A couple of plumbers, William Wilson (Eddie Lyons) and Joseph Blynn (Lee Moran), believe they have gotten their chance at the big time when they are sent to fix a burst pipe at the home of a millionaire named Hoban (George B. Williams). Hoban offers to make them president and secretary of a stock company and they eagerly sign the contract. They're intoxicated by the good life, leaving their sweethearts in favor of a pair of society women. But the whole company is a scam created by the millionaire and it isn't long before the plumber's fancy clothes are ripped off them -- literally -- and they return to their blue collar existence. This wasn't one of Lyons and Moran's better farces and Lyons particularly was extremely subdued.
