Summary
A young woman looks longingly at a trombone in a music store window. The salesman trys to sell her one, but she refers him to her father. While the father's secretary throws him out, a fire extinguisher salesman slips in through the back door. He gains access to her father by flashing membership pins to the secretaries/bouncers. The initiation for admission to the father's organization is to burn down a house: the father's own. They set fire to the house, but the salesman puts it out with his merchandise. However, the house is gutted and the father chases him off.
