Charlie is at Mortimer's house when a flood carries it to the coast and out to sea. After close calls with a shark and a whale, the house drifts to a tropical island. The natives use elephants to pull the house inland. After trying to escape from the natives, whom they assume are cannibals, the two are brought before the King, who informs them that he had a contest for most original house and Mortimer's house won. The King gives Mortimer a bowl full of diamonds and sends the pair home on his private plane.
