This is a bug in the original game, and has been fixed by an official patch by Sierra. You can download the patch (LSL6PAT) here:

You need to copy all the MSG, HEP and SCR files in the directory where you installed your game.

Closing as won't fix, as there is an official patch for this bug

There is no bug here, the reporter didn't copy the PATCHES directory from their CD. They were bound to have many problems.

The spigot bug is in lo-res versions, it was fixed in hi-res. There's not even a patch for the lo-res version, Sierra just offers a saved game from after the scene. The fix is contained in the PATCHES directory on the hi-res CD, along with many other patch files.

You can tell that the reporter is missing PATCHES because ScummVM won't load the attached saved game. Script 0 is the wrong size. There's patch files for script 0 in PATCHES but the saved game is for the unpatched size in RESOURCE.000 which should never be used.

I'll add the lo-res spigot bug to the queue =)
