Based on a letter from his oil geologist brother Timothy Gillis, Herbert believes that Timothy will be giving him some lucrative oil stocks in turn for taking care of Dunky. As such, Herbert believes he has to be especially nice to Dunky for as long as Dunky will be staying with them, as difficult as it will be due to Dunky's teen-aged hijinx. It is even more difficult after Dunky, with Maynard's assistance, accidentally locks Herbert in the store's freezer. After the fact, Dunky and Maynard believe they've killed Herbert, and as such decide to go into hiding. The result is the police believe Herbert, who managed to escape from the freezer, and Dobie, based on Dunky's disappearance and other circumstantial evidence, have in turn murdered Dunky. Only a cold spell may clear up all these misunderstandings. Written by
