He met a girl named Fifi [Raqiya Ibrahim] at the Groppi shop whose charm and beauty attracted him. When he went to Dr. Sami [Seraj Munir] to borrow five pounds he told him about this remarkable woman. Later he met her when visiting his friend Dr. Sami and they sang the famous duet Hakim Oyoun. He discovered Fifi was Dr. Sami's fiancee and avoided her after that. When Mohsen apologized to Sami, he bought him an expensive engagement ring that cost more than what his mother had left him, at a time when he needed money badly to prevent repossession of the furniture in his home, but he resigned himself to the repossession. Fifi learned of the repossession and pawned the ring to prevent it. Sami learned about what happened and confirmed that his betrothed was indeed the Groppi girl. He left her to go her own way out of generosity to Mohsen, who ended up winning her.
