Long believed lost, the Fatty Arbuckle two-reeler Good Night, Nurse resurfaced in fragmentary form in the late 1970s. Seeking refuge from a torrential storm, Fatty ends up befriending an organ grinder and a street dancer and takes them home with him. His wife arrives, assumes that Fatty has been staging a drunken party, and bundles her husband off to the local sanitarium to take the liquor cure. Here he finds himself at the mercy of overenthusiastic doctor Buster Keaton, who looks and acts more like a butcher, and goofy intern Al St. John. After much hectic running about, Fatty escapes from the doc's clutches, only to get mixed up in the problems of pretty patient Alice Lake.
