Nine years later, James is Teddy's valet with aspirations of promotion to household butler, until Stokes - who's been performing with his daughter Ivy (Sue Pollard) in a music hall act - applies for the position with references he blackmailed out of a former employer. Stokes gets Ivy a position as a maid in the household, warning her not to reveal that he's her father, and pointing out to James that anything he might say to discredit him would incriminate himself.
