get the bus to slow down in hopes of having it stop. What about trying psychology on the bus president to get his support on the matter. Doc rambles on about residents of Mt Ivy, and thinks of somebody who might help Lum.
As Lum waits for his return call from the bus president in Little Rock, Doc continues to ramble about his friends in Mt Ivy. Through a wierd accident, Lum is tied up when his phone call comes in, so Doc Withers chats with the bus line executive. Will the personal catching up with the executive come out in Lum’s favor?
