Bill Lawrence wins a slew of prizes on a radio quiz program. His happiness is short-lived when he discovers he'll have to sell the prizes in order to pay the taxes on them.
Pete Spooner's suggested answer to the radio show's "tortoise and hare" qualifying question is "Middleground and Your Host". This is a reference to two famous racehorses of the day. Your Host was favored to win the 1950 Kentucky Derby but faded badly and lost to Middleground.
"They might detatch your salary."
William: "Then I'll quit my job and live on soup."
Lawyer: "They might detach this house."
William: "Then I'll burn down the house!"
At one point after Bill wins the jackpot, the radio show host refers to him as "Mr. William Glenville of Lawrence, Indiana" instead of "Mr. William Lawrence of Glenville, Indiana".
