One of the clerks in the office where Clarence Lusk is employed tells him to be sure and see a musical show that is playing in the city. Clarence hurries through the business of the day, rushes to a restaurant, eats hurriedly and arrives at the theater door just as it is opened. He is the first one in the house, but the theater gradually fills as the curtain rises. His first view of the stage is obscured by late arrivals and, when he finally gets a clear view of the stage, the curtain falls. He leaves in disgust, tearing up his programme and seat check, vowing "Never again."
