Peters and Dudley, with their wives, are speeding along in their auto. The machine suddenly breaks. A passing wagon is hailed and the driver is induced to take their wives to town while their husbands struggle to fix the auto. They finally give up and start down the road in search of some place where they can secure help to repair the auto. They come upon an insane asylum and are admitted by the gatekeeper. Dudley and Peters are placed in padded cells, from which they afterwards escape, but not without being chased by the inmates and keepers. Just as they reach the outside of the gate their wives appear upon the scene. Explanations by them are made to the Professor and the doctor, who gradually grasp the situation, and which is further explained by the arrival of the two expected "daffies" announced in the morning mail.
