When the rest of the prospective brides hear about the inheritance, they show up at the ceremony and a free for all ensues.

You get the dough

provided you're married.

So... Married?

No. No, fellas. I'm gonna faint.

- Or...

- Or what?

If you get married within 48 hours

of the reading of the will.

What time was that?

00 the night before last.

You just got seven hours

to get yourself a bride!

It can't be done.

No woman is interested in me.

Maybe not, pal.

But if you look real

hard, you might find one

that's interested in

a half a million bucks!

Maybe you've got something there.

You're darn right he

has. You know any girls?

I've got a lot of numbers,

but I haven't had much

luck with them lately.

Well, you can't get killed for trying.

Where's the phone?

There's a booth down the hall...

Well, what are we waiting for? Come on!

Down the hall!

Hello? Is this Ginger Gray?

It is? Well, this is

your little snookums.

I'm about to do you a big favor.

Will you marry me?

Hey! Any luck?

I've got one phone number

and one nickel left.

Well, start using it.

You clumsy ox, you. Where'd that go?

It went down here someplace.

Let's find it.

I think it went over that side.

It didn't go over there.

Get off of me here.

- Here, take this receiver.

- I got it, I got it.

All right, just take it...

- Get this out of my hair here.

- All right.

Easy, easy, easy. Get off your foot.

Now wait a minute. Can

you dial from there?

- No. Can you?

- Yeah.

If I come around like this way

and get up in this one...

How's that?

Well, it don't feel as

good as when I did this.

Wait, wait, wait. Take it easy.

Now look...

We ain't getting no place fast.

Let's get at this thing the right way!

Let me get this off!

How you doing?

Get your hand out of my face.

That ain't my hand. That's your hand.

All right. You asked for it.


- We've got to get out of this.

- Alright.
