Plot

Bugs agrees to go to a bachelor auction for charity, which will be held by Porky. Daffy eventually coaxes Porky to let him be a bachelor too, and they later go to the auction. After the auctioning of one bachelor, Porky presents Bugs, causing two women to feud until Lola bids $100,000 and wins Bugs, to his surprise. Daffy takes his turn, and after Porky describes him, all of the women glare at him with disgust. Then, Granny bids a mere twenty-five cents when no one else bids, causing the duck to gape. Later, Daffy arrives at Granny's house, and Granny plans on spending their date cleaning the attic. Meanwhile, Lola arrives at Bugs' house and insists they go to Paris, stating that, as the bidder, she gets to decide what they get to do for up to but not exceeding twenty-four hours, forcing Bugs to submit to her plans. On the plane, Bugs notes that the flight is ten hours to go to Paris and ten more to go back, which would use up twenty of their hours together. Annoyed by Lola's subsequent constant chatting, Bugs puts a magazine on his face as the plane takes off.

Daffy and Granny go up to Granny's attic, which is full of various items, such as lamps and vases. Granny instructs Daffy to discard anything broken and to organize and clean anything else while she leaves to get tea. As Daffy cleans, he sweats while Granny arrives with the tea, which is hot. An enraged Daffy notes the attic is sweltering and tea can be iced, only for Granny to point out that ice harms teeth. When Daffy finds a picture of her younger self, Granny proceeds to tell a story about being a spy in World War II. While she tells of spying and getting caught by the Germans, Bugs and Lola arrive in Paris, where Lola becomes excited to see the Louvre, thinking it is a mall. Discovering the Louvre in actuality is a museum, Lola becomes disappointed and drags Bugs away, thinking they should explore more of Paris.

At Granny's house, Granny continues her story and tells about fleeing from the Germans and finding her carrier pigeon, Tweety. Daffy, however, interrupts by asking if she died, and as Granny goes downstairs to nap, Bugs and Lola visit the Eiffel Tower, which Lola mistakes for Stonehenge. Bugs corrects her, only for her to refuse to listen and say it might have been made by aliens, and when Lola's watch beeps, she panics because they have not fallen in love yet. Later at Granny's house, Daffy wakes Granny up and her to continue her story. She tells of a German who was trying to steal the Eiffel Tower while she was hanging on to it. Tweety saved Granny's life when the latter was about to fall, and they pursued the thief trying to steal the Eiffel Tower.

Bugs and Lola visit Versailles, which Lola mistakes for the White House. Bugs tells Lola to stop talking, and they continue sightseeing while holding hands. In the process, they have their pictures painted and kiss, only for Lola to ruin the moment by speaking, to which Bugs responds by dropping her. Meanwhile at Granny's house, Granny resumes her story by telling about when she was almost killed by the Germans. However, she managed to avoid their attacks, then went on to attack the thief trying to steal the Eiffel Tower. Afterward, she commended Tweety and returned the Eiffel Tower, and the thief was imprisoned while she was rewarded. In response to Daffy's inquiry, Granny states her reward was the original Eiffel Tower, which now lies on her property, and the one in Paris is a fake. Ending the date, Granny and Daffy speak positively about their time together.

Daffy returns home and posts on the fridge a picture of himself and Granny in front of the Eiffel Tower at Granny's house. Bugs returns as well and posts a picture of him and Lola in front of the Eiffel tower in Paris, and the rabbit becomes confused upon seeing the two photographs. Afterward, Sylvester asks Tweety if he really was in World War II and gets an affirmative. The cat then asks Tweety his age, but when Tweety refuses to disclose his age, Sylvester asks about the canary's gender, the answer to which Tweety whispers into Sylvester's ear, leaving the feline surprised.
