Young bride Patricia Morley's flirtatious ways at a summer resort keep her husband Henry in a state of continual anxiety. At an old-fashioned barn dance, Patricia enacts the role of a chicken breaking out of an egg, and Henry's wrath explodes. After accusing her of being in love with another man, Henry returns to New York and files for divorce. Heartbroken, Patricia sends her friend Victoria French to tell Henry that she is dying. Meanwhile, Patricia goes to a hospital and alarms the staff with her hysterical conduct. Later the nurse discovers that Patricia is bluffing. Henry arrives at the hospital just in time to see Patricia pretending to be nurse to his divorce lawyer, Geoffrey Patten, whose leg is broken. Henry's anger explodes again, but he makes up with Patricia and they go home together. Henry hires the hospital nurse as a detective, causing more complications, but Henry finally is cured of his jealousy.
