Cannery Row Chapter 9 Summary

  • Mack goes over to Doc's laboratory to bring up his plan about the frogs. Doc is wary when Mack comes in, since he knows that Mack is usually trying to pull one over on him.
  • Doc really needs frogs, though, so he agrees to pay for the gas Mack and the boys need to go to the Carmel Valley to get them. But he says no to loaning them his car.
  • So Mack asks to borrow Lee Chong's beater. Problem is, the car doesn't run. Lee Chong agrees that Mack and the boys can borrow the car if they fix it first.
