Synopsis

M. T. House threatens to dispossess Dick Corwin and Jack Mitchell if they do not pay their rent by noon. The boys decide to "touch" Dick's uncle, Seth Corwin, who is suing M. T. House in court. (Dick loves Gwen Townley, Corwin's ward, while Jack is in love with Gwen's chum, Laura.) The case is postponed for 2 weeks so that an unknown woman, the principal witness, can be found. Corwin's lawyer urges him to marry the mystery woman, since a wife cannot testify against her husband; and Dick is assigned the task of finding her. M. T. House overhears the scheme and decides to marry her himself. Jack is mistaken for a burglar and evades capture by disguising himself as a woman. The deception is so successful that Dick urges Jack to pose as the unknown woman, "Madame Behave." After various complications, Corwin and M. T. House are reconciled, while the young folks participate in a double wedding.
