Those errands include a ride on the trolley with a live turkey in tow. Next, his in-laws arrive for a visit, and Harold takes them for a catastrophic ride in his new car. Finally, Harold chloroforms his ill-tempered mother-in-law (Josephine Crowell), and, when she begins to sleep walk, Harold thinks she is haunting him.
