Lum is back on the witness stand, and shares with Abner about his nervousness. It could also be crucial to his charge of bribing Cedric as well.
The trick is try to regain ground in convincing the judge and jury about how honest Lum is. Abner is doubtful, and confused about Lum being a horse trader. With their lawyer on hand, they review a few notes on the case.
The judge calls Lum to the stand, and the questioning goes well enough. Will Lum get his point across about being honest? How will Lum hold up when he is cross examined?
Note: in the cross examination, Lum admits his real name, Columbus.
