After opening his restaurant, and petitioning to have the busline stop in Pine Ridge, Lum is in anticipation as he waits for the first bus crowd. Abner tells about a possible rift between Luke Spears, and Lum over getting the bus traffic. The new business is all due to Doc Ben Withers, and connections with a friend of his. Will Cedric be able to keep up with washing the dishes fast enough to keep up with the rush?
Grandpap arrives, and is assigned his battle station. As Lum over sees the final moments, and demands equipment checks, Doc Ben Withers talks about people he has known, and the interesting things they’ve done.

Abner shares his exploits as waiter, and dealing with the hungry crowd. What kind of profits did they make? What did Lum forget in his preparations?
