Against their better judgement, Lum and Abner have been helping a run away girl from returning to the state home. Tonight, they meet in the dark to help her get away from the police search by disguising her. As right as it would be to send her back, the old gents don’t have the heart to hand Ellie over.
The weak minded old idiots can’t help themselves, and are caught in Ellie’s charming grip… Not to mention her trap. She has been sleeping in the store, and booby trapped it to keep herself safe. Can Lum convince her its the right thing to do in going back?
To disguise Ellie, Abner has an old dress of Lizabeth’s to cut down. Should they leave the tailoring job to Ellie? If the gents ruin that dress, Lizabeth won’t like it one bit. Will Lum do any better at the wardrobe adjustments? If they keep it up, Ellie will have less of a dress, and something approaching a nice bathing suit.
