Storyline

Bingles falls asleep in a restaurant and dreams delightfully. Waiters and barbers refuse to accept tips. The conductor of a streetcar that passes him instead of stopping, has the car reversed and brought back to where he stands. In the car he finds the ladies all standing and the men all sitting, a lady rising on his entrance to offer him her seat. At home Bingles receives a still greater surprise; he dreams that his wife has smoking jacket and warm slippers for him, that dinner is all ready and that she lights his cigar. Just at this point the waiter in the restaurant wakes him and tells him it is closing time, quickly bringing him back to earth by the reminder of the customary tip. Bingles realizes sorrowfully that he is still in the same old world after all. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
