While trying to sell musk-scented car cologne after work, he is recruited as a mule by a cocaine-selling gang that works out of a shoeshine business belonging to Mr. Kicks. Meanwhile, Frank is preoccupied with restaurant cost control, which he has learned about from his books and from a correspondence course. He drives Big Arthur and Shorty crazy trying to figure out exactly how much the ingredients of the gumbo cost. Then he orders the staff to sell the gumbo in a 6 oz. bowl instead of an 8 oz. bowl in order to increase the profit. When Miss Marie protests that "that bowl business is wrong.

Cool's first task is to deliver some cocaine to three people staying in a hotel. He collects his $3,000 and is offered some cocaine by Homer, the 16-year-old gang member who has recruited him, who drives a red 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood
