Dan Backslide: Dear, rich Dora Standpipe! How I love her... father's money!
[Dan Backslide notices a old car parked in front of the pool hall]
Dan Backslide: A runabout. I'll steal it! No one will ever know!
Tom: Unhand her, Dan Backslide! Unhand her, Dan Backslide! Unhand her, Dan Backslide!... Hey, we're getting in a rut... Stand up and fight, you coward, bully, cad, and thief!
Narrator: Out and away the most popular fellows at Pimento U. are the three Dover Boys: Tom, the fun-loving member of the trio; Dick, a serious lad of 18 summers, plus a winter in Florida - as related in "The Dover Boys in the Everglades"; and Larry, the youngest of the three jerks... er, brothers.
Narrator: Poor Dora. Will no one save her from this predicament? Will no one come to her assistance? But hold on. What's this? It looks like an alert young scout, and that's just what it is. He'll not fail her, I'll venture.
Dan Backslide: Confound those Dover boys! Oh, how I hate them! I hate Tom, I hate Dick, and I hate Larry! They drive me to drink!
[Dan zips over the bar and rapidly downs the drinks that the bartender serves him, with the bartender taking one drink for himself]
