Brewster overhears Morgan talking about something going to the scrap yard, and then hears Pete saying how worn out he is. Brewster jumps to the conclusion that it's Pete who's going to the scrap yard! He and the other trainees determine to help Pete by doing all of his work for him. A farce ensues as the trainees rush around doing Pete's work as well as their own. Pete is completely unaware of this - but he thinks it's a little spooky that his loads keep disappearing! Poor Brewster has bitten off more than he can chew, and ends up in a terrible mess. Old Puffer Pete, feisty as ever and nowhere near ready for the scrap yard, saves the day.
