Synopsis

Reporter Tom Maguire and his editor Irene Duncan respect each other professionally, but personally they are opposites. Irene is searching for the perfect mate, while Tom fears commitment. When Tom slips a disc in his back after pushing Irene's car out of the mud, Irene offers to let him stay with her. She not only feels guilty about his injury, but about the fact that she just fired Tom for having an affair with the boss' wife. When she learns that Tom doesn't have health insurance now that he is unemployed, she feels even worse and on a whim offers to marry him so he can use her insurance. This friendly gesture turns into a comedy of errors when the insurance company and Irene's mother become suspicious about the arrangement.
