The men rent a room close to the station from elderly and eccentric landlady Mrs Wilberforce and pose as a string quintet to avoid raising their hostess' suspicions. As the date of the robbery draws near, Professor Marcus finesses his plan but he fails to take into account the biggest obstacle: Mrs Wilberforce.
