Caught in a heavy rainstorm without a car, Edward Everett Horton purchases a dilapidated taxicab so that he can get his girlfriend Marion Nixon home safely. The couple arrives at a rustic church, where Nixon impishly talks Horton into getting married. But before the ceremony concludes, the police arrive; it turns out that Horton had bought the taxi from a gang of crooks who'd stolen the vehicle. Making matters worse, Nixon's guardian shows up, angrily demanding Horton's hide. The couple dashes out of the church, with the cops and the guardian in hot pursuit -- though they manage to circle the building often enough for the preacher to pronounce them husband and wife.
