Quillan plays a good-hearted department store employee who willingly takes the blame when customers find something wrong with the merchandise. One day his selfless deeds are rewarded when a patron slips him a $10 bill as a tip. Excited by this good fortune, Quillan immediately goes to

his bank to deposit the bill. On the way, he inadvertently gives the bill to Starr, a nurse seeking contributions for an orphanage. Soon Quillan learns that he has committed himself to supporting a child, and having taken a liking to Starr and little Scott, he gets another job to beef up his

income. His bliss is short-lived however, and Quillan is shocked to learn that a wealthy man, Clary, believes Scott to be his grandson. Claiming that the baby is his son's child, Clary adopts the boy, leaving Quillan to plot ridiculous kidnaping schemes to regain custody. Eventually Quillan proves

that Scott is not related to Clary and the child is returned to him. Wanting to give Scott a complete life, Quillan proposes to Starr and she accepts.
