Wimpy stops at nothing to satisfy his appetite for hamburgers at Rough House's diner. Wimpy tries to mooch hamburger from Olive, Popeye, Geezil and Rough House, but they all turn him down. Only having a dime with him, he orders an oyster and discovers a pearl in it. There is a mad scramble as everyone tries to buy the pearl from Wimpy, but he accepts Rough House's bid of all the hamburgers that he can eat. Rough House rushes to Geezil's nearby pawnshop to sell the pearl. He flips over when Geezil tells him that he sold Wimpy a handful of the same pearls for 10 cents that morning.
