Summary expansion
The beautiful young cook is making bread when the husband walks in: "Ah, ha! I see why I'm forbidden in the kitchen, it's because the cook is so bewitchin." In the next scene, he proclaims "French cooks are the dearest one can hire, but they're the kind I thoroughly admire." Then, after some kissing and embracing, the husband departs with a telltale flour imprint of two hands on the back of his jacket. When his wife discovers the handprints, she promptly fires the cook. The final card is of a newly-hired black cook, who states "I'm sure Massa Brown will prefer my apple pies, and I'll not git fired fo' making' goo-goo eyes."
