The episode opens with a woman standing in Hedy Lamarr's shoes. Hedley walks by, correcting her pronunciation as he heads into the theater. In the lobby, some cows are milling around behind theater ropes. Hedley rushes to the counter to buy some Raisinets. As he makes his way down the aisle, he accidentally tries to sit on someone before finding an empty seat. The movie is already playing on the screen. Hedley looks up and sees Bart arriving on horseback outside the theater. He spits out a mouthful of Raisinets and makes for the exit. He leaves the theater, only to be confronted by Bart. Bart says, "Ok, Lamarr, go for your gun!" Hedley professes to being unarmed. Bart drops his gun and suggests they settle it man-to-man. That's when Hedley remembers he is armed and tries to shoot Sheriff Bart. Bart dives forward, grabs his gun in mid-roll, takes aim and shoots Hedley in the crotch.
