[after the Three Stooges fall out of bed]
Aren't you guys asleep yet?
Certainly, I dreamed we saw a swimmin' pool, so we dove in.
Well, dive back in your berth, or I'll make you dive off this train!

Poor Bud Jamison. As "Johnson," he keeps banging his head on the upper berth in his Pullman train every time his obnoxious and loud boss screams his name. He's a go-fer for spoiled "celebrity" "Paul Pain" (James C. Morton), who is victimized by the Three Stooges throughout this story. Mainly, the gag involves a little monkey stealing Pain's hairpiece.
Most of the gags - at least the good ones - involve the same shtick worked over numerous times, such as Johnson banging his head, the hairpiece stolen, the boys trying to get into an upper Pullman berth and then always falling out, the boys not having a clue how to eat a delicacy - in this case crab meat (which they call "a turtle!," etc. My favorite part was Curly thinking he got lucky with this beautiful sleeping babe in one berth.
The mayhem on the train is only in the last eight minutes of this 20-minute short feature. The first part sets up the train and shows the down-and-out Stooges living in poverty and then preparing to go to the train station en route to a "gig" someone got for them. The early jokes are not that much except for Curly cooking a "filet a sole and heel," meaning cooking his boot in the oven.
