James Ashley, a lawyer, informs Tony that he has inherited an English country house. Tony, Roger and Jeannie find its 300 years old and falling apart. The electricity is out and they go to bed by the light of candles, but are soon awakened by wailing and clanking chains. When a mirror shatters and Roger is rocked out of bed, Tony thinks its Jeannie. As she protests, a chandelier falls. Jeannie is sure its a ghost and Roger agrees. Then Sir Widgin Willingham arrives, announcing he bought the house from Mr. Ashley a week before. It was then in perfect condition and he asks why they wrecked it. Tony insists he owns it, but Willingham gives him 24 hours to leave. Tony realizes Ashley tried to scare him off and resolves to beat him at his own game.
