- Yeah

l'll meet you on the beach

with Jenny's ticket.

- Good afternoon, gentlemen.

- Howdy.

l didn't expect to find

luxuries of this nature out here.

- Just come in?

- Yeah, yesterday.

Boy, it sure is hot!

Say, didn't l see you

about six months ago in Seattle?


- Great town, Seattle.

- Yeah.

l hated to leave,

but the gold fever got me packin'.

lt's a big fever.

Hey, that's all right!

My name's Frank Canon.

- Sam McCord.

- That's a real dinger. ''Big fever''!

Forgot my soap. Be right back.

- Why, you thievin' little...

- Wait a minute! l wasn't doing anything!

Don't lie to me, you robber! l saw ya!

- What are you doin'? l didn't do anything!

- You thieving little skunk!

- That rat was going through your clothes.

- What's goin' on?

- l caught a thief going through his clothes.

- l'm sorry.

The town's filling up with riffraff.

l can't watch them all.

Cool down, mister. He'd have come up

empty. My money's in this bag.

l'm sorry, but... dishonesty

always makes me see red.

No harm done. l'll buy you a drink.

No, no. l always insist on

buying the first one.

The Canons have been like that as long

as l can remember. My father used to...

- You won't believe this!

- What's the joke?

While l was looking out for you, that bum

robbed me! Took everything but my pants!

- Uh, $5, please.

- You strapped, mister?

lt's embarrassing.

lt's nothing serious. l'll get the money

from the States in a few days.

Won't hurt to lose a few pounds dieting.

l forgot! Frankie's silver lining.

l almost forgot it. l'll be able to

get the money on that little bauble.

You can get the money right here.

For trying to save my poke,

l'll give you a coupla hundred.

- The diamond's worth $5,000 easy.

- Well, how much do you need?

There might be some delay
