College students Andy Shaeffer and Susan Daniels are pinned. While Susan works hard to put herself through college, Andy sponges off his parents, his mother, Madeline Shaeffer, who in particular will give him whatever he wants. In other words, Andy is a mama's boy, which he doesn't really realize. Andy and Susan have used the word love to describe their relationship, but Susan isn't sure if that's what they are really feeling for each other or if it is solely a loveless passion. And if it is love, she isn't sure their relationship can survive without Andy taking some ownership of his life. The near end of their relationship, initiated by Susan, leads to Andy starting to flunk out of college, which in turn makes Andy a prime candidate to be drafted. During basic training at Camp Ord, California, Andy makes it clear to his superiors and his fellow privates that he doesn't want to be there and will do only what is requested of him without any extra effort. His superiors and fellow privates in turn see that Andy's privileged life has not done him any favors, especially after Mrs. Shaeffer makes a visit to the camp. But after it looks like Andy may be a lost cause, his superiors make a bold move to try and turn him into a man.

Navy men William Clark, Rico Ferrari and Danny Smith have struck up a friendship based on their misadventures despite Bill being a chief petty officer and the other two merely seamen. They are on a 48 hour liberty in San Francisco. Each is looking forward to the liberty, but each encounters problems there. Bill has been pre-engaged to a showgirl named Ginger for six years, she who he truly loves. She believes his continual enlistment is an excuse not to marry her. As such, she dumps him for - gasp - a civilian. Rico's mother wants to get remarried, but Rico's appearance may thwart her plans. And Danny hasn't told his friends that his father is a navy rear admiral as he doesn't want to appear to get any special treatment. His professional destiny is to go to Annapolis like his father did and as his father did. But Danny's bigger problem is his innocent sister Susan, who wants to take up with showman Wendell Craig, who, starring in a navy themed show called "Hit the Deck", promises her a part. Danny, based on comments by one of Wendell's featured performers Carol Pace, is afraid that Wendell's audition process is more of a casting couch. The three friends vow to help the others over their crises, but their misadventures continue - especially in their attempt to protect Susan - which could cause problems with the naval shore patrol, which in turn could be an issue with Rear Admiral Smith. Along the way, some possible romances ensue - between Rico and Susan, and between Danny and Carol - if only their misunderstandings wouldn't get in the way.
