Picture Segment Description
2756a
SCENE 1 Gordon misses his bus to Madison Square Garden to see the New York Knicks game. Just after, Oscar and Grundgetta pull up in the Sloppy Jalopy, also heading to the game (so they can watch the Knicks lose) and ask for directions. Oscar refuses to give Gordon a ride, as that would be cooperating, but eventually relents. Gordon tells them which way to go and Oscar immediately goes the opposite direction (as Grouches always go the wrong way).
