Young Eddie asks his widowed father, "Don't you think it's time you got married again? A growing boy needs a mother and a lonesome young man needs a pretty wife!" Eddie soon finds suitable candidates: the lovely nurse in the apartment upstairs or an appealing and friendly beauty contest winner. When the stunning Rita appears on the scene - Tom begins to do a little courting of his own. Tom has his hands full trying to cope with Eddie's school problems, his job, and the three lovely girls who seem to adore Eddie.
