They run inside the music hall, but Veronica is already on stage dancing. They call to her and are thrown out. Around back, Stan tells their sob story to the doorman, who lets them backstage. As they give her the fruitcake and flowers, a pretty lady recruits Stan as an emergency replacement in their acrobat act. He quickly fouls that up, and as the troupe chases him and Ollie, Veronica reads on the card in the flowers that they are from a producer.
