Stan and Ollie are determined to attend the big convention in Chicago,
but wives Mae Busch and Dorothy Christie won't hear of it.
So the Boys arrange for Doctor Lucien Littlefield to prescribe
a long sea voyage for them. Stan and Ollie go to the convention instead,
where Charlie Hall serves them and Charley Chase champagne.
Naturally their wives find out, and a most amusing homecoming is arranged for them.

Stan is all set to box Thunder-Clap Callahan;
with Ollie as Stan's second, the big fight doesn't last long.
An insurance man then sells Ollie a policy on Stan.
"If he gets hurt, you get the money," he tells Ollie.
To collect on the policy, Ollie drops a banana peel for Stan to slip on,
but it is Charlie Hall, a pie-delivery man, who takes the fall,
thereby provoking one of the cinema's most famous pie fights.
Not even the luscious Anita Garvin escapes.
