Mrs. Louisa Wilberforce:
Professor, I must give you back your ten shillings. You see, the cabber wouldn't take any money, because he said he was going into some other business.
When all the money falls out of Lawson's cello case it scatters all over Mrs. Wilberforce's doorstep. By the time the criminals come back to try and cover up the story, all the money has disappeared.
During the opening credits, roses are shown, to highlight the fact that William Rose wrote the screenplay.
