Gordon misses his bus to Madison Square Garden to see the New York Knicks game. Just after, OSCAR & GRUNDGETTA pull up in the SLOPPY JALOPY, also heading to the game (so they can watch the Knicks lose) & ask for directions. OSCAR refuses to give Gordon a ride, as that would be cooperating, but eventually relents.
