  Fifi Flannagan (Marie Mosquini), the French specialist who has had proposals from a prince, a duke, two motormen and a plumber - is working in her salon when she is pestered by the dentist (Eddie Boland) who flirts outrageously with her.  A passing policeman in the corridor breaks up the dentists' short-lived pleasure by taking his place and grabbing her for himself, telling her to give up the romeos so that they can get married.
Cue "the dandy" (Snub Pollard) who is the back-seat rider on a motorbike heading down the main street when the driver crashes outside the dentists building.  Just around the corner a Jewish bootlegger is trying to pass off his liquor, right under the noses of some cops, who give chase to him and his accomplice.  The two men ditch their bag at the foot of Snub and run off and are apprehended by the cops.  It's a clever switcharoo job because they have two bags and present the cops with an empty one, whilst the one they dropped contains the goods.
