Jed tells Cousin Pearl that he’ll receive 25 to 100 of “some new kind of dollar.” Pearl, thinking Jed has been “slickered”, asks what kind of dollar he’s talking about. “Million dollars,” Granny, Jed’s mother-in-law, replies. “Jed, you’re a millionaire,” Pearl says. “Yeah, that’s what that Brewster fella said.” Pearl convinces Jed to move to Beverly Hills, California
