When Harold hears the local bank has been robbed and then discovers a bag of money in the house, he declares that Sharlie has buried her last treasure and decides she must go to a home for senior citizens. But Aunt Millie and Aunt Gertie can't imagine doing such a thing.

After all, Sharlie had nothing to do with the bag of money. How do they know?

They stole it from a casino!
