The next morning, Charlie is hungry again and he heads out to Hank Curtis' cabin. Once there, he acts as if he has frozen to death outside Hank's door - and gets a free meal, some coffee, etc. Meanwhile, Big Jim McKay has amnesia due to the blow on his head. He wanders aimlessly into town. Charlie goofs around with Georgia and the girls. Then he invites them to dinner for New Year's Eve. Charlie is very excited but the girl's don't think much of the silly little man. But they think his dance with the Oceana roll is hilarious and so will you. But alas - it's all a dream, as the girls don't show.
