The Stooges try to sue a hotel after Curly "accidently" slip on a bar of soap in the hotel. They soon change their tune when they discover that the hotel is run by an old lady that is being evicted by her nasty landlord. The Stooges take things into their own hands and fix the place up, along with beating up the landlord.moreless

The songs played in the background at the nightclub include That Week in Paris, Ben's Business in C, and Rockin' the Town.
In the opening scene, when the Stooges fly out of the doorway and onto the sidewalk, dummies are obviously used in place of the Stooges.
When Curly slips on the soap left on the sidewalk, it is obviously a stunt double and not Curly.
As the scene dissolves into the Stooges inside the hotel, we hear Moe saying "...start slippin', we start suin'" but we don't hear the beginning of his line.
As Curly tossed the soap on the floor, Moe was putting his hat on, then in the next shot, the hat is in his hand again!
When the Stooges each begin to lay a carpet on the floor and roll one end of the carpet towards the wall, the other end of each carpet is supposed to roll back to the boys and hit them on their feet, but Larry's carpet stops rolling mid-way. It's fixed in the next shot.
When Larry lies across all three of the carpets, after a while, all three of the carpets become one!
When Curly is pulling all those handkerchiefs out of his pocket, we see Moe holding a rubber snake, but we never saw where he got it from.
Balbo: A tomato?
Curly: Yeah, a cowardly tomato. One that hits you and runs.
Moe: Good evening, friends. I would call you ladies and gentlemen but you know what you are.
Larry: Would it be possible for us to...
Moe: I don't think it would be possible.
Moe: Are you hurt?
Curly: Yeah, but I don't care!
Curly: Is that your hat?
Mr. Scroggins: Yes.
Curly: Why don't you have your head simonized?
Mr. Scroggins: And who are you?
Moe: Who is he? Why, he's one of the biggest steel men in the country. He'd steal anything. I mean, his steel is known from coast to coast. Willie Steel!
Curly: And how!
Curly: Don't you dare hit me in the head! You know I'm abnormal!
Curly: (to the bar of soap) Now you work with me, and I'll see that you're put in the tub and nobody uses you.
(Waldo Twitchell examines the poster for the Stooges' show.)
Waldo: This looks screwy enough to be good!
Customer: Excuse me, do you have paté de foie gras?
Larry: (obviously confused) I'll see if the band can play it.
Moe: Now get out there and mingle with the guests.
Moe: Mingle or I'll mangle!
The lyrics to She Was Bred in Old Kentucky, but She's Just a Crumb Up Here were written by Moe Howard.
This episode's working title was "Poor But Dishonest".
Actor Harold Lloyd sued Columbia Pictures for the use of the magician's coat scene, which was taken almost exactly from Lloyd's movie Movie Crazy (1932). Clyde Bruckman had been a writer on both films.
Running time: 17 minutes 24 seconds
Curly: ...and Major Bowes said I had talent!
Curly is making a reference to Edward Bowes, who hosted a popular radio program for entertainers called Major Bowes' Amateur Hour.
The title of this short parodies the expression "Local Boys Makes Good," a generic small-town newspaper headline about a local citizen who has achieved a major accomplishment.
Many of the jokes that the Stooges deliver as waiters (e.g. pate de fois gras), are lifted line-for-line from a previous Stooges film Beer and Pretzels (1933).
