On their ride those giant vultures try to take the girls, and while Di is able to rescue Etta the others are taken to an unknown location. Diana resolves to find them by setting herself up to be taken and lassoing one of the birds to control it, but the bird grabs the lasso and to her surprise gives her an order in English.

Synopsis for "Scribbly"

Scribbly taunts the Kids that they ate Mexican Jumping Beans for their chili dinner, claiming tomorrow they will become rubber-like and bounce out of bed, though the Kids are alack to believe it and Ma Hunkel gives him one of Uncle Gus’ nightshirts to change into for the night. Dinky punches Scribbly off-panel while Ma cooks breakfast telling them to keep down the noise. Scribbly tries to wallop his brother with a pillow and Sisty stops him by jumping off a bureau and landing on the back of Scribbly’s head, smashing her mother’s bed in the process. Scribbly is naturally blamed about this and tries to escape through the window, but trips and falls on his ass, somehow rockets into the air and then falls on top of Ma as she leans out to see if he’s okay. He rockets back into the air again and lands on top of Ma’s head again, but luckily not a third time as Scribbly bounces all around town and Dinky realizes they did eat Mexican Jumping Beans and Dinky declares they must call a doctor. They call a surly doctor who says Mexican Jumping Beanitis is not a real thing… until he sees Scribbly destroying property outside with his bouncing. Ma awakens minutes later to find the police, the fire department and three ambulance crews are trying to catch him. Ma grows impatient, saying she used normal kidney beans in her chili and fashions a lariat out of clothesline, seizing Scribbly by the throat and sitting on him. The Doctor tries to run in, but Ma shows that there was just a bed-spring attached to Scribbly from her broken bed causing all this and spanks Scribbly in public, then turns on her kids, realizing they were the cause of all this. Everyone laughs at them.

Synopsis for Etta Candy and her Holliday Girls: "Hard Candy's Ranch"

Etta Candy’s Father, Hard Candy, picks up some money from a recent cattle drive in cash due to the bank being closed. Banker Tough Lucky offers they hold the money for him until the bank is open, but Hard says his safe back at the Bar-L Ranch is uncrackable, much to the interest of known bandit Slick Slippery, listening to them from the window. Slick jumps a fence with his horse to get to the Bar-L as quick as possible to try to hack it. Meanwhile, Etta offers she and the Holliday Girls can guard him on the way back to the ranch, but Hard refuses, since he’s no sissy. Etta immediately wanders off to the Kewpies’ Candy Shoppe to get some more candy. Therein she finds today’s special is on the Cupid’s Love Drops, which purport to make a woman irresistible and filled with ambrosia. Etta asks if she looks any different to the other Holliday Girls, who say she just looks fatter because she’s increased her candy eating lately. Etta says they’re just jealous of her allure and that she’ll get a man yet! They all soon arrive at the Ranch and the Girls complain there are no men to flirt with there. However, one of the Girls quickly finds Slick and they drag him out to judge an impromptu talent show to show who’s got “the most zam!” Slick notices Etta and assumes her being fat is the same as her being stupid and decides that she wins so he can try to ditch more easily. Etta thinks the candies must be working, since Slick offers they should go for a ride together. The other Girls wonder if the Cupid Love Drops really do work! A minute later, Hard rides out and tells the Girls that Slick got around the problem of cracking his safe by just putting a gun in his face and they ride out to track him down. Slick tries to take Etta hostage, but she shoves her Love Drops in his face and she jokes that she can’t capture a man with her charm, but “if he’s a crook I never miss!”

Synopsis for Green Lantern: "The Fantastic Fate of the Fraternity Felons"

Doiby Dickles finds a strange robbery going on, and after belting several of the thieves, realizes their guns are only water pistols and it was only an initiation prank for new fraternity members. New members of Doiby's own old fraternity, Eta Pi, in fact. Alan Scott lends him a suit for a fancy reunion dinner, but as soon as Doiby leaves Scott reads a headline about a fraternity initiation prank being used as a cover for a robbery.

Meanwhile, at the dinner the members bring up an old promise they made to share all their possessions. They turn to Doiby and ask him to contribute by telling him to share with them Green Lantern's secret identity. Before Doiby's implicit honesty can ruin his friend's crimefighting career, Green Lantern bursts in and quickly sends the other frat brothers packing. Doiby's immensely indignant that Green Lantern would hurt his friends, but Green Lantern points some holes in their presentation, like the wrong Greek letters on their pennant. They run outside but are ambushed by the fake frat brothers, fed into a garbage truck and seemingly crushed, but Green Lantern's powers have secretly saved them.

The two heroes are dumped into an incinerator and almost burnt alive waiting until the crooks are out of sight to start pursuit. GL and Doiby brawl with the fake fraternity inside a department store and Green Lantern wins the day by refracting his beam into every diamond in the jewelry department, blinding the crooks. With the criminal element seen to, Green Lantern administers a harsh spanking to Doiby for refusing to accept the fake frat's deception. To add insult to injury, the real Eta Pi fraternity expels Doiby for associating with criminals.
