Jane and Catherine have an antique cluttered house, unpaid bills, and a memory of marriage to the same man, now deceased. His will states they can live in the house if they don't sell its contents. They discover some jewels and a wily antique dealer gets them to accept a down payment and from then on everything they do to rectify matters gets them in deeper. The dealer's check is sent to one of their many creditors, The Revenue Service, and they accept money from a lady to pay back the dealer. When the dealer returns he tricks them again with another check as a "deposit" on the furniture. Then another woman claims the jewels. With mounting illegalities, Jane impersonates a third wife of the deceased. The dealer is about to call the police when the other two women reenter, bidding so furiously for the jewels that the price they fetch gets Jane and Catherine well out of debt.
