Jerry then promises Rebel a spot in commercials, so he shoots commercials featuring her for VIP, a non-existent product. The commercials accidentally are broadcast on TV, thanks to perplexed company president Pete Ramsey (Tony Randall). Jerry needs to come up with a product quickly. He bribes the chemist Linus Tyler (Jack Kruschen) come up with VIP, while pretending to Carol to be the inventor himself.
VIP turns out to be an intoxicating candy. Its extreme effects lead to a one-night stand between Carol, who has a low tolerance for alcohol, and her bitter rival Jerry, complete with marriage license. Carol has the marriage annulled but Jerry convinces the Liquor Industry to give Carol a quarter of its advertising. Jerry leaves town to work in California, only to be called back nine months later to remarry Carol just before she gives birth to their child.
