Synopsis by Janiss Garza

Prohibition has recently ended, and alcoholic beverages are very much in demand in this Three Stooges short. A druggist is furious because his liquor supplier can't come through with the goods. While he is arguing over the phone, the Stooges show up -- they're carpenters who are supposed to install a door. Since they can't even tell right from left, the results are predictably disastrous. However, the druggist has no choice but to leave them in charge of the store while he dashes off to solve his liquor dilemma. Meanwhile, the supplier has sent one of his men to the store to work damage control. He asks the Stooges, who are working behind the counter, for some strong refreshment, and the boys concoct something explosively potent (in a Stooge's film, that means literally). The man is impressed by the stuff, and convinces the Stooges to bring their "scotch" to his boss' dinner party -- dressed as Scotchmen. The boys show up properly kilted, and proceed to create havoc. They silence the performance of an opera singer by flinging grapes and a banana into his mouth, and their table manners at dinner are just as juvenile. They finally bring out a barrel of the strong stuff -- resulting in an explosion that leaves the dining room waist high in suds.
