Harold and Edith are betrothed, but, as the course of true love never runs smooth, they quarrel. Edith leaves him at the gate in a huff, but "faint heart ne'er won fair lady," so he follows her into the house to find the doctor attending the maid, who, it transpires, is ill of a contagious disease. The doctor has telephoned the case to the Health Department so the house is quarantined at once and the peevish lovers are destined to stay under the same roof until the ban is raised. This elates Harold, but the worst is yet to come. They both must be vaccinated. Edith's mother plans to help things along by having Harold pretend illness to arouse Edith's sympathy. The scheme is working finely when Edith discovers the hoax. Still, the ice is broken and the lovers' quarrel is quashed.
