Roxbury Mecroft (Richard Tucker) has to go to New York incognito to engage in some top-secret financial work, and he asks his pal, architect Terry Brock (Reginald Denny), to assume his identity while he is away. As a result, bachelor Brock has to vacation in Catalina with Mecroft's wife, Edith (Ethel Grey Terry), and annoying little girl, Toodles (Muriel Frances Dana). Edith has brought her sister, Connie (Laura LaPlante), along on the trip and Brock falls madly in love with her. This causes a huge scandal amongst the society folk at Catalina and causes the hotel management to investigate the situation. Brock is compelled to evade the gossips and troublemakers in various ways in order to pursue his romance. He finds himself in a number of jams before the situation is settled to everyone's satisfaction.
