As Lum and Abner sit in jail, they discuss grandpap’s mix up that landed them there. Cedric returns with the worthless horse that Lum traded from the Gypsies. So far, their secret is safe about the inheritance, and why they can’t tell anybody about Abner needing to get rid of all his stuff.
Lizabeth is sure that Abner is guilty of something, and refuses to bring him any food until she finds out what it is. Lum dictates a confession. What kind of crime will she believe?
Constable Ben Withers enters with an offer of food, then reads Abner’s confession of bank robbery. And he was on the verge of releasing them since there was no real charge.
