Harold distracts the others long enough to have an energetic dance with Bebe. Harold then gets into a extended fight with both Snub and Bebe's father. Eventually all the dance hall patrons become involved in the fighting. The police are summoned. The dance hall manager eventually turns out the lights on the brawlers as the fight shows no signs of subsiding.
