Buster goes away to the city to prove to his girl's father he can succeed. He writes her of his various jobs which she glorifies in her imagination. She sees a surgeon, he is a vet's assistant; she sees him cleaning up on Wall Street, he's really a janitor.

I've come to ask for your daughter's hand in marriage.

The Girls Father: Splendid. I'll lend you my revolver.
