A chorus girl by the name of Peggy Harper (Betty Hutton) quits her job as a chorus girl to get a daytime job to see her lawyer boyfriend Oliver Clark (Sonny Tufts) more often. She gets a job as a private secretary for a Mr. Wallace Brent.

One day at the office, he keeps pawing Peggy and trying to "neck" with her, and so she flees the office, all to come back the same night to get her coat, purse, and hat, and also run into the police. Peggy Harper is accused of murdering her boss. She confesses just so she can get Oliver to be her lawyer and defend her at the jury to showcase his talent.
