Flirtatious blonde Trudy Kockenlocker is disappointed that her father, gruff town constable Ed Kockenlocker, won't let her go to an army dance. She outwits him by getting nerdy Norval Jones--who's had a crush on Trudy since they were teenagers--to take her to the movies, so she can slip out to the dance. The soldiers spike the lemonade and Trudy dances with a number of GIs. During one boogie-woogie number, Trudy's energetic partner tosses her in the air, and she bangs her head on a chandelier, rendering her unconscious. When she wakes up, she discovers that she's wearing a wedding ring, and, a few weeks later, that she's pregnant. But who and where is the husband and father? Confiding only in her younger-but-wiser, wisecracking sister Emmy, she plans to get Norval to marry her. Norval is 4-F because of his extremely nervous condition, but he desires only two things in life: Trudy and to be in the army. Norval's willing to do anything to help her, but whatever Trudy asks him to do only makes things worse!
