“Maybe we better humor him.” “I’ll marry him, if there’s enough dough in it.”

Short Take

Moe, Larry and Curly are carpenters installing a door at Mr. Jones’ drugstore. Jones leaves the boys in charge while he tries to settle a liquor delivery problem. The liquor salesman comes in and asks The Stooges to make him a “pick me up,” which they mix up themselves in the back in an old boot. The Stooges’ concoction knocks his hat off, and the salesman is convinced that the new drink will bring a fortune. He then tries to pass The Stooges off as the Scottish whiskey makers McSniff, McSnuff and McSnort at a party in his boss’s home.
