In order that Hobbo can find out more about Nelly, his supposed mother, he has Howard eavesdrop on her when she is visiting Pearl.

Soon realising what Howard is up to, the women plant a completely false story about Hobbo's father being a hippy. Hobbo loses no time in making himself look exactly like the description of his father, complete with earrings and beads.

Unfortunately, by the time the women see the fruits of their imagination, Hobbo is being arrested...
