Healy and the Stooges are thrown out of the Happy Hour Theatre because of Ted's woman chasing. He promises to straighten out and give up women, but his promise doesn't last very long. The boys take jobs as waiters at a posh nightclub restaurant, but spend more time enjoying the floor show than tending to the patrons.

Many of the Stooges' waiter scenes were reworked for the Monogram feature film SWING PARADE OF 1946 (1946), and their Columbia short LOCO BOY MAKES GOOD (1942).

The singing bartenders were The Three Ambassadors (Jack Smith, Martin Sperzel, Al Teeter), vocalists for the Gus Arnheim Orchestra at the Cocoanut Grove, in Hollywood's Ambassador Hotel. Jack Smith (middle bartender) went on to a successful radio singing career, and host of television's YOU ASKED FOR IT in the late 1950s; also a character actor, he played himself in a two-part episode of HAPPY DAYS in 1975. Martin Sperzel (bartender on viewers' left) became a member of The Sportsmen Quartet, costars of radio's and television's THE JACK BENNY PROGRAM from the mid-1940s to the late 1950s. Al Teeter went on to a long career in the Disney Studio's musical department.
