Sadie Hermann, saleslady in a New York fur establishment, cherishes one ambition--to go to Paris. One day while on her way to work, Sadie is extricated from the crowded subway by Herb McCarthy, a subway guard, and strikes up a friendly conversation; Herb makes a date to meet her beneath Cleopatra's Needle in Central Park the following Sunday. Soon the couple are engaged; and Sadie, promoted to the position of buyer for her firm, is told she is to sail for Paris. Sadie is thus obliged to cancel their wedding date, and Herb is disheartened. On the day she is to depart, Sadie receives a wire from Herb saying that he is in the hospital as the result of an accident. Sadie goes to him, and they decide on matrimony instead of Paris and the buying job; then Herb reveals that his father is president of the subway company.
