a- Don (Mr. Charles Quartermaine) brings home Mrs. Thompsett (Miss Christine Silver), whom he has taken from her husband because the temperaments of the husband and wife violently disagree. The consternation of his parents, his fiancee, and her parents at this quixotic act are shown. b- Mrs. Thompsett faints, and Don tries to restore her while his future father-in-law (Mr. Dawson Milward) looks on in indignant amazement at - as he considers them - the profligate couple. c- The arrival of the rough Puritan Thompsett (Mr. Norman McKinnel) in pursuit of his wife and Don. He is telling his story to the Canon, whom he despises as being a Church of England man. Ultimately he is convinced of Don's good intentions, and is reconciled to his wife. d- Don's good-hearted but conventional parents, who entirely fail to understand their good but troublesome son. (Miss Frances Ivor as Mrs. Bonington and Mr. James Hearn as Canon Bonington). e- Don's fiancee, Ann (Miss Ellen O'Malley), Mrs. Thompsett, and Don's mother try to prevent Don from meeting the murderously infuriated Mr. Thompsett.
