Unable to convince them that the baby isn’t her’s, Polly tells the people of the orphanage that she has just been fired from J.B. Merlin.

Polly then has a meeting with Dan Merlin, one of the sons, and he agrees to hire back Polly for an extra $10 a week, and says that, when she arrives home, there will be a present waiting for her.
