Bimbo prepares to rob a train that he has forced to stop. He then sings "The Holdup Rag." A ferocious bearded cowboy emerges, eats the barrel of Bimbo's gun, and, pulling off his beard and costume, reveals himself to in fact be his wife Dangerous Nan McGrew, whom he had abandoned. She drags Bimbo through a pond, and then throws him into the locomotive, and disconnects it from the rest of the train. They then drive off, cover the engineer's cabin and send all their wet clothing out on a line to dry, including Betty's panties and socks.
