Dad is called out of town on a long business trip and decides to bring Mrs. Maxwell along. Their industrious son, Lucas, seizes the opportunity and opens up the house to boarders in order to make a little extra money. Into the paper goes the ad, and that night the Maxwell house is crawling with people. Lucy Burns, a sort of walking encyclopedia, arrives first; then Mrs. Mott, who never says a word. Next arrives Ninety-Volt Jones and his wrestling wife, Ruby; they’re followed by Mr. Potter, Limpy McGuire, and his wife, Nora. Every room in the house is full, Lucas is doing a bang-up business, and then it happens. His parents come home - Dad forgot his briefcase. From there on out, it’s one mess after another. Dad has to sleep on the floor, he can’t get in to the bathroom to shave, and he can’t even read the paper. To top it all off, it’s discovered that somebody in the house is a bank robber, and Dad is mistakenly carted off to jail!
