Buster Keaton reworked material from his 1932 MGM feature The Passionate Plumber for this two-reeler, the last in his series for Columbia. He plays a plumber who finds a wealthy heiress (Elsie Ames) hiding in a water heater. She's taken refuge to evade an amorous Frenchman (Eddie Laughton) who wants to marry her for her money, and whose kisses make her resistance wither. When her suitor discovers Keaton working on the shower in her bathroom, he challenges the interloper to a duel. Their battle of honor ends ignominiously, however, when a hunter's shotgun volleys scare off the combatants. The heiress proclaims Keaton her savior and learns to her delight that his kisses are even more potent than the Frenchman's!
