Slimer finished reading a fairy tale book in sleeping quarters and heard Chilly coming. He raced over the a grandfather clock and pulled out his Stay Puft Marshmallow Man piggy bank but there was only a button inside. Slimer flew through the sofa but there was no money to be found. Winston arrived downstairs and Slimer quickly flew through Winston's jumpsuit. Winston stopped Slimer and told him he was out of change. Slimer flew outside and tried to get some sympathy from Chilly. She assured him she would be back in the afternoon, plenty of time for him to find 50 cents. Rudy overheard the conversation and urged Slimer to his 'office,' a phone booth.

In need of money to buy ice cream, Slimer took a job as a messenger for Rudy's Messenger Service. Rudy lent a bicycle, clothes, and his sunglasses to Slimer. Professor Dweeb, seeing an opportunity to catch Slimer, called Rudy's service and procured his services for a package pick up. Slimer rode over to the address with Dweeb secretly tailing him. Slimer missed the elevator so he went outside and flew through the window. He spotted the payment and package on a desk. Slimer struggled with the package. It was tied to a cement slab confined to the ceiling. Slimer managed to yank the package free but was dismayed when the slab fell onto the desk. He quickly fixed the desk and taped the slab to the ceiling then left. Professor Dweeb and Elizabeth stormed the empty room. Dweeb looked up to see the slab about to fall on him.

Slimer returned to Rudy and received another call, to the same place. Dweeb tied a string to a doorknob when Elizabeth warned him Slimer was near. Dweeb tossed some garbage out of a can and they hid inside. Slimer noticed the mess and threw the trash back into the can, not noticing Dweeb and Elizabeth inside. He flew through the front door window, took the package and money, and flew out the window. Dweeb burst in and set off his own trap. An anvil dropped on a jelly doughnut, the jelly landed on a scale, a Statue of Liberty figurine set off a rocket, the rocket knocked a bowling ball down a plank, the ball fell down a bucket, the bucket got some gears working, a string was pulled and a Motorized Desk was activated. It chased after Dweeb and Elizabeth then grabbed them with a giant hand. It spit them out in a small metal cage.

Slimer returned and Rudy declared the phone calls stopped so they were out of business. Slimer heard Chilly and asked for his wages. Rudy brought out $1.50 but started deducting expenses for the bicycle, on-job training, and rental of shades. Slimer was left with 10 cents. He sadly answered the phone for Rudy. It turned out Slimer won the daily telephone jackpot and a ton of coins emptied out of the phone. Slimer rode along with Chilly and happily ate his ice cream bars.


Chilly Cooper: [singing] Ice cream, ice cream.
