Office clerk Lambert T. Hunkins gets a ten-dollar raise and his girlfriend, Violet Coney, and her mother learn that he has also some money saved, and decide it is time Lambert and Violet got married and start supporting them. Lambert is secretly in lone with Iris Mabby, daughter of Senator Mabby, and he clips all the pictures of her that appears in the newspapers. Violet and Mom railroad him into getting engaged to Violet, and take him to an auction to buy for furniture for future use. Instead, he buys an-unauthorized statue of Iris. Her father wants it back, Lambert refuses and won't sell it at any price. Then a trio of gangsters show up with intentions of selling it to the senator at a very high price. Complications ensue en mass.
