Meanwhile, Ace Crosby (Mitchell Harris), an angry Arizona gambler wants to shoot Wattles for representing the gamblers wife in a previous divorce case. Swift suggests that Wattles dress as a woman in order to avoid being found by the gambler. That evening, Wattles and Swift do the same thing that they do every evening: turn their office into a casino. Swift arrives at the casino pretending to be Aggie Brunos love interest. To add to the confusion, Waddles (dressed as a woman) shows up with Joe Bruno, pretending to be his love interest.
