Bobby Vernon can't seem to get a break in this romantic comedy from the Christie studios. After attending a wedding, Vernon visits a friend (William Irving), who wants to know why he hasn't married. When Vernon explains he just hasn't gotten to know the right girl, the friend tells him to just go after the girl he wants. Vernon takes his advice, and when he sees a pretty girl on the street (Natalie Joyce), he follows her. The girl panics and has him arrested. His friend bails him out, but then Vernon sees the same girl in a hallway. Her screams bring the police and once again he is arrested. After bailing him out again, his friend takes him to his office and while he is sitting there, the very same girl appears. The friend reappears in time to rescue him from the cops and brings him home. The panicked girl is there -- she turns out to be his friend's wife. After everything is explained, the wife's sister (Frances Lee) comes over -- and she turns out to be the right girl.
