Helen, one of the society ladies Julie used to know comes over to see how Julie is and meet the man who made her give up her wealth. Bob is bad company, because he's failed to sell a painting. However, Julie gives him a pep talk and the two of them go to the park where he paints again. A riot breaks out between soldiers over the painting, and Bob gets publicity, but for the riot rather than his work. They have a lot of reporters who pretend to be gallery owners, and they throw them all out. Finally, Mr. Bawltitude, a real one shows up. He likes Bob's work and agrees to exhibit his paintings. Bob gets a lot of money, and Julie finds that he's moved them into a huge apartment with servants. Helen comes around advising him on what to paint. Instead of his usual type of work, he spends time painting for rich people. When a professor from his old neighborhood asks Bob to speak to the class, he turns the professor down. Julie thinks he's turned into a snob and leaves him. Bob finds out he's lost his talent and has to regain it. Bob and Julie also have to find a way to regain their relationship.
