The story, narrated in a single act, begins when Ben arrives at Lucy’s apartment to ask her for her hand in marriage. However, Lucy is constantly on the phone and Ben can’t seem to find enough time between calls to pop the question. Ben, who’s going away and doesn’t want to miss the train, leaves without proposing, but decides to makes one final attempt: he calls Lucy from a telephone booth and asks her to marry him. She accepts and, before saying goodbye, makes sure that her fiancé remembers her phone number.
