Norma (Dorothy Sebastian) is in love with her boss Bill (Neil Hamilton). Everyone is aware of this -- except for Norma and Bill. Left penniless by several bonehead business transactions, Bill concocts a scheme to make a great deal of money in a hurry. The plan hinges on Norma's marriage to a wealthy playboy (John Holland). Incredibly, the much-used heroine returns to Bill for the finale, convincing him to forsake caviar in favor of hot dogs. But Norma is no fool: in a gag ending, she lets Bill know in no uncertain terms that she's going to be calling the shots from now on.
