Mr. and Mrs. Witherspoon, newlyweds, return from their wedding tour to settle down in their home town. Instead of enjoying peace, their relatives descend on them in a cloud. Cousin Clarence, a lean, lanky, inquisitive individual, annoys them. Another relative suddenly breaks in and the young couple are constantly interrupted in their spooning. The relatives pour in thick and fast, all cranks of the first water, one a health crank, another a spiritual medium, etc. The young husband is timid and hates to evict them, hut Molly O'Hara, the servant, is equal to the emergency. She decorates her face with cranberry sauce and feigns illness. The relatives mistake her painted face for a contagious disease and make a wild scramble for the front hall where there is a laughable mix-up, after which the Witherspoons are left to themselves.
