While on holiday in Paris, Ollie falls in love with the beautiful daughter of an innkeeper. When he discovers that she is married, he is heartbroken to the point of committing suicide. Just as he about to leap into a river (with Stan as well), an officer from the Foreign Legion convinces the duo to enlist. They do so, and end up wreaking havoc in training camp. After being arrested for desertion, they manage to escape by stealing an airplane, which ultimately crashes. Sadly, Ollie dies in the crash but is reincarnated as a horse, which pleases Stan.
