The Carters (Irene Rich and Huntley Gordon), a nouveau riche couple from Peoria, Illinois, decide to take a trip to Europe in the company of John Carter's best friend Henry (William Demarest). While in Paris, Henry begins squiring the coquettish Suzanne (Lilyan Tashman), who throws him over in favor of Carter. Mrs. Carter gets wise to her husband's philandering and arranges to catch John and Suzanne together as grounds for divorce. John agrees to break up the marriage, but only on the proviso that his pal Henry become Mrs. Carter's second husband. A sagacious justice of the peace decides to solve everyone's problems by tricking Mr. and Mrs. Carter into remarrying each other and by arranging a quick wedding for Henry and the now-chastened Suzanne.
