He is first confused, but then impressed by Ketty and thinks of a plan in which Ketty will go into service as a housekeeper with mother. But Ketty is not so agile in housekeeping as she is in dancing, so this is a disaster. The same day the mother goes to visit Ketty and this time Ketty fools her by pretending a doll is a baby.
