When Lucy and Ethel accidentally pledge $500 each for a charity drive, they resort to dressing up like Martians on top of the Empire State Building as part of a publicity stunt for fast money.
When a former high school classmate and old nemisis of Lucy named Cynthia Harcourt (Mary Jane Croft), who has done very well for herself, and now heads up a charitable drive for their alma mater, contacts her for a charitable donation, Lucy attempts to impress her old classmate by exaggerating her wealth and status. Soon Lucy and Ethel both find themselves in debt to this woman by five hundred dollars each, and in their desperation, they take stunt jobs as "women from Mars" to promote a new movie.
