Reginald Jay (Wallace Reid) has taken to his bed to avoid testifying in a divorce case. He decides that feigning illness isn't such a bad thing when he gets Bebe Daniels as a nurse. The court figures out that he's faking, so they send a doctor to check him out, but with the help of his nurse (she kisses him while his heart is being checked), he proves to be as ill as he claims to be. The battling couple (John Steppling and Winifred Greenwood) eventually resolve their differences, so Jay is able to rise from his sickbed and wed his nurse. This farce was based on a Broadway play by Ethel W. Mumford.
