John Smith learns in order to inherit two million dollars from his wealthy aunt, he divorce his wife Lucille, a former vaudeville performer. In order to qualify for his inheritance, John devises the idea of divorcing his wife and then remarrying her. To establish grounds for the divorce, John registers at a hotel with Fannie, the janitor's wife. Their neighbors in the adjoining room are Britton Hughes and his bride Peggy, who are being pursued by the bride's father. The arrival of Fannie's husband precipitates a panic in the two apartments, during which time, John and Peggy are thrown together. At that moment, Lucille arrives and believes that John is guilty of a real affair. Several complications arise until John's aunt appears and tells her nephew that the will was all a test of his love for Lucille, and when the runaway bride and groom are forgiven, all ends happily.
