Harold Hall is a medical doctor, who has had so few patients of late that his phone has developed spider webs.  When Mildred and her father enter, Harold is enthusiastic.  Her father explains that his daughter has bouts of sleepwalking, and Harold vows to help, having become quite smitten with the Girl.

Later, Harold visits his friend Roy, who boasts about his home-brewing contraption, and offers Harold a sample.  When all his stashed bottles begin to pop their corks, Roy and Harold "save" the brew by finishing all 44 pints.  They stumble out of the office and, after some antics with the law, go back to their room.  Harold has a humorous encounter with a mirror, a puppy in a hat and, finally, a sleepwalking Mildred.

After the two meet on the building ledge, Mildred wakes up in Harold's bed.  A suddenly sober Harold, determined to make the mistaken arrangement legal, proposes to Mildred.  She accepts, prompting Harold to promise to build them a single-story home.
