Pat and Molly Malloy, once famed vaudeville and Broadway performers, arrive to play the small town of Hamilton, Conn. with a troupe of dancers, singers, a trained dog and an educated seal. Harry Clark, the clerk at the rundown Swanzey Hotel, insults Pat and the latter uses the $4000, that he and Molly have been saving for years to buy a retirement farm, to buy the hotel so he can fire Harry. Local skinflint, J.A. Higgins wants the hotel as he knows the state has intentions to buy it for a museum, but Pat won't sell. Higgins puts an ad in "Variety" and a swarm of jobless vaudevillians, headed by Marvello descend to take advantage of the "free board" mentioned in the ad, and soon turn it into a three-ring circus. The only paying customer, Iradius P. Oglethorpe, informs Pat that the old chairs stored in the cellar are priceless antiques. Based on that, Pat refuses Higgins' second-and-higher offer, but soon learns that Oglethorpe is the village idiot and the chairs are worthless. Their last hope is a benefit show, staged by Higgins' nephew, Chuck Bradford, who loves Jeanne Carlyle of the Malloy troupe. But the free-loading vaudeville boarders skip town.

Blaine is transferred to a little wayside station, far removed from all other habitation, and before going persuades Nellie to marry him. At first, love for her husband absorbs Nellie's whole thought, but gradually the intense loneliness at the deserted post begins to pall on her and she longs for companionship and her old home. She meets Stephen Carter, Jr., a wealthy idler, traveling about with his father. During his enforced stop at the little station, Carter amuses himself by flirting with Nellie and finds her an eager listener to his stories of life in the big city.

Tom, who is perfectly contented, cannot understand her attitude, and resents her longing for other companionship. He upbraids her for complaining and hot words are spoken.

Heartbroken, Nellie goes back to her uncle's house, Stephen again meets her and tries to induce her to go to the city with him. While he is pleading with her, John, who has somewhat repented his hasty action, enters, his suspicions, previously aroused by a note Stephen had written to Nellie, are confirmed when he sees the two together.

She struggles, but without success. One day she is knocked over by an auto driven by Flynn, who she had known at the Wayside station. Through Flynn, Stephen is informed of her whereabouts and, unknown to her, he secures a position for her and gradually gets her into his debt.

Stephen, feeling that he has waited long enough, reveals the truth of her position to Nellie and demands payment for his favors. While she struggles against his advances, the door is opened and John rushes in. Stephen is thrown out, and husband and wife realize that love is the only thing in the world.
