The Three Stooges are inept electricians in this comic short. That's no surprise since their last jobs were as peanut brittle breakers. After everyone, including the boss, gets shocked at least once, the boys are finally fired. This trying experience inspires them to take a vacation and they wind up at Mallard's Rest Home. But Dr. Mallard (Kenneth MacDonald, a frequent Stooges' villain) is a quack and only wants to take money from his rich patients. He assigns two nurses to the Stooges, which sends them into paroxysms of ecstasy until the nurses enter -- they're men. The next morning, in the gym, the Stooges promptly knock their male nurses silly with some weights, and then discover that the place is a sham and have to escape Mallard and his henchmen. Curly cures a wealthy man's bad foot when he collides with his wheelchair, and the grateful man gives him a thousand-dollar reward. When Curly suggests using the money to take a nice, long rest, his pals bean him.
