Buster bids goodbye to Virginia and all women, sailing away in his "Cupid." Later, without food or water, he is taken on board "The Love Nest" which has a very mean captain. A crewman who spills coffee on the captain's hand is thrown overboard. So is anyone else who bothers the captain. Written by

Buster's bride leaves him, and he swears off women and takes to the sea on his boat "The Cupid." He is picked up by a whaling boat called "The Love Nest," and joins their expedition. The captain (Joe Roberts) throws ships' boys overboard for spilling coffee on him, and tosses a funerary wreath after them! So Buster has to do his best not to get thrown overboard...
Buster can always make my smile. Lots of fun and laughs to be had here, as usual.
This was the last two-reeler Keaton made before graduating to features with The Three Ages, a much needed satire of Griffith's Intolerance.
