Senior reveals that he is going to marry Leslie Collier, the famous stage star, and Junior and his wife Enid are horrified and expect the worse from the hot-tempered father and the volatile actress. They have been married only five minutes before they have a quarrel, and have to be carried out of the house to begin a sea-voyage honeymoon. Carlos, a penniless stowaway with a high opinion of his singing ability, is invited to stay with Senior and his bride when they return to New York, the idea that sponsoring Carlos' career will give Leslie the limelight she promised to fore-go when she married Senior. The routine of arranging Carlos' debut disrupts the Osborne home and Senior goes home to the children. To save Senior's marriage, Junior and Enid invite Carlos to stay in their home. Junior too soon stalks out. Senior and Junior's solution to save their marriages is to finance Carlos' career in the farthest-away place they can find, and still effect a reconciliation with the wives.
