Monk Malone is crazy about Audrey Vane, so he tells her that he'll get her a mink coat so that she'll stay with him rather than Sam Simmons. When Bob Benton hears that Monk is getting her the coat that night, he realizes that Fabulous Furs is closed so Monk must be planning to steal it. The Black Terror and Tim go to the store to stop the robbery but things don't go as planned.
