A battle royal ensues when husband Edward Everett Horton tells his wife Laura LaPlante that she can't buy an expensive new rug. In high dudgeon, LaPlante decides to go back to work so she can earn extra pocket money -- even though Horton has expressly forbidden her from doing so. On her own, our heroine lands a secretarial job at the very company where our hero is employed, requiring a lot of calisthenics to prevent hubby from finding out. The fun really begins when Horton is inveigled into posing as his boss' junior partner at a fancy reception -- and is further ordered to introduce the partner's wife as his own. So guess who also shows up at the party?
