Girl is rich, she's beautiful, she's smart, she's all that. Boy is poor, he's not too bright, and he's hopelessly in love with her. Enter a pompous sergeant who immediately proposes to the girl, and a snake oil salesman who promises the girl's love in one day if the boy buys and takes his special elixir.

What could possibly go right?
