He asks her, very casually, to give him her engagement ring so that he can take it to the jeweler and have the loose stone repaired. She aks him if he has been gambling again and if he intends to pawn her ring to pay his debts. Joe laughs off Molly's silliness, -- but of course, that is exactly why he wants it. He needs a thousand dollars by midnight to pay off the mob.
Joe takes the ring to the pawn shop but then becomes spellbound by an odd watch on display there. He decides to buy the watch with the money he got for the ring and find another way to pay off his debt. Not long afterwards, he discovers that his new watch can control time, but can he control the watch?
