While Ann gets into an altercation with a bully, a window washer named Rudy Clarn comes to her rescue. Rudy gets a punch in the nose from the bully for his troubles. That punch leads to further problems with Rudy's wife, Ethel, who believes Rudy only helped Ann because she's a beautiful young woman on who he has designs. In addition, Ethel believes Rudy's injury is all Ann's fault. Later, after Ethel sees Ann give Rudy an innocent thank you kiss on the cheek, Ethel, who believes Ann and Rudy are having an affair, tells Ann that she's leaving him, and that she'll be on the 5:15 bus out of town back home to East St. Louis. Ann has to find Rudy through the skyscrapers of New York City by 5:15 to tell him where to go to stop Ethel from leaving, which may be even more difficult because of all the misunderstandings she encounters.
