At Balmont Stevens Inc, a small New York Wall Street brokerage firm, stockbroker Jack Kenderson is headed to the altar with his fiancée, Alex Brill, to the dismay of the loathsome office lout Freddie Sacker who tries to encourage Jack that he should remain a bachelor. He later fights off the advances of his former classmate, Catherine Miller who joins the firm as the new head broker. But shocking news from a friend revealing Alex's previous relationship provokes Jack to break their engagement. The ambitious, but naive intern, Tim Sherman, tries very hard to adjust at Balmont Stevens but soon becomes the butt of Freddie's shenanigans and his supervisor Tom Divack's demands. Meanwhile, receptionist Donna Pasqua tries to get Chris McConnell to notice her more after their previous one-night-stand. Elsewhere, veteran broker Evan Mitchell becomes attracted to an exotic dancer at a club. Also, Catherine soon clashes with the sexist Freddie over the ability to make more money.
