Three misfits form a hilarious romantic triangle. Rose, a vulnerable girl who is full of life and love, is walking home late one night when she is robbed and abducted by an armed man wearing pantyhose over his head. Her shy abductor, Lincoln, is an incurable romantic who only wants to win Rose's heart. His impulsive method of courting is especially unfortunate because Rose is already engaged to Stuart, a rigidly law loving Beverly Hills police officer. Their humorous relationship and Rose's unmet emotional needs are amusingly revealed when she tells Stuart about the exciting hold up. Delighted by Lincoln's offbeat wisdom, Rose falls in love with him but finds she is pregnant with Stuart's child the handcuffs are to blame. Lincoln wants to marry Rose just the same, but she insists they seek permission from her guardian Stuart, who responds with a punch that knocks out Lincoln. At that moment Rose realizes that it is her permission that matters.
