Gophers undermine the foundation of Scrooge's Money Bin, and he has the coins exchanged for bills to reduce the bin's weight.

When the plot is discovered, Scrooge and Donald disguise themselves as lettuce farmers and drive out of town in a truck filled with lettuce that conceals Scrooge's paper money.
