It seems the man's wife wants to adopt some refugees to impress her society friends. Moe is Johnny, Curly is Frankie and Larry is Mabel.

The Butler's name is listed as "Botters", however, while watching this episode it sounds like his name is "Bupkis", which would be more in line with Stooges humor. "Bupkis", for those of you unfamiliar with the term, is a Yiddish word that means nothing of value, worthless, or something along those lines. I'm not sure if the official script lists him as Botters, and they ad-libbed, but, regardless, Bupkis is a way funnier name. Listen closely to the opening scene, and see what you think. The wife speaks very quickly, so you really have to listen. The Stooges always used funny names for their butlers. One was called Sappington, and several others had similar names. I'd love to hear back from others, as to what they heard. I love how "Bupkis" rolls his eyes at literally every comment the wife makes, and hurls verbal barbs at her, yet sounds polite, and the lady of the house is oblivious to the fact that she is being insulted. Just another "Stooges" jabs at the complete phoniness and ridiculousness of "High Society". The regular guy wins again in this short.Overall, this is one of the best Stooges shorts out there. Enjoy!
