As Abner gtakes an order of groceries over the phone, we find that the store is nearly out of supplies. No worries though, with the chemical formula, the gents ought to be rich in just a few more days. Still, Abner is frustrated with the customers, like arguing with a stump on fire.
Cedric has given up his ideas as a silent partner, and is now washing the windows. Not knowing any better, he has been using the formula to wash the windows. How much of the valuable liquid has he wasted?
Lum and Abner pour the formula into little bottles, and imagine how many dollars per ounce it’s worth. Running out of containers, the purple stuff is poured into some old soda bottles. They still don’t know what the formula makes, it could be poison for all they know. Is something wrong with Cedric? Has he drank a whole bottle of the mystery chemical? Uh-oh.
