The Dean family are now launched on the high seas of opulence and are prepared to break into society. Their one great ambition is to possess the famous Carmon Jewels, which they have seen at Biffany's. A pair of precious rascals get news of this and try to pass off a fake imitation of the jewels on old man Dean. They call at his home, his wife as usual, pushes him aside, and decides in her eagerness, to take the bogus necklace. Fortunately, he is called up by Biffany's on the telephone and becomes wise to the attempted swindle. The police are notified, the men are arrested and Dean saves his cash. This bit of good luck, which Papa Dean announces to his family as an evidence of his great shrewdness, raises him as a hero in their estimation. His wife and daughters compliment and caress him and Mama Dean is obliged to acknowledge that he is a little more than mere man.
