Featuring George Burns and Gracie Allen. After the cast is introduced, and background of their careers are given, the parts are introduced with their prospective actors.
A car is driven by George Burns, a man with a lot on his mind. He’s a big business man who is planning a deal over the weekend, and Dulcie is arranging a party for the events to take place. Dulcie is Gracie, and is as dipsy as usual as she greets George at the door. In telling her party plan, and guests, she has invited powerful men of differing political views. Will her party help, or hurt George’s chances at his promotion, and standing with his clients?
The Forbes have a daughter who Dulcie is also trying to hook up as a matchmaker, but will her choice of mates lead to more rifts in the high power execs?
The surprise guests enter with varying reactions. Dulcie is just an upbeat, perky, and oblivious person who drags all the stodgy characters into her world. She has a way of homing in on the least desired things of her guests, like playing golf or bridge, and forcing her guests to do just those things. Is the fact that they comply a good thing, or are they just humoring her?
Can Gordon, George Burns, patch things up with his client? Dulcie’s matchmakeing seems to have worked, and the young couple decide to run away that night and elope. Dulcie is ecstatic over it, but her brother, Willie seems less so, although he cooperates with the plans to keep it secret. He has a thing for the young lady, but does he stand a chance of winning her back?
News of the elopement is out, and the Forbes are very upset, threaten to leave, and back out as business clients. Dulcie is in tears over her failure, but help comes from her other house guest, Mr VanDyke. The business shift actually appears to work out better for Gordon, but bad news comes when the Forbes announce a diamond neclace is missing. Gordon parts ways with the Forbes, and looks forward to being his rival.
More unsettling news comes when Mr Vandyke turns out to be an escaped ward from a looney bin, not the millionaire that he claimed. Now Gordon faces serious problems with his former client Forbes. It all will have to work itself out in the climactic scenes, right after the commercial break.
Next morning we see just how mentally unstable the fake Vandyke is, but also that the man who came for him, a lawyer of the VanDyke business is the real man in charge. As the remaining house guests continue the plan of the day, Dulcie and Gordon talk. They face the reality of being driven out of business, and having to start over without a cent. At least they’ll have each other.
Forbes is back to apologize for his behavior, as does Dulcie. The diamonds have been accounted for, but in the process, Dulcie spills the beans about the secret of VanDyke. Forbes thinks it’s all a fancy bluff, and now refuses to let Gordon off his business arrangement. Even the eloped daughter is back, but Forbes is pleasantly surprised and relieved to know that the original intended groom is gon, and Gracie’s brother has ended up the happy groom. A much better result to get on Forbes good side.
The happy Forbes even bumps up Gordon’s salary to a nice hefty sum.
