Moe, Larry, and Curly are carpenters in a drugstore, then a liquor salesman stops and asks them for a drink, the stooges mix some all kinds of chemicals in it, they bring it to the man. After the man drinks it he thinks it's scotch then he makes a deal with them. Later in the short they go into a party dressing in a Scotland uniform, then they reck the house.
In the beginning of the film, Moe falls off a table and cracks a few ribs and had to go to the hospital and the production ceased briefly.
The painful footage was reworked in the 1943 short Dizzy Detectives.
This is the first short to feature the official theme song "Listen to the Mockingbird" it was used until the beginning of the 1939 season.
