Jack is dating a wealthy socialite, Jessica Barnish. The girls are worried that Jack is out of his league when he pretends to be wealthy himself. They are proved right when Jack goes to a charity ball with Jessica and ends up losing $15,000 gambling. While Larry tries to help Jack win the money back, the girls, posing as waitresses, attempt to explain to Mr. Barnish that Jack doesn't have that kind of money. Meanwhile, Jack's luck has turned and he has more chips than he can count. When the trio discovers that Jack has been gambling with play money all along, the only thing lost is Jack's pride, and his future with Jessica.
