Ollie is having money troubles. First, there's an insistent creditor. Then, there's the mix-up with Stan as to who owes what where.

To top off his really bad day, an unexpected trip to the hospital proves that blood really is THICKER THAN WATER...
A very funny little film. Highlight: the `I gave it to him' routine. That's diminutive Daphne Pollard as Mrs. Hardy, James Finlayson as the furious furniture store owner & Charlie Hall as the bank teller.
