The friend appears to be cheating. They smoke cigars. The mother does housework. The doctor is shocked to see that the baby, in a diaper, is the size of a grown man. The doc then joins the men in the card game. The baby escapes his carriage and crawls into hiding. Mother is distraught that she can't find the baby, while the men continue the game.
