After being in Hollywood for a month with lots of compliments but no offers, girl next door Libby Caruso decides to give up on having a singing career and focus on what she believes is her destiny: to be a wife, hopefully to a doctor. To nab a husband, she believes she has to get a job where many eligible bachelors would notice her, that job despite she having no skills besides singing. Away from her job as a Girl Friday at a brokerage firm, Libby, upon seeing him, believes she is destined to marry Paul Davis, who works at the product development company where Libby's best friend and roommate Jan McNair works, and who believes he is God's gift to the world, if only anyone would notice. Jan knows that Libby isn't Paul's type, he who didn't even notice her. However, who may be Libby's type, but who she in turn didn't really notice is Cuz Rickover, part-time supermarket stock-boy and part-time bass player among some other part-time activities. Ultimately, Paul believes he can help Libby and in turn help himself in developing a product for market that Libby created to make her 9-to-5 life easier. But as Paul helps Libby with the product with Libby in turn hoping to get Paul to ask her to marry him, Libby gets an opportunity to showcase her singing to a wide audience. So as Libby's 9-to-5 life, her pursuit of a husband, the product development and the singing seem to be moving up and down simultaneously, Libby has to decide where her focus lies. The answers as to what she should do with her life may just fall into place by others giving those areas a little push.

She is providing a freebie to Matt Hornbeck, a radiologist who initially doesn't know what she does or that she is trying to set him up with one of her true clients. After finding out what she was doing and being burned by the experience, Matt decides he would rather be a confirmed bachelor. Meanwhile, by chance, Mae meets Kitty Bennett, a department store model who also doesn't know what Mae does for a living. Mae learns that Kitty has just found out her boyfriend is married. Being a good judge of human character in such situations doing what she does for a living, Mae knows that he will do or say anything to keep Kitty, she the type of girl who probably doesn't have the willpower to say no to him. So Mae takes it upon herself to help Kitty, both by getting rid of the married boyfriend, and setting her up with who she thinks would be Kitty's perfect match, namely confirmed bachelor Matt who may not fall for Mae's scheming the second time around despite the catch being beautiful Kitty. Kitty, too, may view a relationship with Matt differently if she knew she was being manipulated, especially by someone in Mae's profession.
