This Lubin split-reel comedy sounds exactly like the type of film Oliver Hardy would make more than a dozen years later with Stan Laurel at Hal Roach's studio. Hardy plays Bob White, who has been out partying with his friend, Jack Robbins (Ben Walker). When they get back to Jack's messy home, they discover that his wife (Frances Ne Moyer) is on her way back from a vacation. The guys hire a slavey (Mabel Paige) to clean up the place. At the same time, there's a new tenant in the apartment building, Minister Blake (Ed Lawrence). His wife (Nellie Farron) hasn't seen the new place yet and she gets the address wrong, winding up at Jack's home instead. The slavey, believing that Mrs. Blake is Mrs. Robbins, does everything she can to make her comfortable. When Jack and Bob find her, they desperately try to hide her, but not in time for the appearance of Mrs. Robbins, who thinks her husband has been fooling around. The minister comes to find out what the ruckus is about and discovers his wife. Mrs. Blake is the one who straightens things out.
