Storyline

Portly Mr. Smith and lean Mrs. Smith are spending the evening at home. Mrs. Smith is embroidering; Mr. Smith is reading. The telephone bell rings. Mr. Smith answers it and his face brightens. Mrs. Smith unconcernedly allows him to excuse himself, saying that he is going to bed, Mr. Smith places a dummy in his bed, and makes it look very real. Then he dons his evening clothes and goes to his club by way of the window. Mrs. Smith decides that quietness is not to her taste. She telephones to her bridge club, and tells the hostess she will sneak over. Mrs. Smith is delighted to find her husband sleeping peacefully, far be it from her to wake him up.

A real old-time Bunnyfinch

A real old-time Bunnyfinch. Bunny, condemned to remain in his home instead of joining the "boys," outwits the wife, who insists on keeping him in view. A little later, after he has escaped, leaving in his bed a dressmaking form and a bronze bust, the wife surreptitiously accepts an invitation to play cards. The denouement makes good comedy, and, as a matter of fact, so does all of the picture. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
