CROSS-DRESSING MAID A man gives a girl a gift with a flourish but she's unimpressed. As the man leaves, he pulls the rug out from under a laughing rival and flees an ugly man wearing a maid's uniform. The maid carries the tripped man to a chair and caresses him but the tripped man jumps out of his/her lap and kicks him/her in the behind, inadvertently causing the maid to become even more attracted and jump in his arms. Very broad slapstick.
