Description: Henry and his fiancée Doris are arguing over a party they have just left. As Doris leaves to return to the party, the landlady, Mrs. Le Moine, arrives with a large package that contains an enormous white bearskin rug. When unrolled and placed on the floor, it makes an incredible difference to the atmosphere in the room. Mrs. Le Moine practically throws herself in Henry's arms, and they are discovered by Doris. Henry persuades Doris to stand on the rug with him. Its effect is immediate, and they are kissing when Mrs. Le Moine returns with the news that the rug really belongs to the upstairs neighbour Sidney. With its departure, things settle down to the same dull reality. Doris resumes her nagging and Henry returns to his role as a bullied man.
