On honeymoon with his new bride, Susan, Mexican-born police officer Mike Vargas agrees to investigate a car bombing.

The soldiers spike the lemonade and Trudy dances with a number of GIs. During one boogie-woogie number, Trudy's energetic partner tosses her in the air, and she bangs her head on a chandelier, rendering her unconscious. When she wakes up, she discovers that she's wearing a wedding ring, and, a few weeks later, that she's pregnant. But who and where is the husband and father? Confiding only in her younger-but-wiser, wisecracking sister Emmy, she plans to get Norval to marry her.

Norval's willing to do anything to help her, but whatever Trudy asks him to do only makes things worse!
