After Pearly Gates and Marla steal the money from a poker game to invest in a worthless mine, Bart unwittingly leads a wanted outlaw to them. Because they no longer have the money, the outlaw hatches a plan for Pearly Gates to turn the outlaw in for a reward with a promise to split the funds after the outlaw's gang break him out. But Bart learns that the outlaw plans to do away with Pearly instead of splitting the reward. In the meantime, Pearly has gambled away his supposed share of the reward with a promise to pay from his share of the reward. To save Pearly while also seeking to recover the funds that he lost, Bart hatches a plan for Pearly to pose as the heir to a large fortune with a promise to pay off Pearly's debts from the inheritance and secure the creditors by making them Pearly's heirs until the fortune arrives. Only one problem, the outlaw thinks that he can inherit all of the fictional fortune by doing away with Pearly. Written by
