Brief shot of men having their shoes shined in a store.
C/U of sign advertising Pappy's Biscuits and O'Daniel Hamburgers as the special today. Another sign in a drugstore (?) asks "Have you ever had a Hillbilly Phosphate?". Brief shots of O'Daniel holding hands with a pretty girl who carries a basket of flowers.
