Meanwhile, Lester's nephew John is trying to bring to fruition his romance with the Colonel's daughter, Pat. He is severely distracted by a visit from the Molloys, who, along with their old pal Chimp Twist, have a devious money-making scheme that depends on the greed of Carmody. Carmody is more than happy to comply...
