Sadie is the favorite typewriter of the establishment. Both Binks and Bingles lay siege to her heart. Both invite her to go to the theater. Each reserves seats. Bingles, to put one over on Binks, gets the rest of the employees to make believe that he is ill. They all tell him that he is looking terribly, until poor Binks decides to go home and go to bed. Just as he is leaving, he overhears Bingles tell the boys that the scheme has worked to perfection. On his way home, he stops at the theater, and tells the ticket-seller that he can cancel two of the seats for that evening, and reserve only two for Binks. That evening, Bingles, thinking that the coast is now clear, stops for Sadie and takes her to the show. When he and Sadie arrive they find that his seats have been sold. Sadie is distressed. Binks puts in an appearance in full dress suit and high hat. He offers to share one of his seats with her. She accepts, and Bingles, crestfallen, stands aghast.
