Jason Kingsley is treasurer of a billion dollar patent medicine corporation that requires its officers to be married. Jason claims his wife has a rare disease that prevents her from entertaining or attending corporate functions. A cure is accidently discovered in one of the company's patent medicines and Jason's ecstatic boss is arriving any minute with the company doctor to administer the cure and then bask in the publicity. Jason, however, doesn't really have a wife so he cons his fiancee Nicki into pretending to be the invalid. Other impostors appear: friend Poopsie Magruder who initially refused shows up anyhow and Vonga the Jungle Girl was pressed into service by the helpful housekeeper. The cure involves a two inch needle in the armpit and it develops that the disease is contagious, which only complicates the hilarity.
