Storyline

Billy Quirk starts out in the morning for his office. Billy has important papers in his grip and important matters on his mind. The trouble starts when Billy takes a car and in his hurry, when he reaches his destination, he grabs up a grip similar to his, but which happens to belong to a woman of an unknown temper and unsympathetic nature. When Billy discovers to his horror that his grip, instead of containing valuable papers, contains lingerie and false hair, he nearly collapses. In his confusion, before risking detection by his wife, Billy tries to get rid of the grip. In the meanwhile, Mrs. Uneven Temper discovers her loss and goes with clenched fists for the mere man who presumed to rob her of her appendages and rightful possessions. Naturally, when Greek meets Greek there is a tug of war. This refers to Billy's wife and Mrs. Uneven Temper. Billy, however, is not Greek. He ran for dear life and in doing so complicated things still more. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
