When neither of them can get the money, they try to think of a scheme to get it.
Norton turns on the radio and they hear a commercial for a find-the-missing-money contest. The prize is a $1,000 bill.
They study the clues and decide that the money is hidden in an automat across from Grand Central Station. They go there and search everywhere but don't find the money.

: Alice borrows a cookbook from Trixie and in it finds a love letter that Ed once wrote to Trixie. Alice leaves it on the icebox and Ralph later finds it. Ralph thinks that Alice is seeing another man. He and Norton try to figure out who wrote it. Norton thinks the handwriting looks familiar but can't figure out who wrote it.

She asks them to leave the letter with her and that she is going to analyze it further and mail Ralph the results. Ralph doesn't want Alice to know so Norton offers to have it sent to his house and writes down the address. The analyst notices that the handwriting is the same and calls in Ralph in private to tell him that Norton wrote the letter. Ralph doesn't let on to Norton.
