Naturally it wins, but the crooks have discovered the friend's plan and a long, frantic chase begins. While hiding out at an auction, Spence accidentally bids on a $10,000 piano. To ensure not getting caught by the Mafia, Spence pays the auctioneer with the winnings from the horse race and the two quickly leave.

Down on their luck, they find a woman who would like to buy the organ, but it just so happens it is the wife of the Mafia boss who is looking for the two. Spence and Dennis must sell the organ and get out of town before anybody notices what is going on.
