While Muggsy implores Alfalfa to use her extra ticket to go to the movies with her, Alfalfa patiently waits for Darla outside the theater, unaware that Darla is going to go to the movies with Butch, with Butch using Alfalfa's ticket. A dejected Alfalfa ends up going into the movie and sitting with Muggsy, right next to Darla and Butch. Alfalfa can't help but daydream during the movie, inserting himself and his friends into the dream, which mirrors the action in the western on screen: Alfalfa as the good guy cowboy, Butch as the bad guy criminal, and Darla as the ingénue who wants to marry the cowboy but may be forced to marry the bad guy under force. Alfalfa's dream may show who the hero of the story really is.
