A stranded theatrical troupe manages to get back home through the leading man finding a glass eye. An idea strikes him. He buys a bag of walnuts and the comedian later also buys a bag. The leading man then goes to the fruit dealer, offering him $100 for the return of his glass eye, and saying he will return later in view of his finding it. The comedian enters, stating he found a glass eye in the bag of walnuts he bought. The fruit seller pays him $50 for it. He is still waiting for the $100 and the troupe is back in New York.
