The terminally ill Mr. Waistline wants the best room in the hotel, so that he can enjoy himself while he still can. The Baron befriends him and graciously gives up his own room. Meanwhile, the great dancer 'Madam' is despondent and does not want to perform. The Baron slips into her room to steal her pearls, but then tries to comfort her. Prizering is at the hotel with an attractive stenographer, hoping to close a big business deal. And yet there are still those who say that 'nothing ever happens here.' Written by
