Madge Dreyer, a salesgirl in a department store, is fired when she strikes one of the owners for making an impertinent proposition. At dinner with a girl friend, Betty Gerber, Madge decides to work as a "taxi-dancer" where Betty works in the evenings and where Betty's beau, Red Welch, is the bouncer. Jeff Sanford, a spirited society youth, leads an expedition to Roseman's and becomes involved in a free-for-all, following which Sanford strikes up a breezy courtship with Madge and they are soon engaged. The Sanford family, however, are bitterly opposed to an alliance that will bring a dancehall girl into their circle. Arriving at the Sanford residence, Madge is greeted by Mrs. Hasbrouck, the Sanford sister, with icy politeness; then Delancy is shocked to find that she is his ex-employee. Jeff returns from a business trip, discovers that his brother, Gerald, has fallen in love with Madge, and he himself is happily united with a former sweetheart.
