This farce comedy stars Marie Prevost and Monte Blue. Ernest Todd (Blue) is not doing very well in the insurance business, so his pal, Billy Breese (Creighton Hale), suggests that he use his wife, Mabel (Prevost), to vamp customers, thus luring them in. Mabel obliges by flirting with Henry Bancks (Claude Gillingwater) at a jazz party the couple is attending, but Todd is not happy with the situation. The couple argues after Mabel has gone to a cabaret with Bancks, and they separate. Todd is forced to run the house solo and he fails miserably. When he runs into Mabel at a diner, he begs for her help. She agrees to act as if they have made up so that Todd can entertain Bancks at home. Everything goes wrong, but Bancks still signs up for a big policy and Mabel decides to return to her husband.
