In Denver, Jim visits Moore’s Emporium and asks the woman at the counter, Mrs. Priscilla Goodbody, about a $20 that the emporium deposited at the bank that morning. Priscilla is more interested in the numerological significance of Jim’s name compared to hers. While she talks, a man in a top hat watches the exchange. Jim finally gets Priscilla back on track and says that Mr. Bronzini, a traveling salesman, paid with the $20. She directs Jim to the hotel where he stays and explains that Mrs. Moore sends special orders to Bronzini two to three times a month...

Episode Quotes
(discussing counterfeit money)
Artemus: This stuff is giving you that much of a run for your money, huh?

Artemus: You wouldn't be kidding us, would you, Doc?
Doc Keyno: Why, Mr. Gordon, would I kid the two gentlemen who sent me up?

Artemus: Listen, next time you invite me to lunch, remind me to eat first, will you?
James: Artie, you're a snob. You got to think that a hot dog is a portable steak. It's all in your mind.
Artemus: Yeah, well this one is in the pit of my stomach, I'm afraid. To stay.

James: How well did you know Bronzini?
Erika: I despised him. He had a waxed mustache and eyes like a pair of shiny new marbles. And a lifelong love affair with himself.

James: What does your husband think about all this?
Mrs. Lennox: Abner suffers from a constitutional ailment—he's a ridiculous fool.

Episode Goofs
