After recognizing Columbus Day, Bud and Lou discuss their new investments. Is there a good way to double Lou’s money? Somehow, jokes about Gypsy Rose Lee, the famous vaudeville stripper, is mentioned as an alternate to gold mines. Lou is confused over what gold ore is, as well as smelting it. Valuable, or just bad grammar? Other offenses come from striking the mother vein.
Freddie Rich plays, Straighten Up and Fly Right. It’s off to Gold Tooth, Nevada, and the Little Pauper mine. Jokes include Boot Hill, a lifeguard, mirages, or was that a garage? Margarine? An Indian selling blankets turns out to be Mr Kitzel. Taking break, Lou sips some cactus juice, and the guys stay in Kitzel’s hotel.
Connie Haines sings, It Could Happen To You. Finally in Gold Tooth, the guys look for directions in the Red Dog Salloon. Alvea Alman is a two gun toting balloon girl. She takes them down the mine shaft, and leaves Bud and Lou to explore. After fun with echoes, picks and crowbars are used for picking and crowing. But is that rumbling sound rain? Or a cave in! Is this the end? Will the old friends settle accounts with each other? Sebastian is on hand to end the nightmare.
