A craving for a night with the boys brings grief to the home of the Newlyweds. Jay is at the club and the hour is late. Mrs. Newlywed paces the floor and halts when a cuckoo clock announces the hour of one. She gives up hope and prepares to retire. When the game breaks up, Jay wanders home and makes a stealthy entrance. The cuckoo calls twice. Jay promptly cuckoos some more with the hope of fooling his wife on the hour of his return. She is far from fooled and makes life miserable for him. The next morning at breakfast a messenger brings a telegram that calls for Mrs. Newlywed's immediate departure for her mother's, who is ill. She leaves for the train after making Jay promise not to go to the club during her absence. Jay determines to bring the club to him. He calls the boys and invites them to a game at his house. While he is talking to them he sees men post a quarantine notice on the house next door. Soon after the game starts Jay sees an old couple approaching the house, and recognizes his wife's uncle and aunt. In desperation he steals the fever sign from the neighbor's house and posts it on his own door. The ruse works and the couple depart in all speed. Trouble develops when the boys attempt to leave the house after the game. Every effort is foiled by the health officers, until Jay calls the club, and his pals promise to assume the role of undertakers and carry them from the house in coffins. Ethel, in the meantime, gives up the journey to her mother and returns in time to upset all their plans. The police arrest Jay and the boys and they are sentenced to thirty days in jail for the disturbance they have caused. Ethel forgives Jay when she sees him behind the bars.

David Kelly, known as "Cricket," is bell hop at one of the large metropolitan hotels. Selden is the head clerk and the bane of "Cricket's" life. Mary McFee, the cigar counter girl, is the idol of the bell hop's heart. Jack Hewlitt, a drummer, arrives at the hotel, and arouses the ire of "Cricket" because of his attentions to Mary. General Grouch, an old veteran, arrives and angrily orders the bell boys away when they try to take his luggage, but "Cricket" outwits him and takes charge of his baggage by force. In the days that pass "Cricket" does many kind services for the old man. He notes the growing interest between Mary and Jack with dismay and resolves to break off their interest in each other. The General's nephew is staying at the hotel and is quite a "rounder." The old man finally takes sick. He refuses to have a doctor and gets worse. "Cricket" sees the old man is in bad shape and one day he stops a doctor who is calling, and asks him what he charges for a visit. The medical man tells him two dollars, and after a search, "Cricket" digs up the amount in nickels and dimes and pays him for a visit to the old grouch. The old man is touched by the boy's thoughtfulness for him. The doctor tells the General that his condition is serious and orders him sent to a hospital. Before leaving, however, he writes out a legal paper, which the doctor witnesses, and presents it to "Cricket." "Cricket" learns that Mary and Jack are going out to supper and resolves to follow them. Jack sends him to his room for a box, containing a present for Mary, and the boy opens the box and substitutes a photo of Jack's wife and child for the present, then ties the box up. "Cricket" learns that Grouch has died, but does not think of the paper he has. Jack has taken Mary to a cheap restaurant, where he tries to caress her. She repulses him, and thinking to placate her he opens the box supposed to contain a present for her. When Mary sees the photo she rushes out to "Cricket," who takes her home. While "Cricket" is waiting on his bench he takes out the paper. It is the will of old Grouch giving him his entire estate, which is worth millions. He goes to Mary, who has taken a great liking to him since he has rescued her, and asks her to marry him. At first she agrees but then tells him that she cannot marry a millionaire. "Cricket" pleads with her. In his pleading he drops his cigarette and the will catches fire. Mary then agrees to marry him. He hurries to the phone and getting Bliss on the line tells him to hold the job of assistant clerk for him, he having previously resigned his job. Bliss agrees, and Mary will soon be Mrs. "Cricket."
