Veteran George Haverstick meets nurse Isabel while in the hospital and soon marries her. However, Isabel is disappointed to learn that George drives a hearse and has booked them a dingy motel for their honeymoon, during which he falls asleep drunk. The next day, the couple visits George's friend Ralph, who originally married Dorothea for money but now loves her. Dorothea wants to leave Ralph, and the Haversticks try to help him.
